 40% of women commit suicide in India: they think they are beaten by their husbands.


The report points out that, to a large extent, Indian women who commit suicide are usually married, from more developed regions and usually under the age of 35.

This shows that Indian women are in serious trouble, says Poonam Muttreja, executive director of the Indian Population Fund.

In Murtrejas view, early marriage, male violence against women, and social problems caused by a deeply rooted patriarchal culture have all contributed to such high levels of female suicide.

Our social norms are very repressive, says Muttreja. Girls are not independent individuals in the countryside. They are called fathersdaughters, husbands wives, and when they have sons, they become sonsmothers. Previous studies by Muttrejas agency showed that 62 percent of women surveyed believed their husbands beating themselves was entirely legal. Researchers believe the link between suicide and marriage is that many women marry as mothers at an early age, lack financial independence, and are at risk of domestic violence. One in four Indian men has committed suicide compared with such a high female suicide rate, and the number has not changed much since 1990. The report also points out that suicide has become the main cause of death among young people. However, this situation is especially prominent among young women than men.
