Women ain't sex objects

Friday, June 01, 2018

In this present scenario, women are seen as a toy that anyone and everyone are ready to play with. Why a woman is raped, harassed, humiliated and eve-teased? Is it only because she is a woman? From her birth till her death, she is treated as a sex object.

When a girl is born, she is rarely accepted by most families. When she grows up and goes to school or college, boys tease her. In 80 to 90 per cent cases, the accused is known to the victim. For instance, 27 per cent of rapes are committed by neighbours, 22 per cent involves the promise of marriage and 9 per cent are committed by immediate family members and relatives.

Many times victims don’t come forward to file a complaint against family members and relatives as it might tarnish the reputation of the family.
