What will be the future of women under this situation?

Today the world is developing and world is becoming a global village. While walking on this way, suddenly I was struck hearing a sound which was unusual and heart hurting. It was a sound which was for the name of women.
Have you ever heard about the rule, which is in cinema field that showing women’s body parts is okay, but showing men’s has prohibited. Is this true? What about the place for a woman in the world. Is this the place which a woman can get in the society? If the answer is “yes”,why the people in the past, respected to the women as a god.
I heard my mother is the god in home, from my childhood. We respected her highly. It caused to grow the relationship between the child and the mother step by step. It has created a strong tight connection which can’t break in whole life. That is the “love “in a family as I saw.
What about today? What is the character which a mother is acting in the society? Is that the respect as the past?
My answer is “no”, it doesn’t mean at least we should respect them. How can a child respect to her mother as I told you before. She is acting as a market good in the society. She is selling to the people who are willing to see the scenes of women and sex. They are mad of it and they are ready to pay any amount of money to see them. Present woman also ready to act as the audience want. It is because of the money.
So, my point today is that the woman is selling as a good in the society. It is try to hide the respective place of a woman.
What will be the future of the women under this kind of situation?

Disrespect toward women

You make such an important point! If we love and respect ourselves, we have no need to view our bodies as commercial commodities. If we love and respect our mothers and sisters, we do not want this for them either.

But sometimes women are forced into these situations. We must all help other women and girls so that they are not made slaves and forced to sell their bodies.
