Just take a moment to look around. Women are not safe anywhere. Whether it’s their workplace or their own houses.
As women enter a workplace they are already entering an unequal landscape that has been traditionally believed to be ruled by men. There is prejudice treatment against them at the time of hiring. They are judged on the basis of their marital status. They are even paid much less than men despite being on the same position and doing the same kind of job. Pay raise or training opportunities are some other issues faced by women at work. They are often denied promotions being labelled as ‘women’- inefficient than men. All these practices preaches the idea of a women limited to being a mere ‘housewife’ serving her family. But there exists much bigger problems. The problem of their safety. Women at workplace often encounter sexual harassment which have now become so common that often women tend to ignore such treatments and do not report it due to the lack of support.
What we can to do to stop such incidents is have knowledge of our rights and duties. Men needs to be taught that women are to be respected, to be treated an equal and not be a treated as a toy. On the other hand, women needs to be made aware of their rights, they need to learn the facts and the prevalence. We must strive for equality and together fight for the injustices done to women.
