    Dear Kotravai, Thank you for sharing this horrible story. Don't you think people should get involved to help others receive their human rights? I'm aware about the caste but can't by-standers at least help the injured woman? I'm all in favor of eliminating the outdated caste system, so people can unite.

    On the one hand thank you for sharing this story; On the other hand I do not know what to do to help. I don't have to say somebody should do something. You already know that. My problem is I feel the pain but do not know what to do.

    Kotravai,

    This is another example of the disrespect men have towards women. Worse, so many times it seems that women are not considered human beings. It is seriously sad to realize that after so many decades of advocacy, of UN bills and resolutions the reality of women around the world has not changed. Nevertheless, we should keep on fighting for our rights. Let me know how I can help and how World Pulse can help because any one cause is all women's cause.

    Thank you for standing up and informing us.

    Hi Kadidia,

    Even I do not know how to help. Each and every day hundreds of crimes are committed against women, as a single person running MASES I try and expose the violence I hear of & try to organize some protests, petitions etc at my level.

    Is there any training program world pulse can offer on reporting & training on effective blogging etc.,
