Say, No to sex violence.

Tags:

Every woman should have the right to decide their sexual preference, have a freedom of private life, and freely choose a partner without being subject to discrimination and or commanding by the male member of concerned family. It’s a basic human right of women that not be subjected to torture–including marital rape of women. But the hyper sexualized culture of men of Bangladesh exposes to badly chosen behaviors to women that extremely hamper the process of achieving women’s human rights. Sexually charged images to women, men may feel humiliated pressure to sexually torture the women and the number of horrible incidents is increased intolerably. Incessant heckling and sexual harassment to teenage school girls and college going young women by stalker youths in Bangladesh appeared a leading tragedy of suicide of many talented girls/women only to have a respite from the agony of harassment and or sex violent behavior of men.

Say, No to sex violence.

Love and Respect to women a complete truth of getting back Love and Respect to compose the beautiful life cheerfully.

Hi Monu

Regardless of how horrible it is to write about this reality in Bangladesh, please keep doing it.

Letting the world know that this is happening is the first step to overcome and treat this sickness of our societies.

Please do something else too: talk about this with young men you meet everywhere. Many of them have no opportunity to talk about it and just "go with the wave", without thinking.

Intense debate will bring about intense change.

In friendship,

Jacqueline

Dear friend, Many thanks for

Dear friend,

Many thanks for coming forward with valuable inputs towards the intolerable issue of Bangladesh. You know, I am working with a Non-government Organization (NGO) name REMOLD in the country since 1993. The REMOLD is completely a value based organization and working exclusively for alleviation the existing sufferings of women and children.

Thank you once again for advising me about what should be done in order to reduce the causes of violation of such rights of women that I explained earlier. Anybody from rest of the world can’t believe that how much women are suffered soundlessly due to such discriminating situation in Bangladesh. Although, the present Prime Minister of the country Sk. Hasina is trying during her present tenure to commence few protection nets related to women rights nationally but the issue is completely not in attendance below to her intervention.

Yes, I have the same opinion with you, young forces as Change Maker; can take part in the imperative responsibility against the worst cultural views of men. REMOLD is looking to find financial partners and friends to work together in this connection and I hope someone obviously would be joining with the attempts of REMOLD from one globe.
We are in REMOLD strongly upholding the moral code that if a single woman whenever becomes a victim due to violation of her by born equal rights that automatically be a sign of victim of all women of one world.
Therefore, please come everybody besides the women of Bangladesh for alleviating the hundreds years long lasting sufferings.

Stay close, my friend.
