'There has to be a stronger deterrent'

Anguished Voices

“It’s impossible to move around without a male family member and that is just a sad state of affairs. Going out, even if for shopping for groceries, is becoming like a liability. Even when I travel with my husband, people will gaze at me continuously.”

Paridhi Tiwari,
Financial Analyst

“According to me, the situation in Delhi has definitely improved especially with a strong government at the Centre. I think our new Prime Minister will definitely take steps to ensure security for women but women themselves also have to be more vigilant.”

Govinti Tiwari,
Homemaker


“There is absolutely no accountability. Police and the government are indifferent to the violence that women have to face on a daily basis. We have to take both care and action ourselves. Women should carry pepper spray at all times and should be more vocal about such things.”

“Radio taxis and cabs were considered to be relatively safer. After the Uber rape case, I don’t feel like taking a cab back home. Cab companies don’t even care to check the background of their employees. Women safety is not at all a priority for these companies.”

Sargam Marwaha, Lawyer


“There has to be a stronger deterrent for people who think they can get away after committing such horrendous crimes. I personally think there isn’t and that’s why you see women getting attacked in broad daylight. I am afraid of going to southern parts of Delhi.”

Shelly Mittal,
Interior Designer



“The women who belong to lower economic strata face violence of all kinds, except their cases are not highlighted as much. Several women who work as domestic helps keep telling us horrible stories about themselves and we can’t do anything about it.”

Rajni Nagar,
Beautician
