Sounds familiar to the Nirbhaya rape case happened in 2012? but this is even worse. The woman’s ex-husband, along with two others, treated her this way. Women’s safety is still a huge struggle for this nation. There are many precautions, advice, suggestions, warnings, whatever else you might want to call it, given to women. Not to go out late at night, not to go out alone, not to wear revealing clothes, not to sit in an indecent manner, and the list is never-ending. How about, for a change, trying to educate men about respecting and not raping women?
