I don’t think that India has a monopoly on rape. Rape is sadly prevalent in every society on every level amongst the rich and the poor the educated and the uneducated. More often than not rape, sex abuse and sexual violence ‘s swept under the carpet and in some cultures ironically it’s the victim who gets punished while the rapist goes free! It would seem to me that the majority of men worldwide are much less evolved i.e. unable to control their sex drive making them not much better than animals if not worse. Plus the problems of cultures and religions and outdated beliefs that reduce the status and the value of women in general where these sad specimens of men that women are put on earth to tend to their needs and pleasures. i.e. their slaves. And the fact that punishment for rapists is inappropriate and much too mild but then how can it be different when it is men who lay down the laws!
