A study has claimed that Delhi has the smallest percentage of working women as compared to cities like Bengaluru and Mumbai. Delhi's patriarchal attitude is being blamed for women not working in offices. Most seems to think that a woman's place is at home.

Is this backward attitude the reason why there are just 10.6% working women as against the 53.1% of men working in Delhi? And because there are so few women in the workplace, could that be the reason why women are soft targets for rape, sexual harassment and molestation? Isn't it time men start accepting the fact that women too have equal rights?
