A recent survey shows that 94% of Indian women feel unsafe living or travelling alone, or staying alone in hotels in India. Of those who have travelled outside India, most say they feel safe travelling or living alone in hotels in western countries! Street sexual harassment, molestation, and stalking are seen as a normal part of day-to-day existence that all women are expected to put up with.
And even though most rapes are never reported in India, or of those reported most are not filed by the police, rape still is the fastest growing crime in India today. There has also been an alarming increase in the number of reports of rape of women tourists in India.
