Rise for empowering the women: Youth Style

  1. 1. Presentation by: Rahul Pareek TECH52248 State: West Bengal
  2. 2.  Besides the campaigns that look after the needs and rights of women, too little is implemented. What comes out as a result is the deprivation of women of what they do deserve.  Considerable cases are heard about rapes, the disgraceful act towards females because of dowry, female feticides etc.
  3. 3.  The cry for gender discrimination, which undertakes empowering the position of women is quite a concerned problem, though the “least concerned”.  India is budding out as a health conscious country, but amidst this “healthconsciousness” women are kept lagging behind, most unconcerned.
  4. 4.  EDUCATION When it comes to educating girl, many will step back from this commitment, as the thought goes that its just a mere “waste of money” when much is to be invested in the form of dowry when she will be seen off to her husband‟s home. If we have to believe the literacy survey conducted in the year 2013, literacy rate of women accounts to 65.46% as compared to their counterparts which accounts to 82.14%.
  5. 5.  According to a 1998 report by the U.S. Department of Commerce, the chief barriers to female education in India are inadequate school facilities (such as sanitary facilities), shortage of female teachers and gender bias in the curriculum (female characters being depicted as weak and helpless).
  6. 6.  It does not make a huge talk when in the daily news paper a column reads out a new crime which has laid yet “another” woman to the sleep of death.  The National Crime Records Bureau reported in 1998 that by 2013 growth in the rate of crimes against women would exceed the “population growth rate”.
  7. 7.  RAPE There is no doubt in the inclusion of this crime on the top of the list. Yet no other being so competitive than this one when it comes to taking a woman‟s life yet leaving her alive. Dignity of a woman is now no more the same, when she has to think before she goes out of her home even in her own country. New Delhi has the highest rate of rape-reports among Indian cities. If sources are to be believed, rape cases in India have doubled between 1995 and 2013.s
  8. 8.  According to the NCRB, 29,807 rape cases were registered in India in 2013, although the cases of unreported sexual assault is higher.  The New Delhi “Nirbhaya” case is the recent one.
  9. 9. Acid is cheap, easily available, quickest way to cleanse the toilet sinks and of destroying a woman‟s life too. Weak and gutless men use it as a weapon to take revenge from the woman who “dared” to refuse his proposal. Many cases have been come up, one of an NCC cadet of Jharkhand, who is now striving to breathe every second of her life. The criminals, as usual free as before.
  10. 10. When it comes to the rituals of India, one which has always concerned the father of the bride is “how to arrange the dowry”, which is a “demanded gift”. At least 5000women in India die dowry-related deaths, and at least a dozen die each day in „kitchen fires‟ thought to be intentional.
  11. 11. In 1961 the Government of India passed the Dowry Prohibition Act making giving and accepting of dowry in marriages illegal. Though very few has been enforced, as the number of dowry-related deaths are increasing day by day.
  12. 12. It has been a common belief in India that it‟s a son who can maintain the legacy of a family and the whole family than relies on him, females are considered as a burden, as nothing could be expected out of them. So this belief of people has led to a steep increase in the female infanticides, i.e. an unborn female child is laid to the sleep of death even before she could see the morning of her life.
  13. 13. Its not the „western culture‟ as they say is responsible for molestation of women, it‟s the thinking and attitude of illiterate men towards an educated woman. A woman has the right to wear what she likes and is comfortable in. No law can be well implemented even if the law makers are involved in these activities. In 2013, India‟s top court investigated on a law graduate‟s allegation that she was sexually harassed by recently retired Supreme Court judge.
  14. 14. When it comes to the health of women in India we are least concerned. The maternal mortality in India is the 56th highest in the world. The average female life expectancy today in India is too low as compared to many other countries. Diseases like malnutrition, anaemia, breast cancer are common among the Indian women.
  15. 15. Though India is developing where economic strategies are concerned, but not a single eye gives a look on the miserable condition of women. Laws are created, but not followed. People protest but themselves don‟t want to unveil what has happened with their daughter. This would never be same if we take logical steps.
  16. 16. Instead of merely talking and debating on the issues that were discussed in the previous slides, we should find out the solutions to them. Much to our astonishment, solutions are present in front of us but we ignore them.
  17. 17.  First we have to understand that what is the importance of the role of a woman in our society. Can we imagine this world without them? Would this world exist then?  So, first thing we have to do, is educating women. This would result in having power in their hands. They would be able to decide what is right and what is not.
  18. 18.  We have to accept a girl child as we do with a boy child. All are equal, and so are these counterparts. Sometimes even better. Research shows that old parents are supported more by a girl child than a boy.  A women‟s health should be taken care of, when she is pregnant she needs a special dose of nutrients.
  19. 19. Respect is earned if we give it. We cant expect our wife to give us respect or to obey us if we don‟t think for her dignity and integrity. A small thinking can bring a vast change. Then that day wont be too far when this country could be proud of “everyone” that are born on it.
