Heinous crimes in a misogynist society that validates and perpetuates rape – by A Z

16190-rape-1361527410-626-640x480A glimpse into the heinous crimes that are rife in our society but very few come to light. No wonder in a misogynist society that validates and perpetuates rape a major serious newspaper fails to make the distinction between ‘sexual assault’ and ‘rape’.

How many rapists go to prison in the subcontinent? I would say less than 1%. {Given that the number is 3% for the US, even 1% seems too high for us.} The vast majority of victims do not report perpetrators to their dear ones let alone the police. Negative and misogynist social and religious attitudes to rape and sexual assault victims play a big part in the reluctance of women to come forward. It is not only the media that is unsympathetic to women who report rape or sexual assault but also the legal system, the clerics, and the society in general. The social circumstances that are used to conceal, excuse, or even justify their conduct go a long way to make the society safer for the rapists.

This father must be lauded for going to the police. Please step forward. We must work to dispel the ‘man-made’ myths and help women realize how commonplace it is, so that some may feel more emboldened to get help. We must lobby for modern and revolutionary laws to protect women against gender violence.

When will we learn to stop blaming a woman for being raped no matter what the circumstances?
When will it become more shameful to be a rapist than to be raped?
When will the victims be able to access support and justice without the fear of being judged?
The real shame, in all of this, is ours. All of us.
