  4. 4. • Every single reason why the women are the ones to suffer comes down to the patriarchal society monster running amok. • Be it the lack of education , health , nutrition, basic facilities, economic sustenance, security issues, low self esteem or the right to decision making, all zero in to the monster named above.  Etymologically, the men & women lived in the Hunter-Gatherer society.  Men hunted and women gathered food and other amenities. Till now no major problems.  Later on with the advent of developments , men came to be the ones to plough the fields and women were coined the child bearers and were supposed to look after the house and its inmates. From here began the division of labour that was detrimental to their future.  From that moment onwards it is a well accepted fact that the women are the dependent sector. Thus in one way or the other the women are themselves responsible for being deemed submissive and docile with appropriate augmentation by the male ego.  Along with the patriarchal problems intra-gender brutality also has equal blame to take . Even if certain women get some support from their male counterparts ,they have to accept defeat in front of the other females who try to manacle them in the bonds of traditions .  Problem of pedagogy originates from the male dominant society. Whatever behavior the boys of a family watch their fathers administer to their mother and sisters is what they assume to be apposite and emulate them.  Economic instability – the next in the hierarchy of all the causes is also the reason of women’s dependency on their male counterparts. Even in case of domestic violence she never revolts as she is much too concerned about her children to play with their future which could be easily spoiled in case of a split between their parents.

  8. 8.  Crime is omnipresent, the best savior for women is their own defenses.  Self Defense to be added in the curriculum of all school & colleges as a mandatory subject.  Institutions that specialize in training girls on self defense ought to be established.  The course in this field should be given the epitaph of a recognized degree.  Provision of employment as instructors of the women who graduate from these colleges to be made.

  10. 10. Mentality Matters Pictorial representations leave everlasting marks on a person’s mind. Its frequently noticed that the school text books depict doctors, engineers, musicians, politicians etc. as male figures. Why not represent the involvement of females in these fields as well ? Images depicting both gender representations will impose upon young boys and girls the impression of an egalitarian work force and encourage more girls to strive hard to qualify for such jobs.  Victims of rape , trafficking , prostitution etc. ought not to be victimized by the society and media. Their mental and physical anguish should not be attenuated by the volley of shame and tongue clucking that comes complimentary.  The women subjected to such heinous crimes should be encouraged to disclose their identities as they were no where wrong and the only allegation ever proven against them is that they were at the wrong place at the wrong time or that they were not “RESPECTABLY” dressed.  One cannot change the mentality of people who rape but we can assuage the society to accept the girl. Ousting her will neither solve the growing problem of crimes nor benefit the girl and her family.  For this before the commencement of every television series in an hour there should be a short film briefing people about the power of thought and mentality
