The article is great and spot on. The comments section is even more interesting where some people, very rightfully, look into the mirror of our own westen society too.
As deeply as I am shocked by what happened, I am also very aware that the attitudes here are not in line with equality either. US elections for instance but also Julia Gillard finally standing up in Parliament. Really many of our elected politicians are only slightly better than those in India when it comes to violence to women.
