Women in India are living under constant fear all the time . Parents of every girl in India are scared to send her out at nights and let her go out alone . All this is because of the violence that is happening against girls and women in our country. It is a well known fact that Women in this country don’t feel safe going out alone or rather they live in the constant fear that something wrong might happen to them
The rising cases of female abuse and rapes in India have been evident in the past years . Small girls aged 3-7 are also being sexually harassed. This is something very unbearable . This has marked a black dot in India’s reputation. The tourists visiting India are warned and asked to be safe specially. In the past few years there were a few major rape cases that left the nation shocked . But have you ever thought about the cases which are not even filed ? The cases which no one knows about ? What about those girls , those families who don’t have the courage to come and speak ?
There are so many girls who are being raped as you read this. Some families don’t even file a complaint because they don’t want to jeopardise their reputation . On the other hand there are families who file the complaint but they cannot do anything more than that because of the blind law .
The recent case in UP left the country blown yet there were no serious actions taken. Rapes continue to take place yet there are no actions taking place . Some are just scared to loose their reputation and some simply can’t do anything because of the law . These rapist are just roaming about like they’ve done something big and they are not scared of anything just because they are not being caught
There are so many women and small girls who are being sexually harassed and tortured by their own family members . Yes you’ve read it right . By their OWN FAMILY MEMBERS . They don’t have a voice , they can’t take any actions against these sick bastards who they call FAMILY .
Some women are also being beaten up by their own husbands . When there is no safety in our own house how can we expect to be safe outside ?
After all this , women are taught to be carefull , to ware skirts out less often , to wear full sleeved clothes , to learn how to protect themselves. Fine , agreed . But why is nobody asking men to stop being so ridiculous. Why is nobody asking them to start respecting women ?
These are all the reasons why women don’t feel safe or rather are not safe in their own country .
Do we really want this kind of reputation for our country?
