    ^ That's so sad and I see someone posted she just died. Sadly, I just don't see justice for her though.

    Or for the thousands of women and girls who have suffered the same or similiar fate as this lady.

    This is one of the top things that greatly pisses me off about world society so my contribution is to raise my own two boys the best I can to respect all females. In fact, to respect EVERYONE.
    All I can ask of anyone... will you too?

    I know I've mentioned it before, but my brother is married to one of three Indian sisters. Their parents doted on them, and two became physicians, and the third an electrical engineer. All of them, however, left India and are married to non-Indian men (one American, one German, and one Malaysian). However, they are Catholics -- maybe they don't follow the social conventions that other Indians do? I'm not sure. Their dad went to university in Britain, so maybe he got a different perspective on male-female relationships when he was there.

    An Indian medical student whose gang rape triggered mass protests has died in a Singapore hospital.

    SINGAPORE — A young Indian woman who was gang-raped and severely beaten on a bus in New Delhi died Saturday at a Singapore hospital, after her horrific ordeal galvanized Indians to demand greater protection from sexual violence that impacts thousands of women daily, in homes, streets and public transport, but which often goes unreported.
    She "passed away peacefully" with her family and officials of the Indian embassy by her side," said Dr. Kevin Loh, the chief executive of Mount Elizabeth hospital, where she had been treated since Thursday. "The Mount Elizabeth Hospital team of doctors, nurses and staff join her family in mourning her loss," he said in a statement.
    He said the woman had remained in an extremely critical condition since Thursday, when she was flown to Singapore from India. "Despite all efforts by a team of eight specialists in Mount Elizabeth Hospital to keep her stable, her condition continued to deteriorate over these two days. She had suffered from severe organ failure following serious injuries to her body and brain. She was courageous in fighting for her life for so long against the odds but the trauma to her body was too severe for her to overcome."
    The woman and a male friend, who have not been identified, were traveling in a public bus after watching a film on the evening of Dec. 16 when they were attacked by six men who took turns to rape her. They also beat the couple and inserted an iron rod into her body resulting in severe organ damage. Both of them were then stripped and thrown off the bus, according to police.
    The frightening nature of the crime shocked Indians, who have come out in their thousands for almost daily demonstrations, demanding stronger protection for women and death penalty for rape, which is now punishable by a maximum life imprisonment. But the tragedy has also forced India to confront the reality that sexually assaulted women are often blamed for the crime, which forces them to keep quiet and not report it to authorities for fear of exposing their families to ridicule. Also, police often refuse to accept complaints from those who are courageous enough to report the rapes and the rare prosecutions that reach courts drag on for years.
    After 10 days at a New Delhi hospital, the victim was brought to the Mount Elizabeth hospital, which specializes in multi-organ transplant. But by late Friday, the young woman's condition had "taken a turn for the worse" and her vital signs had deteriorated with indications of severe organ failure, said Loh.
    She had earlier suffered a heart attack, a lung and abdominal infection and "significant" brain injury, according to the hospital.
    Police have arrested six people in connection with the attack.

    RIP. This is just too sick and really pisses me off. If I start writing about this issue I don't think I'll stop....

    Mohandas- I think I remember saying this when you mentioned that before about your brother - my sister-in-law and her two sisters are (British) Indian Muslims but they've all married white men. None of them wanted anything to do with Indian guys and their mother was happy about that(!) The dad, hmm not so much, but he didn't react as badly as they expected.

    Damn! I'm usually anti-gun and anti-death penalty but I wish she would've had a gun and shot these losers when they approached her but since she didn't - I'd love to see these guys hang for what they did to her. Anyone who can do this to another person just needs to leave our planet as soon as possible.

    Women endure more abuse than any other group, regardless of their race or religion. Patriarchal societies are ruining women and I fucking hate them all.

    Yes I do talk to my son about treating females with respect. He has seen me degraded and disrespected by someone who should know better and it really bothers him. I hope as he grows older he will continue to value females.

