Stopping Rape In India Starts With Ending Female Feticide, Dowry
I remember many years ago, when the Chinese government out of sheer desperation created the one child per family scenario, that I predicted not only female feticide, but that the resulting lack of women in the population would be a huge factor in creating frustration, sexual assault, and even war among young men..
In countries with heavy sexual taboos, combined with a belief system opining that women are less valuable than men. seems like a no brainer that this sort of ugliness would be occurring…and now the alleged rapists’ lawyer is claiming that the police beat them? Where were the police when this was happening…something drastic and fundamental will have to change in the entire Eastern hemisphere for anything to change…a tall order in the face of religious support for this attitude, in countries where religion is still an important barometer of social mores, or as in the case of China…which has large numbers of HIV cases, female feticide, and child slave labour camps, simply a lack of information given to the rest of the world…they don’t want anything interfering with their economic boom (like human rights discussions)….
The war on women continues, and will past my lifetime….
