It is common to hear and read the news of crime against women. They continue to suffer soon after their birth till they die. They are victimised in the countless way: eve teasing, harassment, domestic violence, dowry, murder, suicide, and rape are few of them. To remove this blot from our society, we need to look deep into the causes of this darkness.
In my mind, our misguided culture, low literacy rate among women and the inactive government are the causative factors. Male should be dominative, girls does not have right to be educated, they should work inside their houses, dowry is the right of a groom’s family and many other customs are being blindly followed by us since time unknown. On the top of this, our paralyses police, law and government system turns blind eye to all these crimes, because of this offenders easily escape after committing offense.
We need to empower the female gender. Free and compulsory education till the age of 15, and then the low interest rates of loans and scholarships for higher education would be very effective. This will break their dependency on male gender. Moreover, the government and non-governmental organisations should work tirelessly to bring the cultural change in the society. In addition, legislative amendments and strict execution of laws would bring the fear in the minds of criminals. Besides these, women should also learn some tactics to combat the criminals for their own safety.
In conclusion, history of developed countries clearly indicates that no society can progress, if they subdue the rights of women. And also teaches that, sooner or later women would succeed in claiming their rights, how challenging it may be.
