Why isn’t ensuring women’s safety our top priority, yet? With t he lens firmly focused on India, the harsh inequality between the sexes is in the spotlight, once again.

So, when a video like this surfaces, it serves to remind us that we still have a very long way to go. In Ahmedabad, a woman driver was ‘punished’ for a minor accident. Reported by NDTV , the story describes how abuses were hurled at her, after which an Innova was repeatedly rammed into her car, by two men. Purposely. Vengefully.

Brute force was used to bully this woman driver. Why? Just because these men could. Despite police presence and throngs of people at the accident site, no one intervened.

We can’t help but wonder – would these men have strong-armed a male driver, as well?
