Comments on: Making Delhi safer for women: one reader’s (lengthy) comment http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2012/12/30/making-delhi-safer-for-women-one-readers-lengthy-comment/ Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: LiveThisDream http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2012/12/30/making-delhi-safer-for-women-one-readers-lengthy-comment/comment-page-1/#comment-27555 Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:28:51 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/?p=7989#comment-27555 Awareness, education and empowerment should reach the economically weak and socially unenlightened. Educated or not, male-dominated societies bordering Delhi will always pose a threat to liberated women in Delhi. No wonder, Delhi with 87% literacy is the worst place for a girl/woman to live. There should be some statistics available on the socidemography of rapists. How are the statistics in Kerala and Calcutta? How do cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai fare in safety for women? What cultural nuances influence these behaviors?

It looks as if we have come to terms with the fact that Delhi’s men will continue to harass, molest and rape women.

If all the steps proposed were followed, could that have saved the Delhi rape victim?

Can work more faster than speed dial on mobile, awareness programmes that eve teasing, groping is a crime. Many don’t recognize it as such. Sometimes its so scary to be surrounded by group of men passing lewd remarks, asking your number etc. While some find it funny, it’s not funny at all. I like all your suggestions.
