Violence against women is not a new or recent phenomenon. Women
have been the victims of violence in all societies, cultures
regions or religious communities in the world.
Today violence against women in India is alarmingly high. According to one estimate, there are about thirty specific forms of violence being committed against women from the pre-natal stage to their death and one in four women experience domestic violence during her life time.
The remedy for violence is not very far to seek. It is within ourselves. All we have to do is be human and give similar treatment to others. Women must organise themselves in groups and raise a collective voice against a system that turns a blind eye towards it. Law-enforcing machinery must be trained and made sensitive on the issue. We must put our efforts into changing attitudes of the youth including all- men and women and encourage more responsible men to voice their views and support this cause. As an attitudinal change in society is required if women are to live in the world as free human beings without fear. So, are you in?
