''Prevalence of deep-rooted misogyny in our society yet again gave us a reason to hang our heads in shame. The rigid patriarchy has blurred our vision with a misconception of culture that defies the acceptance of one gender at par with the other. This has directly given an upper hand to the dominant gender even in case of reprehensible crimes like rape, molestation and sexual assaults thus pushing the blame on the victim thus imbibing nothing but toxic in the society.In my opinion, geography in such cases is of no concern, yet the recent mass molestation on the eve of New Years in Bengaluru has immensely raged people and ignited genuine concerns towards the shallow mentality of, unfortunately, a majority who believe westernization is the crux of sexual crimes against women.
This country stepped in the New Year with an age old issue of misogyny, where social media became the channel to funnel the fury of the masses. Hashtags overpowered that cursed the corrupt mentality with supporting hashtags like #NoGirlEverAsksForIt, #LetHerBe #BengaluruShamefulIncident, and #StopVictimBlaming took over.
With opinions flooding in, the trend of #NotAllMen associated with this incident too received its share of deserved hatred which further emphasized on the persisting male hypocrisy and dominance in the society.
