Rape,dowry,foeticide-Modern times holocaust of the Indian women:part 1


Every 22 minutes a woman is raped in India, every 90 minutes a bride is burnt alive! out of every 10 women 7 have been sexually harassed, female foeticide status at a all time best ,945 females per 1000 males and honor killings reported at least a 1000 every year. and the icing on the cake, India is on the number 4 Th position in the list for most dangerous countries for women giving tough competition to Afghanistan and  Congo. WOW!!! Not convinced watch this- NIRBHAYA

Many of us must have come across these famous lines,”water water everywhere,not a drop to drink” Yes that’s the state of rapes in India, every where whether you are rich or poor doesn’t matter ,whether you are young or old doesn’t matter, maybe the policies of government for population control or illiteracy eradication may not have access to the cross section of people in the country but the objectification of woman is a common theme for all. Right from the daily wage labor class to the factory workers to employees of MN C’s ,the first thing men notice about an individual is her gender and then the vicious circle of teasing ,harassment and rape starts.In India being a woman is a curse! You think I am overreacting then please watch this.

Mostly  they will kill you in the womb itself or if you are successful in taking birth,then you had it.Right from the discrimination at home where you will be competing for food ,clothing and education with your brothers or fathers or uncles,to the widespread unreported sexual abuse by the same men folk, you would also be taught by the women folk what you are not suppose to do since you are a female, yes you got it right a list of d  o’s and dont’s is handed to every little girl in India and yes her ears are pierced even before she starts speaking because she is a girl and it is her duty to become beautiful even when she is still running around in her diapers!

Only 12 % out of India’s 355 million women use napkins.Sanitary products are still classified as luxury items.23% girls drop out from school on reaching menarche.
Other effects of no menstrual facilities are:-
Lack of participation of women at workplace.
Increased rates of reproductive tract infections and cervical cancer.
The first step towards empowering woman and giving the freedom from the menstrual handicap would be abolishing the tax on menstrual products and bringing them under”Essential commodities act “.
Secondly environment friendly sanitary napkins should be placed in all public places in vending machines.
Also one very important aspect is that of the manufacture of environment friendly sanitary napkins still remains an untapped market and millions of women can be provided employment by setting up manufacturing units at every level in cities, towns and villages.
Not only shall it empower women and maintain their health but it shall also bring about economic empowerment in Indian women which has been a distant dream till now for the policy makers as well as the women of our country.
This will bring about a social revolution which will further bridge the gap of gender inequality.
