Media and Internet are largely responsible for crimes against women.TV and films show so many scantily clad women and display so many crimes taking place against women like rape, etc. in such a manner that the passions of their semi-literate and uncultured viewers are likely to get heightened and they feel tempted to commit various crimes against women.
Advertising media again puts up boards and hoardings which leave little to imagination to what lies in a woman's body. Then there is the internet which leaves the media far behind in not only showing the body of the woman but the hardcore acts also which it does. There is, thus, a lot of yellow journalism and blue films.
Prostitutes fulfil the desire of the men and leave them satisfied but these TV and film actresses and models inflame the passions of men so that the latter resort to all sorts of crimes against women.
Of course, the remedy does not lie in banning TV or films or newspapers or advertisements for that would be counter-productive as it would increase the making of the films clandestinely and raise the curiosity of the viewers. Only self restraint and voluntary censorship by the media and internet is the desired solution as well as legalisation of the prostitution.
