More than 370,000 cases of crimes against women were reported in 2020, as per the Government of India. In 2021, there was a 30 per cent rise in complaints of crimes against women. These are not just statistics, this is an eye-opener for all of us that should alarm us about the crimes that women are facing against them which increase every day. There are many instances of violence that go unreported in India. So just imagine the rate of crime against women in India.
It becomes very important to make women more aware of their rights because in the end if a woman knows her rights, she can stand up for herself and would not need anyone to speak up for herself. So as responsible human beings we need to encourage women to stand up for themselves.

Some ways are:

1. Education- A woman who is educated can tackle any situation. If a woman who is educated sees an uneducated woman. She should help her to get educated. This will be for the betterment of our future.

2. Raise your voice- As women, we need to make some noise about the issues, call others out when they make insensitive or ill-informed comments, and help amplify the voices of women around the globe.

3. Volunteer in events- When women volunteer or participate in events that educate or promote women’s rights then they can learn through it and hence can apply it in their own lives.

4. Encourage- A woman should encourage another woman. When in difficulty, a woman who has already tackled the situation should guide the others who are in the same situation. Women uplifting women is the need of the hour.
