Another Gang Rape in India :/

After the gang-rape of a 23 year old student on a bus in Delhi 3 month ago, a Swiss woman, aged 39 years old has been gang raped in a the state of Madhya Pradesh last Friday!
The woman, along with her husband, were camping overnight at a village when they were attacked by 8-10 men! The aggressors got the over hand on the husband before sexually assailing the woman... :/ To top it off, the assailants even stole the valuables stuffs the couple had on them! 
Is India a safe place for women?
Accodring to TrustLaw, India has been ranked as the worst G20 country in which to be a woman! Crimes related to raping is on the growth, with a rise of 9.2% over the previous year. Not to mention the several kidnapping cases or murder over the dowry payments, torture, woman trafficking...
"Female foetuses are aborted and baby girls killed after birth, leading to an appallingly skewed sex ratio. Many of those who survive face discrimination, prejudice, violence and neglect all their lives, as single or married women."
It was only last week that we celebrated International Women's Day, but don't you think that women are being disrespected, sexually discriminated? Not only in India, but all around the world?

Maybe we've built highways, huge buildings but our minds are becoming narrower and more perverted! Families are breaking, values are being jeopardized... We may be gaining more and more knowledge, but at the expense of possessing Wisdom!
