PORTRAYAL OF MEN’S ATTITUDE TOWARDS WOMEN—IS THERE ANYTHING NEW? 5/3/2015

It was sickening to watch the  discussion on the documentary ‘India’s daughter” made by  British film maker  who was going all out to defend  her purpose in making such a documentary  which portrays men’s attitude towards women. To prove her point    she  thought it was necessary to include an interview  with the   convict   as well.

I strongly feel  interviewing the  convict  and giving him publicity on the visual media will  certainly  send wrong signals   to similar deranged  men who  might seek media attention  for all the wrong reasons  instead  of  changing their chauvinistic attitude  towards women. When  some of our elected  leaders also display such puritanic  mind set, it doesn’t come as a surprise  when unsocial elements of society  echo  such  attitude towards women.

The only solution  to putting an end to crimes against women is to speed up the judicial process and give stringent punishment to  the perpetrators.  Wolfs on the prowl  like  the  one in Nirbhaya’s case  have been there right through the times but the difference is they are increasing by hundreds  and thousands all over the country. When I happened  to interview  one of the senior women advocates more than three decades ago  on the problem of rape  and whether  castration was a solution as suggested  by  the editor of the newspaper,  she thought  the punishment should  NOT  be so severe!

    the punishment to this type of crime should be severe.why not.did the senior advocate think about the trauma the victim has?In India chastity is very important for women.most of them never think about the sex with other than husband.
    i saw the documentary on thursday.there is nothing new in it except the interview with that rascal.
    what about the lawyers who is defending them.let the dogs say any nonsense.
