Can the media raise men to respect women?

There are 4.3 billion people in Asia. That's a lot. In India alone there are 230 million men under the age of 18. As many as 116 million will grow up and will hit women, and as many as 58 million will rape women*. Help! This is an epidemic! The most common reason for rape is that men feel that they are entitled to sex, as a result of how they have been raised in communities, and in school; it is an entitlement often reinforced by the media. Is media part of the problem? If so why? And can't we turn the tables and leverage media to raise men to respect women instead? *http://ecf.org.in/DATA
