Rape is one of the hardest things to convict people of due to the archaic rape laws that plague the world. The fact that these men got convicted in India is at least a start. As long as they keep convicting the guilty and bring rape awareness to the forefront then we should be on the right track.
India has long discriminated against women that have been the victims of violent crimes and sexual assaults. Many times, the victims have even been blamed for the crimes committed against them. The Indian Government can no longer find this acceptable and must do everything in its power to better protect women from violence. Also, the Indian society must recognize that violence against women is wrong.
There is a history of violence against women in India that is woven in the cultural fabric. The recent attach and rape of a Danish tourist is only one example of how the Indian government is slow to improvement protection for women. The series of violence includes dowry deaths, honor crimes, forced marriages as well as rape. It is essential for women to be protected in order to be independent and succeed in the country of India.
No, it is not possible for any government to do too much to protect women from violence. Sadly, situations like these are far too common in India, and in the world at large. It is necessary for the government of India to dismantle the societal norms that perpetuate such incidents, and for the rest of the world to firmly express that this is not okay to take place.
