Women Harassment in public is a question..........

3rd November 2012, Saturdays I saw few girls holding a rally in awareness of fighting against sexual harassment in Tripureshwar. I was happy as well as surprised.

I guess being a man I cannot even imagine the effects of harassment but one can seriously look into consequence and past practice where people have committed suicide.
Right now when we are receiving billions of dollars in the name of Women empowerment and leadership how effective is it for the girls at grassroots level to feel in such a way. Isn't it a joke that we are trying to cater leadership in a society where a girl fails to identify herself.  What empowerment and leadership are we talking about when she can’t even move around freely ?

The Drinking and drive campaign by traffic police proves that the government can do anything so just like that why can’t they make it instant actions to be taken for women harassment perpetrator. Don’t we have the infrastructure? Or people to deal with the situation?

I believe if this thing was enforced women would feel independent and she could travel and move around with ease and that would be an achievement……
