The recent rape of a 11 year old girl in an apartment in Chennai has triggered a lot of anguish. Women from different fields have voiced their discontent over the current state of affairs. Women are not safe in most places and unless we have quicker verdicts, awareness about rights of women and women become financially independent things are not going to change.
Rape has become a regular affair be it our own girls or foreign tourists.Recently in the poll conducted by Thomson Reuters Foundation, India was branded as the world’s most dangerous country for women even ahead of war torn countries like Syria and Afghanistan. It is high time that the government takes steps to ensure safety of women and girls.
