India - Violence Against Women

*

The Louts Call It "Eve teasing"

The young woman victim of the gang rape in Delhi died.  Sad.  And maddening.  Civilized nation?  Not.

The 23-year-old – who was severely beaten, raped and thrown out of a moving bus in Delhi – died on Friday in the Singapore hospital where she was being treated.

The unprecedented public protests might force the government to take some meaningful action to curb despicable behavior, long condoned. But it will take more than government action to see a change in the boorish behavior of Indians -- especially, North Indian males. There has to be broad changes in the attitude of a society dominated by men whose mindset is decades behind.
