      I know this is OT, but I occasionally catch flak here w/ accusations of racism for opposing outsourcing of US jobs to India.

      You know, the place isn't exactly a model for human rights protections.

      At the recent ASCO conference, a paper was presented on a program in India using an inexpensive vinegar test to help detect cervical cancer in women.  India has an extremely high rate of cervical cancer deaths.

      They had problems getting women to participate in the study because the country is so conservative and male dominated;

      Still, this quick and free cancer screening was a hard sell in a deeply conservative country where women are subservient and need permission from husbands, fathers or others for even routine decisions. Social workers were sent into the slums to win people over.

      "We went to every single house in the neighborhood assigned to us introducing ourselves and asking them to come to our health talks. They used to come out of curiosity, listen to the talk but when we asked them to get screened they would totally refuse," said one social worker, Vaishnavi Bhagat. "The women were both scared and shy."

      Call me what you want, but I don't agree with shipping jobs from the US to countries where the government and society treat women so badly.
