After the infamous Nirbhaya gang rape case made shocking headlines all over the world, one would expect people becoming more sensitised towards women’s safety in the country. But sadly such progressiveness is just a distant dream for now.

The team of Bol Public Bol asked men and women on the streets of Mumbai a simple question – what makes men rape – and were shocked by their responses. Not one person among those who were interviewed said that they believed it was the rapist who was completely at fault. They actually blamed the women for dressing up ‘inappropriately’ and giving the ‘wrong’ signals to men.

 

Tragically, the video ends by saying that around 80 per cent of Indians believe that women invite rape and are responsible for any violence directed towards them. This surely raises some disturbing questions about where are we heading towards as a society.
