It has been noticed recently that there has been a sudden increase in gender violence and no strict action is seen being taken against it. Harassment, rape, murders, kidnapping, human trafficking, everything that one can imagine is happening with some or the other female at some parts of the country. Gone are the days when people actually were as nice as they appeared to be and it is one of the biggest reason that #METoo Moment has started trending in India after being raised about in other countries.
