A 23 year old medical student was brutally beaten, gang raped and thrown from a bus in New Delhi, India. Can cultivating kindness in kids, and nurturing it in adults, be one part of the answer for ending violence and cruelty?

That young woman died as a result of her injuries and her death has inspired protests in India and a great deal of worldwide attention on the state of affairs for women, not just in India, but in many other countries as well.

I believe that these things can help in part. I think that there is also a cultural attitude that has to be addressed, perhaps with education and media attention.

I came upon a petition that is being made to the Government of India, the Verma Commission, and the Mehra Commission to call on them to urgently strengthen sexual violence legislation and enforcement, and to launch a massive public education program with hard-hitting and high quality content designed to bring about a profound shift in the shameful attitudes that permit and promote violence against women.

They are working to raise 1,000,000 signatures from all over the world. As I make this post, they have nearly 883,000 signatures pretty much from every country in the entire world. May I suggest adding your voice to this petition, as it may serve to encourage the government and the commissions to act far more energetically than they might otherwise do.

Hi Sharlee,

Thanks for sharing the link. You're right, it isn't enough to know what happened to this young woman and simply feel sorry. We must do what we can to make sure it does not happen again. It is time for violence against women to stop.

Thank you for sharing this info. Cultural attitudes can change for the better...if India can, then Iran and other countries may follow and the value of a human life-a woman's life!-should not continue to diminish.
