There has been much protest against the continuing attacks on women in parts of Karnataka by right-wing fringe groups.  Women have chosen different ways to protest, including the sassy Pink Chaddi Campaign.  When probed, I was disappointed but not surprised that some who contributed to the campaign were of the view that women are responsible for the violence against them.  The contributors were in fact, unaware of this contradiction in their views.  What saddens me is that these are educated women who choose not to educate themselves on issues that concern them and thus buy into the fallacies that justify abusive behaviour.
