Re: India gang rape victim dies
This is another ignorance. On the contrary, women are safe in India on *some* parameters. What many people (in India and western folks as well) don't know is many developed countries are not that shining either. Example, let's take the US:
Sexual Violence, Stalking, and Intimate Partner Violence Widespread in the US. Key findings:
=> Nearly 1 in 5 women has been raped at some time in her life.
=> One in 4 women has been a victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in her lifetime.
This is not helpful.
Pointing finger at the USA does not address the endemic issue of rape in India.
I can undersdand your pride and feel compelled to defend India because you think it is being unfairly ttreated amid this incident, but this pride is misplaced.
An objective observer can see why there is an outcry on this particular incident:
The public has had enough of violence against women and no serious action is taken against the perpetrators. So they are expressing their frustration and anger against the authorities.