    These fucked up countries that allow this shit, I don't get it and never will.

    Just like the so-called honor killings in those other fucked up countries. How do women stand a chance there? Why would any woman live there? I guess lots of them would love to leave but can't.

    ^ Yep, 'honor' killings happen in India, and way too many other countries too.
    Most of these poor women don't have any way of escaping, I'm sure a lot would if they could.

    Candles lit for Delhi rape victim






    December 29, 2012 11:30 AM


    The woman's ordeal has provoked an outpouring of grief and anger






    Candlelit vigils have been held across India to mourn a woman who has died after being gang-raped in Delhi.


    Thousands of people gathered in the Indian capital to express their grief and demand justice for the 23-year-old victim, who died earlier on Saturday.


    Six men arrested in connection with the 16 December attack have now been charged with murder.


    The victim's body is being flown back home from Singapore, where she had been taken for specialist treatment.


    The rape triggered violent public protests over attitudes towards women in India.


    Large areas of Delhi were sealed off and hundreds of armed police and riot troops deployed as news of the victim's death spread.


    During Saturday, large crowds people gathered at sites where public gatherings were allowed.


    These included the city's Jantar Mantar observatory, where people lit candles in the woman's memory.


    "We are aware that this is not the first case, nor will it be the last case of gang-rape in India, but it is clear that we will not tolerate sex crimes any more," Rana, a lawyer, told the AFP news agency.


    The victim's coffin, draped in a white flag, was taken to Singapore's Changi airport to be flown home, accompanied by her parents who were at her bedside when she died.


    Over the past two weeks, the unnamed woman has became a symbol of the wider issue of how women are treated in India, says the BBC's Sanjoy Majumder in Delhi.


    The Mount Elizabeth hospital in Singapore said the woman "passed away peacefully" early on Saturday.


    Hospital chief executive Kelvin Loh said she had suffered severe organ failure following serious injuries to her body and brain.


    India's Home Affairs minister, Ratanjit Pratap Narain Singh, said he was "heartbroken" by her death.


    "I can only assure the family that the government will take whatever steps are needed to ensure that her killers get the harshest punishment in the quickest of time," he said.


    Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said he was "very saddened" by the woman's death, and that the angry public reaction was "perfectly understandable".


    He called on politicians and the public to set aside "narrow sectional interest" and work together to make India "a demonstrably better and safer place for women to live in".


    Death penalty


    The woman - a medical student whose identity has not been released - and her friend had been to see a film when they boarded the bus in the Munirka area of Delhi, intending to travel to Dwarka in the south-west of the city.


    Police said she was raped for nearly an hour, and both she and her companion were beaten with iron bars, then thrown out of the moving bus into the street.


    The assault sparked angry protests about the general conditions for women in India, and about what is seen as an inadequate police response to rape allegations.


    Officials have since announced a series of measures intended to make Delhi safer for women.


    These include more police night patrols, checks on bus drivers and their assistants, and the banning of buses with tinted windows or curtains.


    The government has also said that it will post the photos, names and addresses of convicted rapists on official websites to shame them.


    It has set up two committees - one looking into speeding up trials of cases involving sexual assaults on women, and the other to examine the lapses that might have led to the incident in Delhi.


    But the protesters say the government's pledge to seek life sentences for the attackers is not enough - many are calling for the death penalty.

    Good, the rapists are being charged with murder.


    India files murder charges against suspects in brutal gang rape - CNN.com

    New Delhi (CNN) -- Indian authorities added murder charges Saturday for suspects in the brutal gang rape that led to the death of a 23-year-old woman and sent outraged protesters to the streets.

