Our modern societies still need feminism
I think the women know about it. A section of women might fear using them. These crimes going unreported is a problem everywhere. Rampant misuse of law means, that women use these laws to harass people, put charges of sexual harassment, and by the time the person gets justice, he's already been harassed a lot. About foreigners, I wouldnt know, dont have enough knowledge on the topic. You being one, are in a better place to answer that. But i'd suppose an fir and reporting it to the news channels will bring light upon the issue. Childbrides are another question. There are laws against it. Its simply a matter of reporting. Same with honour killing. They are looked down upon. And courts are very harsh on the perpetrators. Any such matter reported is certainly taken up by society at large.

Well the rape, sexual harassment laws etc are extremely in favour of women, and its a know fact. There are non bailable crimes. There is rampant mis use of these laws by women in so many ways. Giving you a balanced perspective not a skewed one. I know the rapes still happen and women are harassed and oppressed, but the laws are no where near fair.

Feminism will always be needed. In countries like India the laws are in extreme favour of women. What the movement needs is that women assert them selves and come forward instead of just nodding and going abck to the same stuff thats being going on since years. I frankly believe a woman is a woman's worst enemy. And they need to instil compassion for their own kind. For example when female infanticide occurs a woman is clearly as involved as the male partner.

Why don't we use technology to have a real Direct Democracy?
Actually when you see it this way, all we need is a Voting app for your country on Facebook. Its as simple as that, if you want to make it simple and participative. But when the question of reliability comes, would you trust facebook? Now if you dont trust facebook, whic evidently is the biggest social networking site, how do you trust a state owned portal for voting? You make one and suddenly you'l have the chinese (pardon me pointing fingers :P) hackers hacking and suddenly you'l have Sarah Palin for president, now how disastrous is that? :P My sad humour aside, i hope you get the point that just having the resources doesnt make it worth using them. When its a nation's future at stake, reliability and security and reach are way more important.
