    It’s unfortunate that a young woman had to die in order to bring much needed attention to sexual violence against women in India. I hope that elected representatives follow through on their promises to prosecute the offenders, and make sincere efforts to prevent future attacks.

    It sounds like there are several problems going on. Perhaps the most critical is a lack of enforcement of laws that already exist, which would lead to the prosecution of more men who carry out these attacks.

    Another could be a culture of complicity, whereby people are so used to this happening, and living with the consequences of this oppressive brutality, they accept the behavior and attitudes, adapt accordingly, and go about their daily lives this way.

    I hope India does not miss this chance for true change.
