In India, boys at a young age are taught to view girls as weak, inferior - and worst of all - as sex objects. This training is hardwired in the thinking of most families, and is propagated by the older males. The only way to change boys' minds is in school. Why can't each school have gender sensitisation classes, starting from Class III? Teach them that girls and boys are equal. Teach them to respect girls. Teach them that boys who harass girls are actually the weakest boys, as they can't pick somebody their own size. Simultaneously, teach the girl students that they are equal to boys, they are strong and worthy of respect. Teach them to become independent, especially economically. The content of these classes must change as the children grow older, gradually introducing them to issues of sexual abuse and rape. This must involve sex education as well. I can expect resistance to this idea from the parents, but surely it can be overcome.
