How can we make a significant dent in atrocities against women?In spite of so many checks and balances, with the city of New Delhi and in places like Ghaziabad, one does hear robberies and also atrocities against women. Delhi has the worst record in terms of safety of women.
Hundreds of articles have been written and so many actions taken. But nothing happens. When the robbers come, unfortunately, the hold the inmates of the house at gun point and do all the harm. The CCTV cameras can be of no use in such situations.
Why can't there be more of private patrolling by youth in such areas? The funding of such youth and training can be done through pooling of resources from each citizen of the area. These youth should be trained in all skills like karate, judo and so on and should be made to inform the police immediately as well as handle the robbers themselves.
A lot more community participation is becoming necessary.
What can indeed be done?
