Abstract:
India is facing a gender problem. The World Economic Forum recently ranked India 108 out of 144 on the Global Gender Gap Index, a multidisciplinary benchmarking framework that measures political, social, economic, and health-based disparities; in 2011, the UN ranked India 132 out of 187 in its Human Development Report. The Thomson Reuters Foundation recently dubbed India the most dangerous country for women, ahead of Afghanistan and Syria. India ranks 169 in terms of women's life expectancy, and 38 out of 51 in terms of women's literacy in developing countries. Political discourse is dominated by episodes of gendered and sexual violence, from the Nirbhaya Rape case in 2012 to the Assifa tragedy in 2018. It's much harder to understand - and talk about - the underlying causes of such dramatic disparity.
