The paper looks at the obstacles and opportunities confronting the effort to end violence against women in Brazil and India. The paper begins with a study of Brazil and shwos how the rampant alcoholism found in Brazilian society, coupled with economic problems, is a challenge that is as real today as it was 20, 30, or 40 years ago. Moreover, the paper reveals that there is a high tolerance for domestic violence in Brazil. However, the paper also discusses how there are plenty of opportunities for things to change: women-only police stations abound and Christian outreach programs suggest brighter times ahead. The paper then examines India and its ugly spectre (and effect) of the caste system, the pervasive evils of alcoholism amongst the lower orders and the curious cultural mindset that seems to harbour an antipathy towards well-educated women. Finally, female attitudes towards violence, a cultural reluctance to shield women from violence, and the iniquities of the dowry are discussed as challenges - but also as things which present opportunities, too. In the end, the paper shows how Brazil and India do not have to perpetually endure violence against women - but they do need to make many changes.
