In-response to All violence is male-generated: Maneka Gandhi
Violence is a trait of all animals. Since humans have learnt to control it, humans have become civilised. Violence is not a trait of a particular gender but a primitive trait inherent in all animals.
If we look into the animal world where Smt. Maneka Gandhi specialises, we can find loads of examples where a female animal assumes the position of leadership through violence.
Moreover it has been scientifically proven that the nursing mother is the most violent in the animal world. In human beings the basic upbringing of the male is invariably done by the female(mother) so violence in males as well as females is often female-generated. As such violence cannot be attributed to a particular gender.
