It’s so sad that again and again we have to write the same thing and then for a week or two everyone is aggressive, raising their voices for crimes against women.
Well let me start by saying that patriarchy is so deep rooted that even I cannot fight for the rights the constitution gives me, that is equal share in my father’s inheritance etc, for women are always manipulated, by the manipulative family members by using all cards for example, ‘you will rot in hell if you disrespect your parents.’ Surely I agree but imagine how most girls grow up to respect this kind of behaviour. If the girl tries to ask for her pound of inheritance, she’s considered a bad girl with no morals, relatives even blame the husband by fabricating all sorts of malicious stories. Nobody stops to acknowledge the blatant disrespect and disregard of the constitution.
In a society like ours where a woman has to fight her own blood to get her rightful constitutional right, how can we expect people to have spine to speak against workplace harassment?
#TanushreeDutta for example, I have been reading such terrible accusations against the poor girl, women calling her a whore, a veteran actor like Mr Bachchan avoids speaking up. Where is justice?
The same Mr Bachchan played the role of a lawyer in movie Pink and he narrated this famous dialogue and I quote, ‘NO MEANS NO.
These boys must realise, ‘No’ ka matlab ‘No’ hota hai. Use bolne wali ladki koi parichit ho, friend ho, girlfriend ho, koi s*x worker ho ya apki apni biwi hi kyu na ho. ‘No’ means ‘No’. And when someone says so you STOP!’
