Crimes against women are engaging national attention like never before. Let’s use this opportunity to seek solutions that’ll actually work. Rape is an extreme form of gendered violence to be urgently curbed. But it won’t do to ignore other kinds of assaults that can lead to consequences just as tragic. Take a recent stabbing case in east Delhi, whose victim was allegedly being stalked. Clearly, we need a holistic, nuts-and-bolts approach, keeping in mind that preventing crime is as crucial as punishing it.
