Millions of women are not safe in their homes, on the streets, or the workplace. In India, a woman is raped every 20 minutes and only 25 percent of rape perpetrators in documented cases are arrested or face conviction. The gang-rape of a 23-year-old student in a moving bus on the night of December 16 in the capital city of Delhi has triggered anger, outrage and shock amongst every citizen this country.
Each time a rape is reported, civil society reacts with anger and outrage, which unfortunately dies down and is forgotten, until the next time in todays India.
Rape and other forms of sexual violence do not just concern women. These are societal issues that impede the progress of every nation and should concern every citizen.
