EDITORIAL

Dear readers,

It's not easy to be a woman. That's one thing, and is quite true in many ways. But that it's dangerous to be a woman because one's womanhood itself might be a danger to one's life and well being is quite a scary state of affairs. But it's not just scary; it's also quite embarrassing for all those men and women who are capable of feeling ashamed. Many of us might feel that crime against women is something like men against women, which is incorrect because crime against women is not just a legal issue or a law and order problem; it's as much of a social issue and men alone do not make the society. This is not to let men off the hook, but only to point out that as a people we are one men and women. And if there is a problem that has its roots in the society and our upbringing in general.

The Delhi Gangarape case brought the issues of crime against women and the safety of women in the metropolitan cities to the forefront of public debate, and also shattered the myth of public apathy to such crimes with people turning up in large numbers for peaceful demonstrations against governmental inaction. But let's not forget that the issue is much larger. Law alone can only deal with the problem to a limited extent. We need to change our outlook towards gender roles, and to rework the way we look at gender equality.

(Manish Arora)
