Violence against women – hindrance for equality, peace and development.

It’s a known fact that, Violence against women is deeply rooted in the history of human civilizations…and the undisputed cause for this human rights violation is the physical difference between both genders and religion/tradition..!! Even though we upgraded so many technology and living standards, this phenomenon remained the same..!!

It looks like Nobody took the initiative to give voice, against this violence against women until in the mid centuries some feminist movement came in to existence. However, the overruled patriarchal system gave men a superior power over the females, hence till date these movements couldn’t ensure necessary elements like safety, equality and peaceful environment for each and every woman out there..!

“Violence against women is perhaps the most shameful human rights violation, and it is perhaps the most pervasive. It knows no boundaries of geography, culture or wealth. As long as it continues, we cannot claim to be making real progress towards equality, development and peace.”

Kofi Annan

When I say violence against women, it varies from in-home partner violence to child marriages, abuses and female foeticide..Which means, this is faced by almost all age groups of women in the society. I know what you’re are thinking right now..about the laws which ensures women’s rights ..Do you think that laws alone can ensure women’s well being and equality..??Don’t you feel like it’s high time to come out of it for a better world..?Just think, how can a country develop without giving equal rights to all its people..??

Unfortunately,violence against women is not the only injustice women face globally;It is one of many inequalities that impede the full development of socially excluded women globally

I feel that there is no point of over and over addressing the same matter rather, lets focus on what we as an INDIVIDUAL can do to arrest this kind of brutalities towards weaker communities.

Let it start from home- a note to couples : The moment when we hear ‘it’s a boy’ the air fills with joy and when it’s a girl most of the couples get tensed…we can’t blame them, that’s what our society setup for welcoming a girl child. Reports from all over the globe, depicts the fact that Lockdown and work/learn from home amidst covid-19 helped in control of the spread of virus. However, it also marked a spike in the domestic violence especially against women. In my opinion Home should be a place where everyone should feel safe and comfortable…and what if it’s not like that..!!

Violence against women continues unless the situation at the home changes..let our boy child learn from us how to respect women and let our girl child feel empowered. Hmm.. I can guess what you guys are thinking..! – ‘No I never raised hand over my partner, cowardice does that..’ hmm.., well violence can also exist in the form of emotional violence or rather verbal too..!! God created men much physically stronger than women is to protect her not to conquer her. So give respect and take respect…let this act of self respect begin from our home..

We need more men with the guts, with the courage , with the strength, with the moral integrity to break our complicit silence to challenge each other and to stand with women and not against them.

Jackson Katz

To boys and girls: No matter what a girl wear, what is does, what she looks, what she talks, what is the time, how she behaves or is she alone ..it’s a big NO to touch her without her permission..remember, it’s cowardice act..yes you can stay as a good friend or caring brother..

And to girls, it’s ok to move out of a toxic relationship..it’s Okay to be assertive and make clear on your stand and give a second chance if they deserve it…If not, Don’t think about what society will feel about you or you will be a burden for your parents..! Show the courage to Speak up, stand up for yourself..And then you’ll be proud that you’re a survivor not a victim anymore..Yes, you deserve a better life..!

“Use the darkness of your past to propel you to a brighter future.”

Martial arts & women

Use the technology wisely for help.. get connected to your roots or to women shelter or organization to prevent abuses against women in your place..Even it’s okay to learn some martial arts for existence..haha..sounds funny..? Nope, nowadays parents including me with a girl child is giving more importance for it rather than teaching dance and music..!!

“Each time a woman stands up for herself without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.”

Maya Angelou

Don’t you remember our Malala’s post ..just think what happened when she stood up for herself..(if you haven’t read that post here is the link- https://lafemina.home.blog/2020/07/08/if-a-young-blogger-malala-can-why-cant-we-malala-day-2020/).

And just know that you’re not alone..If you know someone who really needs help, reach out to them , give the courage to speak up or move out and stand by them..

So let’s work together against violence against women ..and do you have more suggestions to the list..?? Let me know your thoughts on the same in the comment box below..and don’t forget to <<<like >>share >> reblog >>follow >>..Have a wonderful week ahead..

  1. Amazing inspiring post as always dear.Yes its true women now have more freedom to stand up to violence but still the no of women being open about toxic relationship is still low. So many struggles and torture they bared. Now we have women support organisations, self defense and law protecting us.. My heart goes to all the women who lived in the era when women were expected to be seen but never heard. My next week blog is based on that. keep up the good work.:)

  2. This is such a topic of needed projection and I’m glad you’ve added your passion and voice. Both men and women must play a part. With men having more work to do because the dominant patriarchal subdue of women in wrongful manners is ingrained deep in society and requires a collective eradication using boy child education om morals of gender equality, legislative laws to strictly deter men who abuse and harass women, and a conscious effort on the part of the male gender to do better. And women must keep fighting earnestly, boldly speak out, and come together to sustain the empowerment they so seek.
    Thanks for sharing 💚

  5. कुछ नही कोई कर सके
    नारी आजीवन तड़पे धरा
    देख आंसू ,बहाए आंसू सदा
    नारी ही बहाए वो यहा।।

    पुरुष प्रधान देश हमारा
    रखे नारी को सदा गुलाम
    कोई नही छुड़ा पाए उसे क़भी
    अब धरा नही उतरे कभी भगवान।।

    सब टूटे हुए हैं धरा
    कोई नही मजबूत यहा
    देख रोना सीखे रोना हम
    नही आवाज कोई उठाए यहा।।

    Nothing anyone can do
    Woman was tortured for life
    See tears, shed tears forever
    Women only shed it here.

    Male dominated country of ours
    Always keep a woman as a slave
    No one could ever get rid of him
    God never descended now.

    All are broken
    No one is strong here
    See, we learn to cry
    No voice should be raised here.

      1. क्या करे
        दुख तो बहुत
        होता हैं अफसोस
        कोई कुछ कर नही सकता।।

        What to do
        Sad a lot
        Regret happens
        No one can do anything.
