Really disappointed to hear your founder's comments about the news report on BBC about the worst places to be a woman. Her comments were simply defensive and deflectory and ignored the reality that it is impossible for a woman to safely walk down the street in India's capital after dark. It's sad because her comments amounted to finger pointing saying that, for example, India's sex ratio is better than China's. For sure, but Chinese women can walk around. Your founder mentioned that India is so diverse and that it's difficult to make sweeping statements, and this was the gist of why she tried to delegitimize the report. It's sad because her comments also mask the fact that not only is India diverse, but it competes with Brazil as the most unequal society. Look at the caste violence and discrimination meted out daily, the brunt of which falls on the bodies of women in India. This paper-thin pride is futile. Patriarchy rules most societies so none of us is clean, but the denial I heard in her comments on BBC were appalling and racist. I always love how many folks in India will deny any comparison to any African nation by taking offense. I lived in Delhi for over seven years and I am just fatigued of the implicit and unquestioned racism that is based on caste supremacy because we all know how Dalits are treated- like Habshis or worse.
