Syed Saad Andaleeb in his piece “Violence against women: Whither law enforcers?”, published by this paper recently, talked about how women have to endure violence and harassment on a daily basis. It's important that we raise our voice against such violence. Women have the right to live without fears or prejudices and do whatever they want. Our largely male dominated society should change how it views women, who should be made aware of their rights.
Most importantly, the authorities concerned should be made accountable. It is their lack of accountability that is to blame for the current situation.
