Is there is a proper security for a women in these days?

We all are coming across many cases in these days where women are assaulted sexually, mentally and physically. Don’t we have a proper security in these days? It is really tough to understand why some of the mans are becoming merciless and behaving like animals . Every day at some or other other place harassing a women has become common. even for the minor things some of the people are going to any extent to take the revenge. Attacking a women using acid, gang rapes, eve teasing etc has become common in these days. Generation by generation women are harassed in some or the other ways. If a girl is not agreeing for a guys proposal she is attacked by him, or if a girl is going alone she is harassed sexually. we know recently in hyderabad approximately there has been a minimum of 5 or 6 women are attacked ny pouring acid and few are killed using weapons.on them. How far is this situation is correct? Will there will not be an end for this?

Even after all these things there is no much action taken by the government. Neither those people are punished nor a proper justice is provided for women. So if this is the case can a women can be secured in this society. What can make stop this???????????

Disturbing

Hello Priya,

As you said, discrrimination and violence against women has been around for a long time - but it is very disturbing that such violence has become so extreme. Some of the things that happen in this world are so unjust and there is no simple answer that can make it stop. But at the very least - it must not go unnoticed. That is why raising awareness is such a important part of the process.
