Do you think there are far fewer women on the streets in India based on the video below? As a baseline reference, there is another video below of China's streets scene. I can not use subway scenes for comparison because India's public transportation is gender-segregated to protect women from sexual advances from men.

India is a seriously problematic country. It has all of the third world problems writ large, then many peculiar problems all its own. Strange, dirty and extremely backward.

Yes of course, I've noticed it. I also think "where are all the women?". It's the culture, it really doesn't have anything to do with the fear of sexual harassment or fear of rape (although that's a problem). Simply enough - it's a man's world. Men are the ones expected to work and make deals and go out drinking, women are expected to stay at home and cook and take care of kids. Similar to the Middle East.

I feel like it has a lot to do with sexual harassment though. The rape stories are completely insane. One woman on a bus, and like ten men, and the first thing they think about is 'rape' because the sun went down, and they see that as an opportunity? I mean when all the men think consensually like that on a bus, who are presumably strangers from each other...it is just more than a bit ingrained into the culture in some way.
