Safe Women - Safe India

Child Sexual Abuse, or the use of a child by a person in power for sexual gratification, is much more widely prevalent in the country than many may imagine. A2007 Study on Child Abuse by the Ministry of Women and Child Development revealed that 53% of respondents reported having forced one or more forms of abuse.

The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act 2012 (POCSO) has put in place strong legal provisions for the protection of children from sexual abuse and exploitation, laying down stringent punishments for a range of sexual crimes against children.

Women occupy half the globe. But, their survival has been a question; their existence with honour and dignity has been a problem. Women is the subject of sexual exploitation in and outside the home, to say on roads, trains, buses, hospitals, schools, workplaces and everywhere, wherever there is a male. She has no secured places in this universe to live in. Male Violence against women is a world-wide phenomenon. In the last few decades women’s issues and concern have been debated widely; the major issue being equality. Though their contribution in different economic, social and political activities is very well recognized, yet the idea of equality is still a distant dream. Women all over the world are overwhelmingly concerned with the issue of gender equality through women’s empowerment. Status of women in Indian society is a reflection of unequal relationships sustained by patriarchy built on male superiority and female inferiority, sex stereotyped roles, expectations and economic, social and political predominance of men and dependency of women.

GENDER DEVELOPMENT, WOMEN’S MOVEMENT:

The above situation is especially visible in the world of development, and finds its clearest expression in proliferating references to “gender” in local, national and international forums, and activists. One repeatedly hears of gender bias, gender sensitization, gender planning and gender training, to mention just some of the more common examples of its contemporary use. To begin with, discussions were limited to only “women”, rather than about systemic relations of inequality, involving the relations between both men and women.

CULTURALLY:

  • Gender specific specialization (work)
  • Cultural definition of appropriate sex roles
  • Expectation of role within relationship
  • Belief in the inherent superiority of males
  • Customs of marriage (Bride price/Dowry)
  • Notion of the family as the private sphere and under male control
  • Value that give proprietary right over women and girls.

ECONOMICALLY:

  • Limited access to cash and credit
  • Limited access to employment in formal and informal sector.
  • Limited access to education

WOMEN PROTECTION IN INDIA

Of all the promises made in the Constitution, the most important are the promises of the “right to life”, the “right to dignity” ”the right to personal liberty” and the “right to bodily integrity and health” In recent years, the criminal laws of the land have undergone radical changes to provide protection to women, more emphasis have been provided to existing laws and new enactments have been made, but unfortunately the remedy is becoming worse than ailments. At a time when despair and anger at the futility of hundreds of thousands of women’s lifetime spent in imagining a world that is safe drive us yet again to the streets; at a time when we wonder if all that intellectual and political work of crafting frameworks to understand women subjugation and loss of liberty through sexual terrorism has imprisoned within the covers of books in “women’s studies” libraries.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE:

Globally, one out of every three women faces violence at the hands of their husbands, fathers, or brothers and uncles in their homes. Domestic violence can be described as when one adult in a relationship misuses power to control another through violence and other forms of abuse. The abuser tortures and controls the victim by calculated threats, intimidation and physical violence. Although men, women and children can be abused, in most cases the victims are women. In every country where reliable, large-scale studies have been conducted, results indicate that between 16 and 52% of women have been assaulted by their husbands/partners. These studies also indicate widespread violence against women as an important cause of morbidity and mortality. Such violence may also include rape and sexual abuse. Psychological violence includes verbal abuse, harassment, confinement and deprivation of physical, financial and personal resources. For some women emotional abuse may be more painful than physical attacks because they effectively undermine women's security and self-confidence.

CRIMES AGAINST WOMEN

Crimes against women occur every minute; every day and throughout the year, though several such crimes go unreported. According to National Crimes Records Bureau, Government of India, there were over 32,000 murders, 19,000 rapes, 7,500 dowry deaths and 36,500 molestation cases are the violent crimes against women during 2006. While Madhya Pradesh is worst off among the states, the national.

PROBLEMS OF WORKING WOMEN

Working women i.e., those who are in paid employment, face problems at the workplace just by virtue of their being women. Social attitude to the role of women lags much behind the law. The attitude which considers women fit for certain jobs and not others, causes prejudice in those who recruit employees. Thus women find employment easily as nurses, doctors, teachers, secretaries or on the assembly line. Even when well qualified women are available, preference is given to a male candidate of equal qualifications. A gender bias creates an obstacle at the recruitment stage itself. When it comes to remuneration, though the law proclaims equality, it is not always practiced.

 

WORLD HOPE FOUNDATION under its mandate Safe Women - Safe India organises the following programs for the safety of women and protection of children from sexual offences:

  • Advocacy/ Awareness program on Women Rights, Protection and Empowerment 
  • POCSO Training Program in Schools
