Adoption of female staff is really not the solution to stop sexual harassment. In school and colleges by having only female staff that doesn’t mean students are safe and will not face any kind of problems or sexual harassment. Female staff is also not fully safe for students their are still female who beat students and give them mental torture. Firstly we need to understand that adoption of female staff is not the solution rather than we need to help such students who are going through sexual harassment by any of male or female staff. To stop sexual harassment of female students we need to find solution that how can she protect herself while going through sexual harassment. Female students should get self-defense training from school onwards so that atleast she can protect herself by not getting victim of sexual harassment. And school and college must see to that teachers are well educated and have good background towards childrens so that in some percent their will less fear of female students getting victims of sexual harassment. And their should be cctv cameras at each place in school and college so that we can help her to not get victim of sexual harassment. These solution may help to stop sexual harassment through which female students are going through. But adoption of female staff and stop having male staff that is not solution. Someday this female has to face with all the situation when they will work at different places for job then everywhere we don’t have policy to stop male staff. Rather than we need to have permanent solution for female students by giving them security and by having their own power like learning self-defense it will definitely help female students. Self-defense will not only help them in school and college but in future also while travelling to different places for job they can protect herself.
