What is wrong with India? Whenever I hear reports of gang rapes or serious sexual harassment, its always in India!
It’s a very traditional & patriarchal society.
Men literally think women are less than them, they literally think they are entitled to women. I wish I can say more, but as an Indian (born and raised in another country), I only see glimpses of this attitude/behaviour in the older men.
Probably a lot to do with culture. I don’t know how much this plays into it but India has more men than women. I think abortion plays heavily into this and imagine infanticide happens (that’s just a wild guess though). Russia’s ratio is pretty far in the other direction because Russian men seem to die young, like in their 50’s/60’s.
China is in the same boat as India. Do they have issues like this?
