Pay more attention to women: IMF chief's to Modi



Describing the latest incident of outrageous rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in India as "revolting", IMF chief Christine Lagarde today hoped that the Indian authorities starting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi would pay more attention to it.

Her sharp remarks come in the backdrop of a nationwide outrage over the rape cases in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua and Uttar Pradesh's Unnao.

"What has happened (in India) is just revolting. I would hope that the Indian authorities, starting with Prime Minister Modi pay more attention because it is needed for the women of India," Lagarde said.

"When I was last in Davos after Prime Minister Modi's speech, I did tell him that he had not mentioned the women of India enough. And it's not just a question of talking about them," the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund said.

She quickly clarified that this was her personal position and not that of the IMF. "By the way this is not an IMF official position. It is my position," she said.

So the IMF didn't congratulate him on his sir je kal straik. Rather called him the PM of Rapestan. Look like the world has different priorities.

IMF chief Christine Lagarde on Thursday called on India's leader to focus more on women in the wake of the “revolting” rape and murder of two young girls.

While she praised the nation's economic performance, “what has happened is just revolting,” Lagarde said when asked about the incidents in the past week involving a seven- and an eight-year-old girl.

“I would hope that the Indian authorities, starting with Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi, pay more attention, because it is needed for the women of India,” a visibly angry Lagarde said.

“It's not just a question of talking about them.”

Speaking as the International Monetary Fund opens its Spring meetings, she said she chided Modi earlier this year at a gathering in Davos because “he had not mentioned women enough.”

Lagarde, a long-time advocate for women's rights, said the comments reflected her personal view, not that of the institution.

The gang rapes and murders of the two girls sparked nationwide outrage and demonstrations throughout India.

A 2014 UN report said one in three rape victims in India was a minor.

Nearly 11,000 cases of child rape were reported in India in 2015, according to the National Crime Records Bureau's latest figures.

Did she really said that ? :O this is insulting.
Its insulting IF it came from a person who lived in a country with lower rape statistics :lol:

Latest statistics show that 12% of ALL french women admitted to being raped :cheesy:

Which literally means she has a 12% probability of being a rape victim.
