When we talk about crime the first thing that comes in your mind is a crime against women, mostly whatever big tragedy we hear about the crime, is related to rape, abducting a girl child, the murder of a girl child, human trafficking, and many more. Every year the cases of crime against women have been increasing rapidly, there is no fall in the graph.
This is not just about India, there are several countries and I’ll say almost every country is facing such brutality, but crime needs punishment and the punishment of other countries have controlled the criminal to step forward.
People have the mentality that India is the only country who faces this behavior, injustice against women but this is not true to every country is fighting for one or the other thing and there is no place where we’ll say women are 100% safe and which is wrong there should be insurance for the safety.
Someone needs to bring light on this and raise awareness about increasing crime as, when some case or incident happens we just watch it in news or read it somewhere but then nothing happens. So, we need to realize that awareness is really important, as well as some assistance to make women protect themselves. When people will know about it then they will do something about it, this doesn’t mean that we already don’t know, we do but we don’t take any action on it.
25th of November is celebrated as International day for eliminating the crime against women. This day supports the moments that happen for women, the United Nations General Assembly has established this. The belief of the day is to put forward attention to the fact that women around the nation are prone to rape, domestic violence, and other forms of violence.
History of this Day
This date was established to honor the Mirabal sisters, three political activists from the Dominican Republic who were brutally slaughtered in 1960 by the ordinance of the nation’s leader, Rafael Trujillo (1930-1961).
Likewise, one of the goals of the day is to bring out that the hierarchy and real nature of the topic are constantly concealed.
