In the same week, another 10-year-old from the same region was repeatedly raped by her stepfather and now five months pregnant. May 14 (Ironically Mother’s Day), a girl from Sikkim living in a hostel in Delhi was forced late at night in a car and a raped by several men on the same day another girl was kidnapped by going At his school to collect his certificates, was rescued from a farm in Meerut, where he was forcibly detained and raped repeatedly.

What happens here, you ask. What do we have this crisis in sex crimes against women and even girls of about two months? Why, despite the strengthening of our archaic laws on rape, it took nearly five years for the Indian Supreme Court to uphold the death sentence for the violators and murderers Jyoti Singh, including a child while still in custody Must understand here how fundamental sex is the basic concept of gender in Indian society. And in a semi-feudal society and gender like ours, sexuality remains central in everything (houses, schools and cinemas in Parliament) to define men and women.
