EXTENT OF THE PROBLEM
•Latest data from the National Crime
Record Bureau suggests that a woman
is raped once in 20 minutes and 10%
of all crimes in India are of women
•The National Crime Records Bureau
reported in 1998 that the growth rate of
crimes against women would be higher
than the population growth rate by 2010.
•Official statistics show a dramatic
increase in the number of reported
crimes against women.
•Many crimes against women are not
reported to police due to the social
stigma attached to rape and
•New Delhi has the highest rate of rape-reports among Indian cities. Sources show that rape
cases in India have doubled between 1990 and 2008.
Walk to Equality:
Ensuring Safety and Empowerment of Women
CAUSES OF THE PROBLEM
•During every war and riot men have wanted to violate women. Men are raised in our
society to think that we are men because we demand, we take, we win, we conquer.
•Rape exists because of a patriarchal, misogynistic culture that condones it, whether
tacitly or explicitly, and because of widespread lawlessness that encourages it.
•Attitudes to women and recognition of their full range of rights should be linked to
REASONS TO SELECT THIS THEME
•Since rape, abduction, kidnapping, murder (all cases of criminal violence), dowry death,
wife battering, sexual abuse, maltreatment of a widow and/or an elderly woman (all cases
of domestic violence) and eve-teasing, forcing wife/daughter-in-law to go for feticide,
forcing a young widow to commit sati, etc. (all cases of social violence), are issues which
affect a large section of society . That’s why ,We should try our best to eradicate such
crime and inequality.
•Movies, religion, music and women themselves are all blamed for male sexual violence
against women, but rapists are not held responsible. A 'male-cosseting culture,' as one
blogger put it, in turn supports a rape culture. Let us completely destroy such a
inhuman culture from our society.
In India police to population ratio is 130 per 100,000 people (out of which women of age
less than age 40 years are 35,000 approx.).
So it is not possible for the policemen to reach out for safety of every single Female.
Each police station can have 10 – 20 teams of volunteers.
So that each team has to cover only circle of 100 – 150 meters
Radius around there living area.
The women who is in need of help , have to some how press the Emergency
button on the “MINI EMERGENCY TRACKING DEVICE (METD)”.
The message about the position of the women in danger is received by the
police station in that area and the volunteer team working in that area.
The volunteers present there will reach out to help, followed by the police.
The METD is then reset by the SHO of police , who is only able and authorized
Youth is that wonderful time when energy is limitless, creativity is at its best
and the ’never say die’ spirit is at its peak and India got a very high potential
of more than 78% of population who are below 40 years old.
In a nation like India volunteers are easy to get and only things required are
technological , financial support and a bit of training so that they can spread
there services all over the nation in full potential.
The students has already awaken that several NCC candidates are offering
there services all over the nation in case of any emergencies. They can be
brought to the crime against women field with a little support from the
government as providing certificates ,technology and financial supports .
As said "Only the wearer knows where the shoe pinches“ several women
victims are giving a helping hand to rape victims to pass through the ordeal
for justice and social acceptance without even being scarred for life . And
they are involved because of there on experiences that with a little help they
will glow as brightest in there field.
Youth from different fields are now coming forward to serve there nation
and forming different organisations .
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself
in the service of others.”
“warriors are born through training”
When a worrier is dead another is born From the land of
mahatma Ghandi , Bhagat Singh and netaji subash chandra
bose it is impossible to wipe away leaders .
Man power of India is marvolus and all we need is
moulding it to required purpose . With a small section of
training procedures every volunteer can be made into a
Proper support and awards can help to bring more
volunteers and more involved work .
Making a proper method for recruitments is also important
as to ensure the service reach all nook and corners.
Volunteers must be divided into small groups and must be
lead by a regional police station.
Special care should be taken to keep such groups active so
that they don’t fade into darkness as time pass by .
Mini Emergency tracking Device (METD):
Feasibility and working
The METD would use the GPS tracking or tracking based on the mobile towers whichever
As we have mobile network covering almost all parts of the country, the device may consist of a
small simcard like thing which will be utilised to send the distress signal via mobile towers.
METD may use network of any company(bsnl, idea itc.), whichever it can get. Just like the
present emergency contact no like 911 or 112. It would be as compact as it can be made.
METD must have multiple designs so that it can be fitted in a ring, ear ring, locket, wrist watch,
shoes,etc. It may be stitched with the clothes or the undergarments, depending upon one’s
METD would contain a stress button. Once the button is clicked it would send signal to nearest
police station with the help of nearest tower. The station will have some computer which will
track the location and will forward it to all the volunteers. The device will send its location
repeatedly in every minute or so, and all the volunteers will be updated if it is changed.
After knowing the location, the volunteers will rush to that area. As they are more nearer to the
place from where signal is send, so they may take instantaneous action, and can stop the before
it is committed. Later police will also reach that place and further actions can be taken.
The METD will be so programmed that if ones activated can only be stopped by the police
Distribution of METD
(Not that Difficult)
Consider an example of our own delhi….taking north delhi in this case
Area taken - north delhi
Total population - 883418 ( approx)
Female population below age 50 - 300000 ( approx )
Total police stations in north delhi region - around 120
now women under 1 police station = 300000/ 120
So , 2500 women under one police station is not that difficult
A police station in an area generally serves to around 5 to 8 thousand people so 2500 women
under a station is we think MANAGABLE.
Now , its should be the responsibility of our Police to make it reach to every single girl either by
organising Distribution camps or whatever they can think…… like calling everyone turn by turn
to the police station and making them register with the device .
Its not an extra task but just an step as the role of our police is to provide safety in every
possible way .
METD may not be able to reach to every women in India.
METD should be durable and should reqiure low maintainance and easy to repair.
It may be possible that no police station, or no network coverage will be nearby the crime scene.
There may be no volunteers in a particular place, mostly in rural area.
Wrong distress signal would be sent in case the stress button of METD is clicked by mistake, which will trouble both
authorities and volunteers . In such cases the troublemaker should inform the police as soon as she can.
