The Social Network discusses whether Indian men consider women as their equals? Why at the protests the men take over as guardians of women and set out to 'protect' the women, and pledge to 'guard' the women as 'their' 'mothers' and 'sisters'. We also discuss the Culture of Violence that prevails. What's the role of state, and the pressure to be 'a man' on the male psyche. Dr Akshay Khanna, Anthropologist at Sussex University, joins us in the studio with Swap Starker of NGO Family Foundation while Tariq of 'Men Against Violence' joins us on Skype from Bangalore.
