The Gender Ratio

The Gender Ratio

Column: Bimbos, ‘bottom girls’ and the ugly reality of misogyny in our justice system

When a child is killed in a road traffic accident it is an awful thing. But when a mother has to wait for days to access the funeral arrangements it is an even more awful thing. What is even more tragic is that there is no redress for any of the injustice that can be found in any law.

Every day, on average, more than four Indian women die in road accidents, while more than a lakh go missing on the roads. The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) has shown that women are five times more likely than men to be killed on roads (55 per cent versus 21 per cent).

The NCRB has also demonstrated that a woman’s accident rate is twice that of the man’s.

According to the NCRB, a woman is four times more likely to be killed in a road accident than a man is.

The death and injury toll is just one of the many issues that is plaguing India. The other is the gender ratio which is a very important indicator of gender equality.

What’s the problem with the gender ratio? Is it that women are getting a better life than their male counterparts? Is the gender ratio the only factor in creating a gender-biased judicial system?

While it is true that India has made significant progress in gender equality, the problem is not just in a one-dimensional sense. There are thousands of women living in India who face issues that are not addressed in any law.

The lack of women in all the fields is another huge problem.

For example, in the medical profession, the representation of women is less than 1 per cent. Similarly, the representation of women in the engineering profession is just 1.6 per cent. The representation of women in every other field like commerce, engineering, business sector is 1.2 per cent or even less.
