Violence against women: Stop this global misogyny

Posted: February 22, 2013 in Articles


Culturally ingrained misogyny and male brutality across South Asia and beyond, including the West, must be challenged, warns Shyam Bhatia, if the world does not want to see a repeat of atrocities such as December’s horrific gang-rape and killing of a young student in Delhi.

Indian and foreign opinion has been rightly outraged at the gang rape and subsequent death of the 23-year-old physiotherapy student, Jyoti Singh Pandey, who was assaulted together with her fiancé Awindra on a New Delhi bus.

Details of what happened on the bus have been revealed by Awindra, the only witness, who told the media, ‘They beat us up, hit us with an iron rod, snatched our clothes and belongings and they threw us off the bus on a deserted stretch.

‘From where we boarded the bus, they moved around for nearly two-and-a-half hours. We were shouting, trying to make people hear us,’ said the 28-year-old, who suffered a broken leg in the attack.

‘But they switched off the lights. We tried to resist them. Even my friend fought with them, she tried to save me. She tried to dial police control room number 100, but the men snatched the mobile.’
