There are many rights in our constitution that are made for our welfare , which provides us security. And for women’s, there are many rights which protect them from being exploited and provide protection to them. But there are many women in our India who do not know about their rights and because of which they continue to be exploited and are victims of violence.
Some of the Basic rights of women are:-
The Dowry Prohibition Act, 1961 (28 of 1961) (Amended in 1986)
The Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, 1986
The Commission of Sati (Prevention) Act, 1987 (3 of 1988)
Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005
The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (PREVENTION, PROHIBITION and REDRESSAL) Act, 2013
The Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013
These are some common right women should know. If the women of the village do not know about all these, then it becomes our responsibility to explain to them about their rights and how they can protect themselves from all these oppressions. The people of the village do not have a mobile nor do they have enough resources to know about them all. We got to know that it is our responsibility that we have to call them affair but how ? The first and easiest way is to go to those women. We should also find out who are those who are struggling with such problems like domestic violence in the village area, are being molested . Talking to women and convincing them that the government has put out the rules for their safety and they do not need to go, they need to raise their voice, they need to get courage about it. The most successful medium is an NGO ; NGO is a tool that is supported by both the police and the government, no one else can speak against it. Through the NGO we can meet a woman who wants to help others. Gathering and then helping that person, motivating her that she should raise his voice against the injustice done to her. By seeing such people together, the man would not even dare to say anything.
Nukkad Natak is also a very good medium with the help of which we can explain to women about their rights and with the help of Nukkad Natak, we can reach out to as many people as possible. Like how they have to raise their voice against the atrocities on women, from whom they have to seek help and whether the procedure is to be followed by them. We can also ask women about their rights through advertisement, through this , we can explain to them that if you are a victim of any kind of exploitation, then call this number now . We all know nowadays how crazy people are in the movies TV life, we can make such a movie in which women are fighting for their rights, how they have to protect themselves .
These are common ways with which we can explain to a woman about her rights and there is also hope that through these she understands our point of fighting for her rights and in this she sees that there are other women who have fight for there right she feels motivated .But all will happen only if we explain to the women that the rules of the society that they live absolutely wrong, their life will be ruined by handling all these rules, they will have to learn to live for themselves not for all these things. We have to convince them for , how they can raise their voice for themselves and for their rights and how they have to get out of all these rules and all these wrong elements.
