I hate violence. India definitely has issues. Don't make our mistake, make it about violence, not gender. Stereotypes swing both ways, and the truth is it is violence and not gender you take issue with. That will make you stronger, I promise. Take issue with that and no one will have a counter defense, make it about gender, and it will never end. If you call that, no one can take exception or make an excuse. Take this from a westerner who is fourth fifth generation feminist. The path is better about actions not identity. We have made our mistakes and we mire in them. Don't follow us. In fact it always is about actions not identity, if you look to your cultures wisdom.
