Is there a state left in India that can vouch for women's safety? Afraid not

Recently, a woman's body was found in a well in Rajasthan after she was abducted and attacked with acid. It was reported that the 18-year-old was subjected to gruesome torture. The accused is still on the run.

This week alone, there were multiple incidents of rape reported from across the country. From small girls to teenagers, several females were subjected to molestation and rape. Cases of rape have become so common that it puts the country to shame. At a time when we're rooting for women leaders across fields, encouraging more young girls to succeed and live freely, to see half the population navigating life amidst fear every day, fearing for their safety is not just unfortunate but also frustrating. There isn't a place left in India where girls can walk freely; they're either eve-teased or abducted. The question remains - how will we encourage our girls to succeed if the foremost challenge they have to deal with is their own safety?
