Do you think safety of women can be guaranteed by tighter regulations or by insight?

guys, My motherland, India has recently seen a surge in antisocial activities against women (rape mostly), Our government and more so its citizens demand stricter laws to punish the offenders. Do you think that this will really help?? Like me, do you think its the mindset of the people that has to be changed entirely???

  • Jun 30 2013: Changing the mindset is a very hypothetical point because you cant do it until that person is ready for a change. In that case, yes we have to build an environment which forces him to do so like bringing tighter regulations but with ways of faster execution of the Law, changing the ways in which women are treated/shown in things that we see in our daily lives like movies, politics etc.
