“The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power.You just take it.”-Roseanne Barr,a well known American Actress,Writer television producer, director and 2012 presidential nominee of the California-based Peace and Freedom Party.
And it is very truly said,Being a responsible citizen I really want Indian Women and the Women around the world to stand up and fight for injustice,crime,atrocities happening with them because no one would ever know the pain of a Woman until you are a Woman.So,stand up for yourself and make this world follow the suite,show them the true potential you hold to change the world and make it a better place to live in and once you stand up for yourself you will find millions standing with you,supporting you and joining hands with you to fight the evil out of this world.
Women Crime 2011(NCRB Data)
Here is the NCRB-Crime Against Women data.
The amount of Crime against Women in India is on the rise with each passing day.Crimes like Rapes,Female Foeticide,Dowry,Child Marriages,Honor Killing,Domestic Violence all has piled up in recent times and now the time has come to put a halt on it.People who commit such crimes feel that the women are weak and thus can easily be suppressed.
But the main concern still remains that is ‘How can we put a halt to such crimes?’.To me until and unless we change our perception towards Women and Girls such thing will always be there and the best means to change one’s perception is education,illiteracy is main root to all evil,once we are educated well enough our concise will always make us a better one for the society.Apart from that promoting specific morals or values may be controversial,as such efforts are often associated with repressive and narrowly defined visions of the common good. Moral capabilities are essential, but the means to develop them must be consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,aimed at fostering the spiritual,social and intellectual development of all people.
Such capabilities can be taught in schools but will not be effective unless they take root in family and community.Neighbours,educators,health workers,employers,politicians, religious leaders,police,media professionals–all share responsibility for the protection of women.Promoting the eradication of elements in traditional norms and religious beliefs, practices and stereotypes which legitimise and exacerbate the persistence and tolerance of violence against women and children.Introducing and supporting gender sensitisation and public awareness programmes aimed at eradicating violence against women and children.Encouraging the media to play a constructive role in the eradication of violence against women and children by adopting guidelines which ensure sensitive coverage of the issue and avoid the perpetuation of stereotypes.
To make this all happen and to stop the crime against women we must rise up and stand together and pledge to make this world a better place to live in for Women.
