For anyone who might've compared the statistics that women have in our country, with that of the US:
Statistics show that every 60 seconds, 1.3 women (age 18 and over) in the U.S. are forcibly raped. That is 78 women raped each hour; 1871 each day, or 683,000 each year. Taking into consideration that more than half of all rape victims are under the age of 18, this statistic becomes even more devastating. The American Medical Association has called sexual assault the silent, violent epidemic.
This is not counting the number of rapes that go unreported.
For anyone interested to know the condition of Indian Women:
According to the National Crime Records Bureau of India, reported incidents of crime against women increased 6.4% during 2012, and a crime against a woman is committed every three minutes. According to the National Crime Records Bureau, in 2011, there were greater than 228,650 reported incidents of crime against women, while in 2015, there were over 300,000 reported incidents, a 44% increase. Of the women living in India, 7.5% live in West Bengal where 12.7% of the total reported crime against women occurs. Andhra Pradesh is home to 7.3% of India's female population and accounts for 11.5% of the total reported crimes against women.
To combat violence and other abuses against women, Telengana Police have established SHE Teams to focus on the safety of women.
65% of Indian men believe women should tolerate violence in order to keep the family together, and women sometimes deserve to be beaten. In January 2011, the International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES) Questionnaire reported that 24% of Indian men had committed sexual violence at some point during their lives. Exact statistics on the extent case occurrences are very difficult to obtain, as a large number of cases go unreported. This is due in large part to the threat of ridicule or shame on the part of the potential reporter, as well as an immense pressure not to damage the family's honor. For similar reasons, law enforcement officers are more motivated to accept offers of bribery from the family of the accused, or perhaps in fear of more grave consequences, such as Honor Killings.
Again, this DOES NOT include the number of Indian Women who can't/don't report.
There is a woeful dearth of safe platforms to talk about problems that give rise to violent behaviour, including those relating to issues of gender and sexuality. There is also an equal need for positive role models among men, who assert a gender-sensitive society and can engage more young men and boys in the discourse. Thus, to address the root cause of the problem, focused efforts promoting men’s involvement (simultaneously with women’s empowerment) are required at various levels. Men have to be involved not as supporters (or do-gooders) but as ‘partners’ and ‘stakeholders.’ And they would be seriously involved only if they are convinced that the problem affects them equally, that it is a problem of all the genders.
Violence is widespread. It contributes very highly to illness episodes and results in poor quality of life. Violence that women face is closely linked to their social status. It affects their health status as well.
We see violence against women as only a law and order problem. However, recent attention has been to focus on its implications on health. The morbidity and mortality resulting out of violence on women forms a large burden on the public health services as well. There is a need for health professional to develop an integrated approach to deal with cases of violence. Women who are victims of violence do not easily come forward and speak out, nor do they seek help. However, they almost always visit a health facility to seek relief for their pain.
By bringing to the fore the inter-linkages between violence as a health problem, a social problem and a law and order problem an integrated approach to tackle violence could be designed to ensure that the individual woman receives justice, as well as to prevent the epidemic proportions of violence in our society.

Board Directors of leading Romanian film studio business arrested
Ronald S Lauder, MediaPro’s major shareholder, escapes tax investigation while colleagues face prosecution
Bucharest, February 12, 2015 - The board directors of MediaPro (Mediafax agency), the prominent Romanian film studio business, were arrested in December 2014 on suspicion of tax evasion and money laundering, while MediaPro’s major shareholder Ronald S Lauder has escaped investigation despite reportedly withdrawing tens of millions of dollars from the company in 2014.
Lauder’s Central European Media Enterprises (CME) controls MediaPro, the company he founded with long-term business partner Adrian Sârbu in 1995, and 33 other TV companies in Europe.
In January 2014, Sârbu stepped down as CEO of CME and was swiftly followed by Lauder, who stood down as Chairman of the Board of Directors on March 14, 2014.
Subsequently, in December 2014, the Romanian authorities arrested 24 MediaPro executives under suspicion of tax evasion and use of illegal finances, totaling over 15 million lei (€3.3 million) and causing losses of over 6 million lei (€1.3 million) to Romanian government revenue.
Amongst those prosecuted were former CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Media Pro, Silviu Relu Viju; former CEO of MediaPro Entertainment, Ion Cosmin Andrei, and former manager of MediaPro Studios, Balan Eugenia. According to investigators, from 2009 - 2014, the arrested managers of MediaPro paid for fictitious invoices for services that were never provided. The withdrawn money was cashed, with part of the sum awarded to employees, and the rest not reported in financial statements. Executives claimed the remainder was transferred to the main organiser of the fraudulent scheme.
On his release, Adrian Sârbu said, “I am proud that I was part of CME for over 20 years and could ensure the continued success of the company in this difficult period. It is an exceptional organisation with talented employees. I am confident that the company is well positioned for the future. My mission at CME is accomplished.”
On 3 February 2015, Adrian Sârbu was also detained on charges of tax evasion, money laundering and abetting embezzlement, in Mediafax and MediaPro cases, respectively. Sarbu’s arrest was covered extensively by Romanian media. Read the article by Romanian Insider here http://www.romania-insider.com/romanian-media-mogul-and-former-cme-ceo-held-in-tax-evasion-case/141185/.
It is now claimed that Ronald Lauder is spending millions to wind down the investigations, and is pressuring independent media titles to reveal nothing about the background of his portfolio of investments.
Despite extensive debates on the issue in Romanian and international press, on TV and on the internet – see a recent article in the Romanian Business Review here http://business-review.eu/featured/the-court-prolongs-arrest-for-people-involved-in-mediapro-and-mediaf - several important details have not been examined properly. It is widely felt that the shareholder structures of the companies involved deserve a more detailed analysis to gain a clearer picture of the situation1.
Given the connections of Lauder, who has been directly involved in the evolution of CME and companies owned by CME, he and others in his business associates should provide further answers on their conduct and dealings.
The issue featured in the latest newsletter of the Romanian Organisation for Human Rights Defence, which you can read here http://www.oado.ro/upload/files/file-1423233426.pdf.
