  1. 1. Walk To Equality : Ensuring safety and empowerment of women Team details: Team coordinator : Richa Priyanka Team members : Utsav Sharma, Abhishek Roy, Debjani Sarkar, Prapti Bhardwaj College : KIIT University
  2. 2. Picture : Ankur Gupta, KIIT UNDP reports that India is the second worst country for women in South Asia. The growing crime rates and the almost static growth is so apparent. The need of the hour is to change the mindsets of the Indian population and to help the women realize their rights as an individual in India. Ankur Gupta Ankur Gupta Ankur Gupta
  3. 3. 1. Have you ever felt that indiscrimination on the basis of sex has affected your growth as a woman? 2. Have you ever been molested in any way? 3. Do you feel safe in India? 4. Do you know the safety number you should call, when in danger of any kind of harassment for immediate help (apart of 100)? 5. Do you know about the Sexual Harassment of Women (prohibition, prevention and redressal) Act, 2013? 6. Do you know about the law against stalking and voyeurism? 7. Do you know what share you hold in your paternal and ancestral property? 8. Do you feel that your family follows patriarchy? 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 No Yes P.S. A survey was conducted in the KIIT University's girl's hostel, involving the girls who are currently in second year of engineering to know about their status and view point on their immediate social background and to check about their awareness of the general laws that exist for their own security and empowerment. "Y" stands for "yes" while, "N" stands for "no". The unawareness about their personal rights among girls who can be considered properly educated and have well access to all the information on a regular basis was shocking. If this is the case of the Urban literate class, what must be for the illiterate rural women. Moreover, No e of the girls took a o e t to ad it that they do ’t fi d I dia safe for the selves.
  4. 4. Intensifying the safety and empowerment of women by the large scale spread of INFORMATION Proper report should be provided to the individuals regarding all the complaints registered and the action taken as per the legal framework. • Holding campaigns on a customary basis in rural as well as the urban India involving all sects and age groups.Campaigns • Preaching about the laws, the rights and the provisions that the government has made for all the females. Familiarity with the plans • Educating them about the little things that play an important role in survival, like counting, checking time, rectifying the expiry date on the medicine, etc. Education • Spreading the safety number and the contact details of the people and organization to refer to in case of any help or query. Safety provisions
  5. 5. Involvement of NGOs, the victims and the women who need an economical support for the campaigns. National Commission for Women Chief Secretary of the State District Magistrate Various groups of students that are above 18. NGOs, victims and needy The Panchayat NGOS, Self help groups, the victims and the needy Teachers, doctors, volunteers from Panchayat On the base functioning level, the campaigns and information spreading would be done by groups of women. These may be the victims, the needy, members of an SHG or an NGO, the unemployed, the literate, the doctors, teachers and nurses and the students. A group of five would be given the responsibility of educating a group of 50 on a customary basis. The reports would be directly administered by the District Magistrate in the urban areas and the Panchayat in rural areas. All the final reports should be re-checked by the Chief Secretary and then submitted finally to the National Commission for Women.
  6. 6. 50% of the funds required for the functioning of the campaign, earned via small projects involving women who want to use their craft to get an employ •Posters, Newspapers, Radio and Television advertisements on a frequent basis. •Funding the NGOs and economic support to the victims and the needy involved in the operation. Urban India •Street dances and plays, organizing events, initial funding of the small scale employment. •Funding the NGOs and SHGs and economic support to the people involved in the full time operation. Rural India There are a y o profita le stude t’s group i all olleges here e a i ol e the stude ts a o e 18 years of age i the campaign. We can start small scale entrepreneurship to generate a large fraction of the project expense. The government has provisions for supporting various SHGs and NGOs. Corporate Social Responsibility can also be exploited to generate funds. INR 1 crore per annum. INR 50 lakh per annum.
  7. 7. Ensured growth in the impact survey conducted right after one year of implementation, considering the same group of people surveyed before the execution. •Though the program will take a lot of time to establish a strong and helpful working framework, it will be very sustainable. With appropriate monitoring mechanisms, we can ensure long life to the proposition. Sustainability •Once it spreads to the roots, it will spread virally and very effectively. It will touch every single sector of women, every single age group and class. Both the rural and urban India will be equally influenced. Mass Coverage •The spread of information can help in reducing many prejudices and helping the women to know about the powers given to them by the government. It can make them feel more secure about themselves and can eradicate the fear to take a step against a crime. The crime rates will reduce with the increasing number of complaints registered and actions taken. Safety and Empowerment By the end of one year of implementation of the scheme, we can conduct a survey on the same wide variety of women we chose to inquire before the survey for the statistical analysis and know what exact impact is the program putting on the society. The monitoring mechanism would be made strict for the effective working of the program. Involving the victims, the needy and the people who are responsible morally for the society like the teachers and doctors will ensure the reduction in corruption.
  8. 8. No specific source of fund generation for campaigning through the program. Corruptionand disinterest We cannot possibly make a completely fool proof system considering the current corruption status of the country. People may not show much interest in the adverts and campaigns. Timeand Money We have no proper source of funding for the implementation of the problem. It will take time to build up. It will take a lot of time to involve a large number of victims in the program as very often, they are not willing to face the world. Adverts • Large scale involvement of media in the operation. Women • 100% volunteers should be females. SelfEmployment • Helping women start small scale entrepreneurshi p for earning their bills.
  9. 9. Laws concerning women empowerment already has innumerable provisions, with their potentials of fool proof implications. Yet due to societies lack of knowledge about these laws, women consider these rightful weapons as false sense of security. With proper knowledge of these laws crime concerning women is bound to go down. There are terms that grant women an entitlement to food, shelter, clothing, education, safety, employment and an equal status with respect to men in the society. Spreading awareness about the power our constitution provides to women will prove as a stepping stone towards brighter future for women empowerment. You edu ate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a ge eratio . Thank You!
