#AintNoCinderella: Why Indian women are posting midnight photos – BBC News:

This is typical- a woman chased and almost kidnapped was to blame, according to an Indian politician, not the perpetrators!! Idiot!

“Ms Kundu said she was “chased and almost kidnapped” and that she was “not lying raped and murdered in a ditch somewhere” only because police quickly responded to her distress call and rescued her.
After she wrote a Facebook post about her ordeal which went viral, senior BJP politician in Haryana state Ramveer Bhatti blamed Ms Kundu for what happened to her.
“The girl should not have gone out at 12 in the night,” he told the CNN-News18 television channel. “Why was she driving so late in the night? The atmosphere is not right. We need to take care of ourselves.”
Mr Bhatti then went on to tell The Times of India that “parents must take care of their children. They shouldn’t allow them to roam at night. Children should come home on time, why stay out at night?”
This “victim shaming” didn’t go down well, and soon women began posting photos of themselves out at night under the hashtag #AintNoCinderella.“
