Dear supreme ji,
no place in d world is better for women. be sure abt it.either east or west they have been on d receiving end only.Indian books n culture even show some respect n grace for women but others,forget it.Though we forget our culture n are running towards d beliefs of west.Let me tell U one thing.I just dont believe or abide by this classification of east or west.In 21st cent n after d start of globalisation,it has become a hybrid n cross breed society.Mess up of d western as well as eastern ideas.N der is nethin wrong in it.Only that idea is better which gives ample opportunity n justice to every person without any discrimination.

Now coming back to ur question,Do u know which country holds d record of max no of rape cases everyday,child molestations everyday,yes d dream country of indians,USA.No place in d world is safe for women.Its all abt marketing women everywhere n men are d master of this market.So women are just like a commodity here.
But if U'll ask this que ...more

Yes, women were more respected in india than any other country in this world. As we know, in West women were respected by enforcement of law. But people cannot change their attitude with law......it sh come with

1. dignity,
2. eager to take responsibility
3. method of upbringing..

Now the scenereo has changed.....

Who changed this ?? Yes, a man, a boy, a father, a father-in-law, a mother-in-law, a mother, a mother-in-law, a sister-in-law .........every human being in our surroundings are responsible for that..... EVEN A GIRL/WOMAN is responsible for that.

This disrespect does not come with GEOGRAPHYCAL REGION, COUNTRY.


We should find the ROOT CAUSE.....

This disrespect comes with attitude, way at looking into things, outlook of human being...

Tell me....How a school girl or a college a wear a vulgar dress and move around us ?? Yes, the answer is..."BECAUSE THEIR PARENTS WANTS TO SEE THEIR CHILD IN THAT VULGAR dress -- so the root cause here is a FATHE ...more

Yes. Still after so much of attrocacies we Indian see women as any form of love, mother, wife, sister , lover or daughter. But when you see the record of west they are the one who has exploited the women most by giving them more rights so called. They sex freely,sees no immoral and even the fathers do with their duaghters. And they they can make sexual move to any women of anyage just in the name of consent. Here in India we have given more rights to women that westners but still they cry that we are violating the HRs.

In western countries men and women hv same status and they respect one another in the same level.
Whereas in india the social status between men and eomen vary and in many cases more respect is paid to men due to reasons arising out of superstitions.

Women are not deified in the west and neither are they glorified. They are accepted as equal citizens of their society..and period. They are regarded as individuals as are the men.. and they have full freedom over their lives.. no husband dare dictate terms to them.
In India we are glorified and worshipped on one hand and on the other hand societal prejudices and a rigidly patriarchal society have made sure that she is always within a boundary, always covered with some invisible purdah.

the survey says that only 30% of women in india are.........respected.
.
women ..........even in foriegn lands are not upto mark in regards of respect.
we respect the westren women more not because of thier any ability but because of the attraction towards them...............and ATTRACTION IS NOT AT ALL A RESPECT,
