Women-only compartments are very necessary in Delhi. The subway is much too crowded at peak hours, and some men take advantage of the situation to touch women in a disrespectful manner. Giving women their own space was a very good decision. When the women-only compartments were inaugurated, there were big announcements and a lot of media coverage, so everyone knows men are not supposed to go in. The men who still do so are blatantly breaking the law, trying to be macho and bullying the women into not saying anything. I think the beating was a good thing, it might teach them to treat women with respect.
