Eradicating violence against women (from engagingmen, by Bhawana Upadhyay and Raymond Brandes)

The whole episode of the Delhi gang-rape of 23-year old paramedical student inside a running bus in New Delhi, India, towards the end of 2012, has something profound to offer not only to the general public, but also to professionals, practitioners and right activists across the board.

However, it seems that perpetuators are not even slightly threatened by the outcry of a huge Indian public mass and prominent persons’ promises to act tough to crack down on the sexual assaults and heinous crime like rape.  Take for instance, the gang-rape of a woman in Punjab (also India), which happened when the streets of Delhi were still burning with demands for the death penalty to the perpetrators of the Delhi gang-rape case.
