While India has made tremendous economic and social progress in the past 20 years, it's a shame that the country is world-renowned as the fourth most dangerous place on the planet for women. Nothing seems to deter crime against women in India. There are around two million women reported missing every year, over 12 million female foeticides reported over three decades, countless unreported rape and even if reported, conviction rate is about 22%.A recent report by UNICEF showed an overwhelming 57% of adolescent Indian boys think wife beating is justified. Indian women have been suffering in silence and not receiving any justice for a very long time. 

A legal panel, set-up after the brutal gang-rape of a 23-year-old student in New Delhi, submitted a report to the Government on 23rd Jan. Reading the “introduction” of this report is highly recommended (link provided in the petition letter).

 

This is a noble attempt to continue the fight and persuade every citizen in India and around the globe to take responsibility. Let us join hands and show our support to fight this evil. As citizens of the world all we need is compassion towards fellow human being, no matter where you are, who you are, if you strongly believe that crime against women is unacceptable, please sign this petition.

Finally, each one of us has responsibility and a role to play. This also gives us a chance to take the following oath, “From today I will not stand by and remain silent against injustice towards women”

      “I earnestly wish to point out in what true dignity and human happiness consists. I wish to persuade women to endeavor to acquire strength, both of mind and body, and to convince them that the soft phrases, susceptibility of heart, delicacy of sentiment, and refinement of taste, are almost synonymous with epithets of weakness, and that those beings are only the objects of pity, and that kind of love which has been termed its sister, will soon become objects of contempt.”

      I have seen and experienced harassment by 'sick' men in India.

      I have watched helplessly in fear unable to defend my fellow women and myself while we were being 'Eve-Teased/molested'; and teasing is the last word that can be used to describe the disgusting and violating acts committed by these men, and the saddest part is most of these men find it glorifying that they have the power over the woman/girl child they abuse. Controlling/Forcing a woman is almost like a rite of passage that reiterates their masculinity. Sometimes I wonder if I should feel fortunate to have escaped with being 'just Eve-Teased/molested' and not raped/murdered? NO. There should be zero tolerance to ANY act of crime against a woman/girl child. Most of us do not even talk about these things for the fear of embarrassment or more so 'losing family honor' as it is called and if there is anyone who needs to lose 'everything' it is the perpetrator and not the victim.

      There are many good men and women around the world who find this rising injustice against women unacceptable and together I hope that we shall be able to make the change.
