Last Monday while one of my friends was travelling by bus, a man in his fifties sat next to her. Within a few minutes he had started brushing his shoulders against her, and later he had touched her knee. When she felt uncomfortable, she had moved to another seat without complaining. In another incident, a girl was asked by a guy on a crowded bus to sleep with him; however, when he touched her hand she slapped him. Further, a girl said that whenever someone comes closer and clos...

As you all know, education is and has always been the first priority of every country, but still we can't reach the goals we always aim at. Education emergencies are being applied to spread the awareness of a literate mind, but we are still struggling. The reason is that a poor father would not send his son to a school. Instead, he will finds importance in money and will send him to work and bring money home. Educating the mind will eliminate these kinds of thoughts. An educ...

Imagine a world without girls. A world occupied by arrogant and naïve men. Imagine you have no mother to talk to when you are hurt or a girl to call a sister.

If your thoughts are positive towards life, then that's how every girl child should be treated, catered for and nurtured. Girls have come to stay, and women a...

This and many more are yet untold of how teenagers send sexually explicit messages to flirt with someone and how some girls send nude photos of themselves because they were pressured by boys. "Technology, shaped our way of life positively but due to the misinterpretation of its usage, we flirt with its power and a great damage...

Media education acknowledges and builds on the positive, creative and pleasurable dimensions of popular cu...
