Men: Most of India is still chauvinistic and feudal in nature. Most men still want women to dress properly, not go out of the house late at night, not work and generally be docile to men all the time. How do you change that? That’s a monumental task indeed.
That’s more pronounced in rural areas, but politicians and parties would by and large do nothing for fear of upsetting their brand of votebank politics.
That’s why you keep having incidents like the Mangalore pub attack and the Assam public molestation case. Most men still think that victims are asking for it. Sick, but true.
