    I have also heard about this issue and have been following the story; it’s so painful and tragic to hear of such news during current times.

    Yes, recently I have heard about these cases in India. You’re right feminist movement should continue to grow to prevent these cases from happening again.

    I have never heard about the Jaipur Literature Festival, however I do realize that issues of sexual harassment is going on in other countries. Women are de-valued more in other countries than compared to the United States. We as women in this county should be thankful to have opportunities that other women in other countries don’t have the luxury of dreaming.
