India don become safe for women?

One short answer to di question na No.

Dis na because despite di scrutiny of crimes against women since December 2012, similar crime still dey happened for India.

And statistic only dey tok about one part of di tori—pipo wey dey campaign say pipo no dey even report case of rape to police.

I sabi women wey don suffer rape but no report am for police because dem dey ashame, and because of shame wey pipo associate with di crime, or dem dey fear say dem no go believe dem.

Some pipo say strict punishment, wey dem deliver fast, go make pipo fear di law and run from to dey rape but experts say di permanent solution na to scatter patriarchal thinkin, di mindset wey regard woman as man property.

But before that one happen, how women and girls go dey safe for India?
