Essay On Discrimination against women
Evolution is the very essence of Human race.” Do not misjudge the meaning of ‘Human race’ as an indication to every person on earth for there is a big difference between the significance of word ‘Humans’ and ‘People’. Whenever we talk about evolution, the foremost thing that comes to our mind is the growth of technology or our living standard but what is left out during concluding our evolution is our intellect and general ethical code of living that further paves the way for our deeds, good or bad. Among those various things that we lag behind at, one is our views towards women. Even after thousands of years of the existence of mankind, they are yet to receive their deserving place in this patriarchal society that we live in.If you are acquainted with your geography well, you must be aware of the Nirbhaya gang rape incident in Delhi that took our whole nation by shock. The incident was so brutal and disheartening that it left me wondering if we deserved to be addressed as ‘humans’ or not, (like I said before the word ‘Humans’ and ‘People’ are totally different when it comes to their significance) because no matter who did that, it was an act of shame for our whole community and for the worse, there came these epic statements from our self chosen politicians like “Girls should not be doing this, girls should not be doing that. Blah blah blah..! ” To me, it sounded more like a thief breaking into someone’s house and then blaming the owner for using a bad lock. Every other day we get to see these news highlighted in a newspaper’s column about a newly wed girl getting molested by her in laws for dowry or some sick fortuned woman setting herself to fire for not being able to give birth to a male being. Considering the fact that a women has the least role to play in determination of the sex of her child, are not we being ignorant by putting forth our denial in acceptance of the reality i.e male partner of a couple carries biological agents which later on become vital in determination of the sex of their child? Are not we hiding our weaknesses by blaming it on women? There are numerous such rhetorical questions craving for an answer but who should answer them? You !Yes ! I am talking to you, the one reading this article. “How can I be any help?” You might wonder in your mind and so should you. This is not the first time you would have came across such question. Perhaps many times… Well my question to you is what did you do next? If you ask me the same, by the time I realized my folly, 95 times out of 100, I just gave up. Most of the times, the solution lies in front of us but we complicate things way too much that the idea of putting our thoughts to actions seems like a dull proposition. So, what to do ? Be Basic! Simple as possible… Take that first step and rest happens by itself. Particularly, about this issue, if you witness, you or someone becoming victim of discrimination, just ‘whisper’ against it. If you are asked to be quiet, speak! …and still if you are asked to shut up, look straight into their eyes and be loud enough for walls to kick back your echo and force them to realize that they are doing wrong. Ever noticed when we walk by a street dog and pick up a stone to throw at it casually, it shows us its teeth but never bites us. When it does that, sometimes we are scared and retreat. Had it not shown us aggression, it would have got hit for sure. We are exercising something similar. By raising our voice, we are indicating our aggressor that we are not ready to bear any injustice thereby reducing the probability of us getting victimized.Let not anyone of us behave like a frustrated Indian who waits for crime to occur and then sets everything to fire in rage but culminate in our minds the composure and wisdom to make a realistic change starting from ourselves. Let us change our views regarding women and provide them security and risk-free environment so they can walk around in this nation with their head held high.
