  3. 3. Problem Statement E ual ights to o e , o e e po e e t , o ge de ias - these slogans seem to have no relevance as far as incidents of crime against women in the city are concerned. Though as per the police records, a total of 2,28,650 such cases (crime against women) have been registered since January 2011, a y go u epo ted due to so ial stig a. As the populatio of the ity is i easi g, i e agai st o e is also i easi g. A d a ajo ity of the i ti s a e ig a ts, Do the laws protect women ? No – It’s e ho ha e to p ote t a d fight fo ou safety a d e po e e t. Training and Change Starts from self, then family, Community and finally by the Government. It is e ually i po ta t to la ify the o ept of Viole e agai st o e . Viole e is also k o as abuse and include any sort of physical aggression or misbehave. When violence is committed at home it becomes domestic violence and involves family members such as children, spouse, parents or servants. Domestic violence may involve different means such as hitting, kicking, biting, shoving, restraining, throwing objects. In broad terms, it includes threats, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, controlling or domineering, intimidation, stalking, passive/covert abuse and economic deprivation, rape, abduction, kidnapping, murder (all cases of criminal violence, dowry death, wife battering, sexual abuse, maltreatment of a widow and for an elderly women (all cases of domestic violence) and eve-teasing, forcing wife, forcing a young widow to commit sati, etc (all cases of social violence), are issues which affect a large section of society. “A lack of security is shaping their daily lives”.
  4. 4. Facts on inequality and status of women in India Women and Education Close to 245 million Indian women lack the basic capability to read and write Adult literacy rates for ages 15 and above for the year 2000 were female 46.4% male rate of 69% Women as Workers Participation of women in the workforce is only 13.9% in the rural sector and 28.9% in the urban sector Wo e ’s age ates a e, o a a e age o ly 75 % of e ’s age ates Exploitation of Women at Work Nearly 50% had experienced gender discrimination or physical and mental harassment at work. The number of women in India's workforce fell from 28.9 per cent in 2004-05 to 22.8 per cent in 2009-10, and even further to 21.9 per cent in 2011-12, according to the latest report from National Sample Survey Office (NSSO). Working women and experts said a lack of supportive policies, social prejudices, and even fears for personal safety, are restricting women's contributions to the country's economic growth.

  7. 7. Proposed Solution Self Defense Measures Public awareness in Bus stops Women Police Stations in Every town Mandatory military service Raising Support & Creating awareness in society "The most important thing is introducing the definition of security from women’s perspectives. It is not a man in a uniform standing next to her armed with a gun. Women have a broader term, human security, the ability to go to school, receive health care, work, and have access to justice. Only by improving these areas can the threats . . . be countered."
  8. 8.  Every family should take measures to provide safety for their children.  Confirm safe arrival at home post-late nights shifts.  Learn in Self-defence techniques  Vehicle tracking system in cars.  Sound a bugle for all women employees to leave office premises by 7:30 PM.  GPS and single press button facility in phones to send distress call to at least 10 seniors.  Co a , OR Peppe “p ay , a i sta t sp ay that i ju es the atta ke , itte pe issio f o plant head & HR head to retain an employee when every needed in times of attack. Nirbhaya This Application is a tribute to brave Delhi-rape incident girl. Nirbhaya is capable of handling emergency situations and sending notifications to pre-assigned contacts. The notification can be sent quickly with a single tap on PANIC BUTTON. We can even feed the contacting information about the nearby helping-authorities like police station, hospital etc., Implementation of the solution SELF & FAMILY BASED MEASURES:
  9. 9.  Senior Citizens can be involved to volunteer by watching over the day to day activities of women travelling through Buses.  They can just go for a walk along with the studying and working women till their nearest Bus stop , drop them and also pick up them .  This creates awareness of taking responsibility in providing security to women of every society.  Elderly people are engaged in women empowerment in an informal way. Pu li Awareness in ea h Bus Stop’s COMMUNITY BASED MEASURES: Responsibilities For Senior Citizens: Modern Culture Should be Restricted to a limit Indian youth will have to take is to revive our culture. If we break with our culture, we misdirect the forces of change and as a result of it no progress is made by the society. Radhakrishnan goes to the extent of saying, "Inattention to our culture in our universities is to no small extent responsible for the increasing unrest among the student". His advice to the young is that they should "enter more fully into the experiences and ideals of the race, if they are to live more abundantly". It is our culture that helped India to survive despite a number of destructive forces working against it.
  10. 10.  Emphasising the need to recruit more women in the police force.  women volunteers, has to be deployed in the vicinity of educational institutions, cinema halls, malls and markets, as also the routes frequented by women employees of BPOs returning from work at night.  have some more 'all- women' police stations in the city. Establish Women Police Stations in every Town COMMUNITY BASED MEASURES:  To protect and provide security to women  To train women with self defence techniques  To take up complaints and cases with special approach towards women abuse, violence and threat.  Open door for women grievance, where women can approach any counselling or help in time of need Immediate measures should be taken by the Government :-
  11. 11.  Establish a Military Camp for youth at every 200 kilometres  Implement mandatory military services for the youth to serve the country for at least one year An Idle Mind is a Devil’s Workshop MEASURES TO BE TAKEN BY THE GOVERNMENT: "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."  Engage unemployed youth by awarding with certificates or work experience credits for joining military services.  Youth will be motivated to serve the community and country  Retired X-Service men can be engaged in training and monitoring the military camps  To Survey every 30 Kilometres to ensure safety we need to establish a Help line centre in connection with patrolling team. RAISING SUPPORT : Establishing donation counters in Towns at Community Halls, Shopping malls, Public Places etc., Contributions collected will be used to support  Senior citizen volunteers engaged in providing security to the local community girls and women.  Retired and X- Service men Volunteers in training and monitoring military camps
  12. 12. Wo e ’s E po e e t i I dia is hea ily depe de t o o e safety a d se u ity. If measures are taken at self, family, community and state level then it is merely possible to render our efforts for women empowerment in our society and ultimately our country Impact of the Solution  Every citizen of the society irrespective to creed, cast, age etc., should realize the responsibility of contributing to the community development by rendering services or contributing financially. This eates a Ou “o iety o ept i the li es of e e y pe so .  Women can get trained in self defense and can protect themselves in any circumstances.  House Wives, Senior citizens, Retired x-service men etc., are given opportunity to serve the country in their leisure time.  These measures can create an awareness of women empowerment and security to the youth in every community and thus contributing to its development.  Unemployed youth can be motivated to render their services and can be awarded with certificates, work experience or stipend.  Thus every society can contribute their efforts at family, community and state level in aspects of women empowerment and safety. "Togetherness is power. If your voices are many, it is power. You will be heard”. Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
