Gomes of AllMusic stated: "Cheap Trick's killer opener shotguns the protagonist's motto "Everything Works If You Let It" into an unholy marriage of "Spirit of Radio" and "Hey Jude."

Gender inequality in India

Gender inequality in India refers to health, education and political inequalities between men and women in India. Various international gender inequality indices rank India differently on each of these factors, as well as on a composite basis, these indices are controversial. Gender inequalities, their social causes, impact India's sex ratio, women's health over their lifetimes, their educational attainment, economic conditions. Gender inequality in India is a multifaceted issue that concerns women; some argue. However, when India's population is examined as a whole, women are at a disadvantage in several important ways. In India, discriminatory attitudes towards either sex have existed for generations and affect the lives of both sexes. Although the constitution of India grants men and women equal rights, gender disparities remain. Research shows gender discrimination in favour of men in many realms including the workplace. Discrimination affects many aspects in the lives of women from career development and progress to mental health disorders.

While Indian laws on rape and adultery have women's safety at heart, these discriminatory practices are still taking place at an alarming rate, affecting the lives of many today. The following table compares the population wide data for the two genders on various inequality statistical measures, according to The World Bank's Gender Statistics database for 2012. Various groups have ranked gender inequalities around the world. For example, the World Economic Forum publishes a Global Gender Gap Index score for each nation every year; the index focuses not on empowerment of women, but on the relative gap between men and women in four fundamental categories – economic participation, educational attainment and survival, political empowerment. It includes measures such as estimated sex selective abortion, number of years the nation had a female head of state, female to male literacy rate, estimated income ratio of female to male in the nation, several other relative gender statistic measures, it does not include factors such as crime rates against women versus men, domestic violence, honor killings or such factors.

Where data is unavailable or difficult to collect, World Economic Forum uses old data or makes a best estimate to calculate the nation's Global Gap Index. According to the Global Gender Gap Report released by the World Economic Forum in 2011, India was ranked 113 on the Gender Gap Index among 135 countries polled. Since India has improved its rankings on the World Economic Forum's Gender Gap Index to 105/136 in 2013; when broken down into components of the GGI, India performs well on political empowerment, but is scored to be as bad as China on sex selective abortion. India scores poorly on overall female to male literacy and health rankings. India with a 2013 ranking of 101 had an overall score of 0.6551, while Iceland, the nation that topped the list, had an overall score of 0.8731. Alternate measures include OECD's Social Institutions Gender Index, which ranked India at 56th out of 86 in 2012, an improvement from its 2009 rank of 96th out of 102; the SIGI is a measure of discriminatory social institutions that are drivers of inequalities, rather than the unequal outcomes themselves.

UNDP has published Gender Inequality Index and ranked India at 132 out of 148 countries. Problems with indicesScholars have questioned the accuracy and validity of these indices and global rankings. For example and Hanmer acknowledge that global index rankings on gender inequality have brought media attention, but suffer from major limitations; the underlying data used to calculate the index are dated and questionable. Further, a nation can be and are being ranked high when both men and women suffer from equal deprivation and lack of empowerment. In other words, nations in Africa and the Middle East where women have lower economic participation, lower educational attainment, poorer health and high infant mortalities, rank high if both men and women suffer from these issues equally. If one's goal is to measure progress and empowerment of women with equal gender rights these indices are not appropriate for ranking or comparing nations, they have limited validity. Instead of rankings, the focus should be on measuring women's development and gender parity by relevant age groups such as children and youth.

It is accepted that India along with other developing countries have high gender inequality and lower women's empowerment than developed nations. The cultural construct of Indian society which reinforces gender bias against men and women, with varying degrees and variable contexts against the opposite sex, has led to the continuation of India's strong preference for male children. Female infanticide and sex-selective abortion is adopted and reflects the societally low status of Indian women. Census 2011 shows decline of girl population under the age of seven, with activists estimating that eight million female fetuses may have been aborted in the past decade; the 2005 census shows infant mortality figures for females and males are 61 and 56 out of 1000 live births, with females more to be aborted than males due to biased attitudes, cultural stereotypes, etc. A decline in the child sex ratio was observed with India's 2011 census reporting that it stands at 914 females against 1,000 males, dropping from 927 in 2001 – the lowest since India's independence.
