After the horrific attack on the 23 year old woman on a bus in India the extent of rape culture in India has come to light. Many stories of fear, pain, submission, and shame have come from this and protests across India has been met with contempt and violence. Australia needs to send a message that neither its government nor its people will stand by while women are subjected to such behaviour unchecked. "Being too big of a job" is not a reason to allow young girls, wives and elderly women to be treated as second class citizens or as objects for the gratification for half of the population. We are asking the Australian Government to take a stand and send a message that this is not tolerable behavior. The culture must change.
