I was absolutely sickened to read the tragic story about the 23 year old victim of gang rape in India, who has subsequently died due to the severity of her injuries. 

Violent abuse of women and girls is rampant everywhere, and everyone needs to face up to this.

Every government in every country around the world must bring this fact out into the open, and do whatever it takes to ensure that women are defended and protected and empowered.

I can only hope that this unspeakable crime will catalyse those in power to take action for change.

The long term question has to be…How can this aberrant behaviour be prevented?