    The suspects already faced rape charges.
    Six people, including a minor and a bus driver, have been arrested in connection with the rape that occurred in New Delhi this month.
    Throngs of people have protested for days, demanding more protection for women and punishment for those behind the assault.
    Fearing massive protests following the death, police tightened security in the capital and barricaded some sites of previous rallies.
    Authorities said demonstrations are only allowed at Jantar Mantar observatory and the Ram Lila grounds.
    Police banned protests in Raisina Hills and closed roads leading to the area, fearing a possible repeat of the furious, large-scale demonstrations that occurred last weekend. Ten metro stations also were ordered closed, authorities said.
    The woman was airlifted to Singapore earlier this week after she was treated for injuries in a New Delhi hospital.
    Singapore doctors said she died "peacefully" early Saturday, surrounded by her family and Indian embassy officials. A medical team is conducting an autopsy.
    The woman had been in "extremely critical condition" since her arrival Thursday and took a turn for the worse, said Dr. Kelvin Loh, chief executive officer at Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
    "She had suffered from severe organ failure following serious injuries to her body and brain," Loh said. "She was courageous in fighting for her life for so long against the odds, but the trauma to her body was too severe for her to overcome."
    The U.S. Embassy in New Delhi expressed its condolences Saturday.
    "As we honor the memory of this brave young woman, we also recommit ourselves to changing attitudes and ending all forms of gender-based violence, which plagues every country in the world."
    Authorities have not released the name of the woman, but Indian protesters are calling her Damini, which means "lightning" in Hindi.
    "Damini" is also a 1993 Bollywood film whose lead female character fights for a housemaid, a victim of sexual assault.
    The Times of India calls her Nirbhaya, which means "fearless."
    Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, wrote on Twitter, "To our friends in India: we share your outrage over an act of unimaginable cruelty against one of our sisters. RIP Nirbhaya."
    India's ambassador to Singapore said the victim's relatives, who are Hindus and live in New Delhi, have asked for privacy.
    Attackers assaulted the woman and her male companion on a bus December 16, robbing them of their belongings before dumping them at the side of a road, police said.
    The male companion was eventually discharged from a hospital.
    Last week, police said the woman recovered enough to give a statement to a magistrate from her hospital bed. But Sunday, she had more surgery to wash out infection in her abdomen, her doctors said.
    The death spurred an outpouring of sadness and calls for action to ensure change and punishment of her rapists.
    Prime Minister Manmohan Singh offered his "deepest condolences."
    "We have already seen the emotions and energies this incident has generated," he said, referring to the widespread protests. "It would be a true homage to her memory if we are able to channel ... these emotions and energies into a constructive course of action."
    Reported rape cases in India -- where a cultural stigma keeps many victims from reporting the crime -- have increased drastically over the past four decades, from 2,487 in 1971 to 24,206 in 2011, according to official figures.
    New Delhi alone had 572 rapes reported last year and more than 600 in 2012.
    One such recent case involved a 17-year-old girl who said she was gang-raped during the Hindu festival of Diwali on November 13. A formal case wasn't registered by police until 14 days later.
    The girl committed suicide Wednesday by ingesting poison, according to authorities in the Patiala district of Punjab, in northern India.
    In her suicide note, she blamed her alleged rapists. Three suspects -- including a female accomplice -- have been arrested.
    Most women in India have stories of sexual harassment and abuse on public transportation, on the streets and elsewhere, said Seema Sirohi of the Indian Council on Global Relations.
    "There are a lot of reasons why this happens, but the patriarchal system is one, a lack of policing is another and general treatment of women is not equal to men, even though it may be so under the law," Sirohi said.
    Human Rights Watch said the gang rape highlights the widespread problem of sexual violence in India.
    "The government needs to act now to prevent sexual assault, aggressively investigate and prosecute perpetrators, and ensure the dignified treatment of survivors," said Meenakshi Ganguly, South Asia director for the organization.
    The Indian government announced plans Thursday to "name and shame" convicted rapists by posting their names, images and addresses on official websites, according to the Times of India.
    And the Cabinet plans to set up a commission to look into rape cases and suggest measures to improve women's safety. This group has three months to submit its report to the government.

    Maybe I have missed this, but what about the bus driver? How did he/she not know about this assault, and if they did, why did they not do anything? Is that not a crime as well?
