Dear Editor,Today, everywhere there is talk of empowering women because empowering women is the most important factor in preserving culture and heritage of any country. But the question arises as to whether a mother can talk about safety of her child even in the 21st century, because in present time the youngest child, the future of India i.e., a young daughter and even an elderly woman like a mother is not safe. It seems that the daughter is neither safe in mother’s womb nor after birth. Such treatment of women in the modern age reflects weaknesses of the functioning of our Governments. Efforts need to be made in this regard. Women not require a sense of security for women, they need protection, not reservations. It will not happen just by passing a bill. Therefore, strict laws should be enacted and cases should be settled as soon as possible and the culprits should be punished, so that fear of law is created in the minds of the people.Today we proudly claim that the status of women has changed a lot. Of course today girls are studying, of course they are doing jobs but what about the mental stress that they endure every day in their home and family, what about the rape that is done by a man with a dirty look. There are only a few things that show the improved condition of a woman. Even today, women face the same discrimination in home, family and society as they did decades ago.Many of my female readers, while giving feedback on my articles, tell me about the domestic abuse they face, the discrimination they face, and how they face bad thinking in society. The plight of most of these women is that we are also taking care of family at home, doing jobs, but still there is daily mental abuse in the home, which hurts the most. Many women are upset that before marriage they were submissive to their father and brother and killed all their desires and dreams within themselves. When they got married, the in-laws did not give them a chance to fulfill their dreams. When to live according to your own? So there are many more such incidents to be seen and heard. When we see such a situation of women, we are sometimes forced to think that is it a crime to be a woman?To dispel this suspicion, we need to change society’s narrow point of view among people regarding women. The biggest contributor to this change is parents and teachers. Parents should teach their sons to respect women and girl from an early age. Treat every woman in house with respect. At home, a woman should not be humiliated by talking and taunting her. Mothers-in-law should be like mothers-in-law for their daughters. The daughters-in-law should prove themselves as daughters, just as daughters do for their mothers. In addition, the new generation should be made aware of the safety and dignity of women in schools and colleges. Laws enacted by Governments should not be delayed.In order to empower a daughter, there should be no discrimination in her upbringing, education, employment opportunities and providing a healthy environment. If we want to make our daughters strong, powerful and successful human beings then we have to take decisions in her favour and take strong steps so that we can give today’s daughters a comfortable environment in which they do not have to worry about, is it a crime to be a woman?Harkirat Kaur,Jammu.
