Brett’s fluidity within her own identity and sexuality confuses the men in the book, who are in love with her and are unfamiliar with the concept of a free, independent woman. This then, as mentioned above, evokes different reactions from the men. Cohn’s huge reaction was, of course, beating up the other men he was competing against to
It’s the epitome that Don Critobita has bought her and now can use her for whatever he likes, and Rosita has no clause to raise, no voice against her master and nowhere to go in that society. She is the pictogram of sacrifice, inner restlessness, slavery, and cruelty of the un-kind Spanish society that it inflicts upon the females. She has no voice of her own, and even if she tries to speak, her voice is subdued by the rules and customs of the society that doesn’t acknowledge such things. Rebellion of any kind against the master is unacceptable. The males are the makers of the fate of the females and they bend their fate to whatever path that suits them.
The Objectivist is not someone who uses other people to create their own success. A true Objectivist does not rely on other people. Therefore, Ellsworth Toohey is not an Objectivist, or an individual. He also fails at being an individual, because of the way he dealt with the problems of his life. Toohey was constantly ignored growing up, and he hated that, so he dealt with that by making sure he would never be ignored again, Toohey is just as much of a parasite as Peter, because “[He] create[‘s] nothing.
Violence can be committed by individuals or by the State as well as groups and organisations through their members and their policies. It results not only in fear of/ or actual injury but also in fundamental interference with personal freedom , and about six in 10 children, or one billion worldwide, face corporal punishment as a form of discipline by their caregivers, including parents.

In India Violence against children is a deep-rooted social problem. The problem is also related to economic as well as cultural beliefs and practices.
Prevalence of sexual violence differs across settings. Reasons may include how sexual violence is measured, the definitions used, the stigma and shame associated with the act, the extent to which disclosure of abuse and assault is encouraged and cultural beliefs and the role of women and children in society. Measuring prevalence is, however, important, hence global efforts to strengthen the tools and methodologies to do so. Data are lacking on the various forms of sexual violence, particularly in developing countries, making it difficult to develop appropriate responses and prevention programs. Prevalence estimates provide policy makers with information to guide policy development and to advocate for resources to do so.
Violent crimes directed towards women such as rape poses serious violations of human rights. The advocates of women’s rights have been able to put pressure on governments by placing gender-based violence in human rights framework to fulfill government’s obligations under international human rights law to punish and prevent such violence. However, despite a substantial number of contraventions, rape still exists in some form, filling the lives of women with pain and terror from which some might never recover. While the United Nations continues to promote democracy as the best system to secure women’s dignity and rights, India the world’s largest democracy fails to protect the nation’s women. In India, rape is the fastest growing crime and reports indicate that rape of women and young girls in India has increased considerably especially in recent years.
The Government of India has been trying to curb this issue through implementation of new laws, fast track courts and reinforcement of old laws.
