I hosted a Chinese couchsurfer last year. She worked for a humanitarian organisation in India. She told me, that nowhere in the world she felt more unsafe as a woman than in India. Actually, what one reads in the news is just the tip of the iceberg and females are told to be very careful in some cities and places, and should always be accompaigned by men. Sad to hear that from India, but as some commenters already explained, why the situations worsened - it's unlikely to get better, due to demographics. social behaviour and views.
