  8. 8. Women are facing with this harsh reality & even it is increasing day by day in the selfish world of 21st Century. Condition of women in India
  9. 9. About 10% of all the crimes committed in the country are those of women abuse. 30 lakh girl children were lost to female infanticide during 2001-2011. A woman is raped every 20 minutes in India. After 60 years of independence, 1 in 3 women in India are still illiterate. Only 39.5% women in India are economically active. Less than 40% of women give birth in a health facility. Of the world's 1.3 billion poor people, it is estimated that nearly 70 per cent are women. Between 75 and 80 per cent of the world's 27 million refugees are women and children. Only 28 women have been elected heads of state or government in this century. Of the world's nearly one billion illiterate adults, two- thirds are women.
  10. 10. An idea to improve safety of women • Ever increasing amount of crimes against women in the cities of Delhi and Mumbai • Lack of sufficient deterrent at the instance of crime when it is being committed • Failure of the police system to prevent the crime against women • Let us create a social organization under public private partnership model dedicated especially to the safety of women and to fight against all sorts of crimes against women in the city of Delhi and Mumbai • A creation of a parallel police system in public private partnership model dedicated to safety of women in Delhi and Mumbai • There is no private organization in the public security domain which could co-exist with the government police departments to fight crimes against women • We have private players in education, health care, public transport, industries, but not in public security division • Let us create a network of security personnel and security vans throughout the city of Delhi and Mumbai especially dedicated to women safety • It would be a 24 hours service in which private security men would be stationed at important and high crime places and security vans – similar to PCR vans – would roam the city of Delhi and Mumbai throughout 24 hours • It would have helplines, call and sms services and would evolve gradually to include more things
  11. 11. The organization would have its own security personnel which would be trained to handle situation like rape, harassment, kidnaps, fights, brawls etc.; especially dedicated to crime against women. A parallel police system – but in a social enterprise sense – dedicated especially to safety of women. The organization would be a not-for-profit organization, could be in public private partnership model (PPP model). It would leverage the latest technologies to fight crime and would have to get knowledge transferred from the police academies and organization from world over – FBI, Scotland Yard, London police and academic institutions dedicated to security. It would also help the state police network in times of crisis like terrorist attacks, natural calamities and other unforeseen events where such help becomes necessary – but its main purpose would be fighting crime against women. Not only some laws or operations are enough to kill this problem from our society. We have to Speak Out, Stand Out, Reach Out… All We Need
