Hello Guys ! So today I come up with a very sensitive issue to discuss with you i.e Women’s Safety. Now a days On every second we are getting a report about the violence against women’s. In every country this has been the major issue.

From the day 1 when the girl is born she has to bear so many problems because she is born as a girl. Now a days When we turn the pages of a newspaper, we come across many headlines reporting cases of sexual harassment, sexual assault, molestation, rapes, trafficking, ill treatment of women in houses, violence against women in remote areas and urban areas etc. These all indicates that there has been an increasing trend of such sexual overdrives in present generation.

No women is safe in this country . But do we really think who is responsible for all this? Is it the lapse in legal system or this country or the police or the public where such incidence occurs or the Society as a whole. I am not talking about any specific country it is all over the world.

We all doing the blame game for this type of incident daily but don’t try to reach the root of the problem. One thing I would like you tell you here that we have two types of approaches to solve this issue, The first is short term solution and second one is long term solution.

As a good citizen, we have a fundamental duty to contribute towards bringing an order to ensure dignity and respect for women so that she can also enjoy her human rights and fundamental rights with sense of pride, freedom and confidence. To ensure this at every level the society must work together to give an edge to the solution. To protect a girl child we should always teach her Judo karate for their self defense.

For this we need to give women such devices and gadgets which could provide her location using GPS technology to a central control room of police or send messages of her address to nearby locations like we have one new safety watch in the market which has this ability to send messages to our dear one’s. When you go to somewhere always send taxi number and your location to your family members so that they can easily track you.

One option is to keep some pepper spray with her. This is most useful product for women when going outside without their husbands or any male persons. A small knife in her wallet also helps women for protection. Always watch your near by surroundings. Don’t ignore anything suspicious. Even in malls when you go for any shopping always check with hidden camera’s in the changing room. Lots of news are coming daily about changing room hidden camera. Don’t take any type of drink and food with strangers in any condition.

Parents should keep an eye on her daughter continuously because now a days you never know when your daughter will be in trouble. Always talk to your girl child and keep watching her behavior daily.

One important thing I just need to mention here that please don’t go anywhere with your male relatives other than your father and brother. Now a days several cases seen by us of some relative take the girl to somewhere with him and sexually harasses her or something like that. Sometimes it has been seen that some girls to have an interest in going on  vacations with their friends without informing their parents and they got betrayal for their friends so always keep your parents informed.

Another option is to reform our police system. We need to allocate some women police in every area. Introduce CCTV camera’s in all areas of every city. Also reforms in our legal system is required such as stringent punishment which are non bailable in nature. This could act as friction to those who perpetrate crime. Court has to be more cruel towards the guilty. The punishment should be very strong so that he should think several times again to act such type of activities.

We need to introduce women driver in all transportation so that women’s will be feel more safe while traveling with these vehicles. Now-a-days there is some Pink auto running in different cities in India for only women’s. This is we can say some sort of active startup to protect women.

One of the main aspects can be seen in parents preferring male child over female. In every aspect of life, women’s are denied or given less preference over male whether it is for giving education or access to health care. They have not been a freedom to choose their profession. This system thus gives a feeling in male that they are superior and hence dominate over women. This generates hatred in male against women if they see a woman crossing their limitations. Now women are no longer behind the men they are above the men in all fields .

For ex. Sushma SwarajKalpana Chawla, Mary Kom, Priyanka Chopra.

So as you see problem’s are not depending on 1 or 2 factors, Its a combinations of different factors which has to be deal with some proactive decisions. In other words, we need to take action not by force but by will to make our country more secure and safe for our better halves and bring up reforms in the desired direction so that woman can also enjoy their freedom and rights ,and feel more empowered and fearless. One more important point that A Relationship between husband and wife matters a lot. A man and women relationship plays a very crucial role here in Women’s safety.

  1. Very nicely written. If a girl is shown​ respect by the people living in the society it directly reflects their upbringing. But one thing is there which i would like to say. That now it’s time for some strict legal actions against the crimes that takes place with regard to girls. If we want to respect girls and if we want to make them more safe in the society then this should be done.
    I am very glad that you as a blog writer has come up with such a topic. Great efforts.

  2. Great article. The way the world is now, so much terrible things are happening to women all over the world. Even in my home country every day on the news is some abuse or violent crime. I think every country should do more when it comes to securing women. Something as simple as pepper spray is not even legal in my country, neither is carrying a small knife in your person because you can be charged. But I do agree women need to take it up on themselves to excise more caution and notifiy family members of whereabouts and as much details as possible about our means of transportation. Sometimes not even the women drivers can be trusted because some of them are working with the male criminal elements to lure women. So we all have to be very cautious even with our female counterparts. Love this article!

  3. ya you are absolutely right Shevy! Sometimes women drivers are also working with the mail criminals thats why we need to be more cautious about that. Thanks for commenting on it. Really nice of you..

  4. Great post. It’s true that due to such shallow and surfaced men and societal norms, we as woman face a undying stigma of being a woman. Our minds have been brainwashed into thinking that being a women is a shame, that men can objectify women. But its not. It is not okay to be objectified. It is not okay to make woman feel inferior about them. It is not okay for men to prey onto woman.
    But yes! Woman safety is important and it is only us as woman who will have to come forward and take a stand.

  5. This is such an important article. It’s sad that we live in a world where this is a constant, real, and scary issue, but the more insight and perspective the better! Thank you so much for sharing this perspective (and these tips)

  6. Women definitely face many challenges in this world. Although these are good tips for a woman to keep herself safe, the real problem is the sense of entitlement that many men have. Many men feel entitled to abuse or harass a woman. Sex has nothing to do with it, it’s about power. The real, underlying problem is that these men feel they should have power over women and that’s why they abuse and harass women. This has to change. We must educate the next generations in a way that men will no longer think they can abuse women in order to feel powerful.

  7. Yes exactly my point. We need to educate our new generation like that men should abuse women in order to feel powerful.

  8. Hello! Thank you for this informative blog post on women’s safety. It is truly a worldwide concern. As a woman, there have been moments when I feared for my safety, and it’s important to realize that the responsibility first lies with me. I am glad for the reminder that I can take proactive action to ensure my safety. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I do think women in this world has many difficult challenges. Some places worse than others. I have taught my daughter many thing sin order to protect herself from predators and harassment. Thankfully, I live in the USA where women can file charges against men or boys who abuse or harass women.
