Does a man guarantee a girl's safety?

Every weekend when I plan to go out for dinner or party in the night, I am advised that I should have at least one male friend along. Apparently, people around think that a girl is safe is she is with a man. Is that really the case? I don't think so.

Considering that so many rapes, eve-teasing and molestation cases have happened in the past even with the girl was with a guy, I highly doubt if a man can ensure a woman's safety. So what's the point in taking him along in the first place? Do you really think that being with a man guarantees that you would be safe?

A lone girl is generally a preferred choice for grooming by many men whereas if you are with a man it definitely reduces the number of men trying to be cosy with the girl.

Though it will not guarantee, atleast there is a known person who will inform immediately to the kith and kin/police, in case some unforeseen things happen. Further there is a witness.

EVERY ONE HAVE TO CHANGE THERE MIND, THE PERSON WHO IS GOING WITH YOU MAY BE DO THE THE SAME THING LIKE EVE TEASING AND OTHER NONSENSE THINGS WHEN HE IS ALONE OR WHEN HE SEES ANY GIRL ALONE. SO CHANGE YOUR THINKING.

Between a girl with a man and a girl alone, I would think predators would choose the lone girl

Going through the so many incidents happened in our country of late, It is better to keep away from certain things where there may be some element of risk. It is high time we teach our women folk how to take care of themselves. The government should wake up and bring very strict legislation which should act as a deterrent for mischief makers. The cases should not drag forever and there should not be any room for an appeal. One single court should have the final say.

Even five husbands, 98 brothers-in-law, king, royal family members and a hundred courtiers could not stop Duryodhana & Dushasana. I rest my case.

Agree, but all those were punished later.. But now a days, people are not being punished properly, hence is the issue

A male company also doesn't guarantee safety at all. The Delhi gang rape and Mumbai gang rape cases are the biggest proofs.

MIss deol no offence but you have to understand people who are asking you for male company just wish for your good and male company does not ensures safety but it might decrease the chances by a ten or fifteen percent , isnt it worth it then (ravi_jain_90@yahoo.com)

No one can give safety to one another as long criminals rome round everywhere leave alone women, even men are also not safe when it comes to their personal life and when it's so, how can men provide safety to women irrespective of ones wife / friend. In the fast changing time and life, nothing is sure and every thing is very un-predictable irrespective of a person HE / SHE keeps to themselves quite and not involving themselves in un-waranted things and matters. Eve teasing, Molestation and rape are on the rise and women's life are at stake as the law has become meaningless for the safety of people. Attending late night parties has become a fashion for every women and they venture out at hotels, pubs, night clubs etc. to entertain themselves by not realizing the consequence and after effect of it. safety lies at own self and not with any MEN.

You are right when you say men themselves are not safe in India. It is absolutely unfair to dump the burden of one's safety on the shoulders of someone else! Women need to be self-dependent and strong. Strength is more a psychological thing than physical. If women consider themselves strong then they can fight whoever they want. Most women panic and start running. And that really needs to stop.

You mean that women should stop going out at all. They don't have the right to even have fun in life?

You are mixing up 2 things together. You have a right to climb a tree but will you ever try until you know how to come down. You go to night parties nobody is stopping but plan how to come back late night and which way to follow so that you are safe. You only can help yourself no one else..

why mix right with safety. Every one has right to swim in a river. But safety need suggest that a person must be careful when going swimming.

There are no guarantees but if the guy is a meanie it gives you a potentially better change to escape a rapist than if u are with a girl..
