New ‘anti-rape’ jeans to combat abuse crisis in India
Two Indian women have designed a new line of anti-rape jeans which send distress signals to local police in the event of a sexual assault, the British daily the Daily Mail reported Thursday.
The collection, which was created by Siksha Pathak and Anjali Srivastava, aims to help in the fight against the growing number of sexual harassment incidents in the worlds largest democracy.
Each pair of jeans in the collection, which costs around $4 in India, includes a small electronic device that sends a signal to the closest police station when activated.

Isnt it a shame that we need this in 2014?
.... although it might just distract the officers long enough for the victim to escape while they answer their Cell.
... the police won't come. Now if it was a fog horn sound, or better yet, a siren, that would work better. When you hear a siren near you, what do you do? You look to see where the siren is coming from and what the eff is going on, no?
... I seen a documentary on this subject recently and was led to believe that the police are very sexist and don't believe it a crime, so going to the police is fruitless. That's why I think a siren would be better at drawing attention and stopping a rape that is about to happen. Unless those pants have a GPS in them and are very near a police station, they won't do no good.
Now maybe if all women in India start wearing regular jeans underneath their saris, men will think they are bugged and leave them alone?
What device is there to ensure that their families don't kill them because they were raped?
I'm now wondering if there was something that could be caustic to an attacker, a penis repellant if you will. And I'm not kidding. Rape is a heinous, soul shattering crime with light consequences compared to the damage it causes. Perhaps the thought of the loss of his favorite body part might work.
Except a lot of Indian men may not wear jeans with zippers.
If the men knew women had a way to snap their dicks off
They need to start mass producing this for the Indian market.
