Renowned Indian journalist Barkha Dutt, filmmaker Leslee Udwin, and Norah O’Donnell of CBS took part in a discussion over rape culture during a panel at the Women in the World summit in New York City. During the talk, Norah says that India is unsafe for women.
Barkha, who has been in favour of broadcasting India’s Daughter in India took strong objection on Norah’s statement and proved her wrong giving statics about crimes against women. Barkha defended India, saying United States and United Kingdom register more violence against women than India.
Barkha also mentions that India have had a woman Prime Minister four decades ago while the United States has started electing women recently.
This is always ignored by media that women in western countries witness more violence than in India. Whenever any rape case is reported in our country, media makes unnecessary hullabaloo and defames India.
