A Movement Grows in India Following Reports of Mass Sexual Harassment




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?

Sex ratio:

total population: 1.08 male(s)/female (2016 est.)

total population: 1.06 male(s)/female (2016 est.)

total population: 0.97 male(s)/female (2016 est.)

total population: 0.86 male(s)/female (2016 est.)
