He also shared an experience of his own. She said that when she was 14 years old, the conductor pushed her, after which she gave a befitting reply to the conductor. Sadhvi said that women should have the courage to speak and fight against violence.

This is what the NCRB report says
According to the NCRB report, in the year 2021, 31677 cases of rape were reported. About 32 percent of married women in rural India and about 29 percent of women in the rest of the country suffered from this type of violence during 2019-21. This sequence continues continuously. Among these, about 77 percent women living in rural India do not seek any legal help for the attacks on them, do not register any kind of case. Most women and men in the country consider gender-based violence to be okay. For example, if a husband beats his wife for going out without permission or for not cooking food on time, then it is considered justified. According to the data of the ministry, there was an increase in violence against women during the Kovid period.
