When I was returning home from the near by temple, a boy
followed me home. I have been scared ever since. There is no security for women. Men see women as objects rather than human
beings. The society needs to change. Their perspective needs to change.
Respecting woman should be taught in every household. More rules and laws
should be made for women safety.
Nirbhaya case was a shocking incident and has affected me badly. The judiciary system in India should have a fast process because it takes years to punish the culprits. There should be some strict law against such crimes.
Nowadays in buses woman are touched inappropriately. These may seem as minor issues but they are not. It makes us feels uncomfortable. The public transport system in Tamil Nadu especially in Chennai are not good and measures should be taken so such incidents do not occur. There should be separate seating for ladies so that such abuses can be stopped.
rehabilitation and counseling are a must in India especially for people who
After the Swathi case, I think there should be more protection in the railway stations because thousands
of people travel every day. Culprit should be punished and security guards
should be appointed in public spaces
Abuse against women has been on a rise. Laws should be made severe so people would be scared before
committing such horrible crimes.
It is true that after 8pm
it is not safe for women to go outside. Parents should make boys more
responsible and respectful. Because that will make women feel safer. I will
make sure that my son follows such principals.
Swathi who was murdered on the railway
station of Chennai in front of
several people is a big incident that indicates women safety in public spaces
is very important.
My friend belongs from
the kukkampatti village who faces caste discrimination every day. He is called
named on the basis of his caste and during festivals he is told to cook
separately. Caste discrimination is very much prevalent in our society and it needs
to be addressed.
It is important that every person is taught about human rights. It is not only restricted to law but also human behavior and compassion.
Swathi’s case in Chennai affected me badly. The people who were at the spot should have stopped that person and they should have helped her. It is our responsibility to help one in need and to make this society better.
A 12 year-old girl was raped and no action was taken by the society. Isn’t it our responsibility? Government has to take steps to teach and create awareness to everyone in the society and conduct some events and activities so women are able to protect themselves and feel empowered.
One day when I was riding the train, I witnessed a mentally challenged woman undressed and was being told by the lady officers to step outside the train. The woman was alone and was unable to give details about her family or where she lived. I felt helpless. There should be a way for us to help such people so they can reach their home safely. Probably a center we can contact. We can become responsible citizens only if facilities are provided to us.
My friend is physically tortured by her in-laws. She tried to seek help from an NGO but the situation remains the same. This kind of domestic violence should not only be taken care by the NGO’s but the government as well. Strict action needs to be taken against such people.
Creative ways to spread awareness to every part of the nation is an important step to insure women security and dignity.
Corruption is spreading like wild fire. Something needs to be done to stop such a mess so that innocent people are not assaulted.
I was returning home with my friend one night and a boy started to circle around us while we rode his bike. He
touched my friend inappropriately and made abusive comments. We were scared and made it home as soon as possible. Empowerment for woman is
very important. If government can provide classes for woman on how to deal in
such situations verbally and physically then we will be more confident.
Most people in villages are uneducated and we need to create awareness about the importance of education especially for children. Educating
the rural area will help them grow and make a better livelihood.
day women are facing human rights abuses. In
offices, many women are not paid properly and we can’t do much about it. There
should be a way where we can demand for equal pay and respect in work culture.
by day child labor is escalating. We have to educate the poor and create
awareness. For daily income, the parents
send their children to work without second thoughts about their child’s
education. Parents need to know that their future can be better if their children
are educated and only then they will be able to provide better for the family. I’m ready to stand against child labor and so
should the government.
In a democratic country, each and every individual has the right to express. They should not be arrested
for speaking their views. The constitution says that we have the right to freedom of speech and expression.
Everyone should speak up against brutality and oppression.
I am concerned about tamilians. Human rights abuses still exists in Sri Lanka. Action needs to
be taken both by the society and the government.
