Every day in India, there are 4 rape cases reported every hour. Many more rapes in the same hour go unprecedented due to the fear of victim blaming and shaming, a tainted reputation and additional attacks that may follow. We believe that open eduction on taboo matters such as sexual consent and puberty can help solve the issues concerning juvenile rapists. Open education and discussions on puberty and sexual consent are shown to decrease the rates of assault and violence against men, women and children. By schools providing this education, students are able to ask questions rather than be ashamed of their growth and sexuality. This safe environment allows them to grow into individuals who are able to voice their opinions in an acceptable manner rather than abuse the freedom that their curiosity has given them. By having a healthy, open discussion, we can ensure that these topics are normalised within society. This in return, develops our young population to become mature and responsible citizens who are able to ensure the wellbeing of themselves and those who surround them. If we are able to implement this into society, our youth would feel much safer. Girls will walk the streets with confidence and boys will be able to seek help for their psychological and social health without judgement.
