The perception that women are the weaker sex and hence you can do what you want will disappear when there is punishment. This is two-fold, one the stereotype which allows him to prey on women needs to break and for that women have to rise to meet the potential they are capable of. The other is a strong legislative framework that imposes strict punishment within the confines of a short, yet fair trial. The latter is not possible because of the shortage of resources in the country, but the former is possible. If women can just trust themselves to undertake what we all know they are capable of, it would go a long way in deterring potential criminals from looking them in the wrong way.
