Uncommon Ground – Mind The Gender Gap
Not only does violence against women continue in the old brutality, it is taking new bewildering forms.
Twenty-five years ago, I used to volunteer with Vimochana, a women’s group that focuses on violence against women. At that time in Bangalore, dowry deaths were particularly disturbing, and much work was being done to raise awareness about the issue. On a day when papers reported five cases of unnatural deaths of women in the city, I had cccasion to catch up with Vimochana’s indefatigable Donna and Madhu again.
