Women’s Security





The subject of Women’s Security has been on fire these days. It has always been a concern for many people and communities around the world. It becomes apparent when we look at those various incidents taking place around the world, wherein the identity of woman has been misunderstood by a few individuals in the society and an attempt to harm a woman’s social status has been made.
Recent incident of gang-rape in Delhi, the capital of India, has aggravated the subject of women’s security which was somewhere buried under the soil. The protest march and demands of the people who have been picketing outside the India Gate have also forced the governments to once again think upon the laws that claim protection to women in the society. Delhi is not the only state where such an incident has taken place. The statistics available online are horrifying and horrifying enough to force a person to think “In what kind of society am I living in and in which direction will it turn in near future.”
In such a situation, we all will think that the governments should do something to tackle this global issue. Some law or some kind of reform must be brought in to put a stop on such incidents.
But here what we need to realize is that the government and its enacted law alone is not sufficient enough to protect a woman. These laws can instil fear within the minds of the criminals, but is that it! ? What’s the use of the law if the basic mindset of an individual in the society is not changing? The basic mindset and the basic values of an individual needs to be shaken from the roots.
Man and woman complement each other and hence situations can become dreadful if either of the gender becomes overpowering or develops a false belief of superiority over the other. Woman might not be having enough physical strength compared to man, but that alone does not proclaim a man as superior.
The day the society learns these values, that day the dream of women’s security will be achieved in reality. Thus in real sense, it is the society rather than the government which needs to think about bringing in a change in the direction of women’s security.
