Why is it OK for corporate America to turn a blind eye to this type of governmental institutionalized treatment of it's people while exploiting the same for cheap labor? Where is your voice and why do you continue to do business with India or China for that matter?
I look forward to the day someone can actually apologize. "I am sincerely sorry for my disrespectful (insert appropriate word here) behavior/conduct/comments." Instead we get, "I'm sorry if I offended you." But I still mean what I say.
This is very tragic! In our country, many women will not come forward to report a sexual attack. They know the odds are stocked against them and feel no one will believe them. Women who report sexual harassment, many times ends up being retaliated against.
I always think, "What if it was your sister, mother or daughter being raped? Would you not be outraged and want justice?" Unfortunately in this culture the answer is too often, "No".
coolnout...it's cultural not governmental. Do you know that wages in India have soared along with the economic development there?
What do you expect from in country where young brides are still horribly burned from "cooking accidents" when their dowry doesn't meet their in-laws expectations? India is still a very backward country.
Wow, call me ignorant, but I can't believe that the attitude of blaming the victim is still so rampant in India. This is barbaric. To blame women for rape, and suggest that it's their attire that provoked it? This is just plain old ignorance and failure to take responsibility.
I read that India was ranked the worst country to live in as a woman. Worse, even, than Saudi Arabia! Hope the perpetrators of this outrage are tossed in jail forever.
This sickens me. The justice needs to come from the public. Step up folks and give these guys a lesson. I think it needs to start with the removal of the weapon from all of them. If it were legal I would pay to have it done.
@Ginjabelle: Sorry, but this article was about an atrocity in India. Stop trying to twist it into a failure of the Obama administration. I can't help but notice you say not a word about it being an atrocity, but instead launch into a tirade about something totally different.
