Eve Teasing Issue:

Every 5 minutes a woman is sexually harassed. Every 2 minutes one woman is molested. Eve teasing is something that she has to contend with every day.

Well, most women are of the opinion that they have to equip themselves to handle the situation efficiently. According to most learning, an art of self-defence is the best way. Hence, martial arts training centres have mushroomed in the cities. Many times, it is found that women are blamed for becoming victims of eve teasers. “The woman must have asked for it” or “she is dressed to invite trouble.” It is important that our girls be brought up with enough self-esteem to deal with comments like this.

Another reason that keeps women from taking action is fear. They are afraid that this will breed further enmity, which will prove to be dangerous. Now the million-dollar question is will law alone be able to stop eve teasing? The answer is an absolute no. The only way it can be stopped is by encouraging women to retaliate against eve teasers fearlessly. This will only be possible when she gets wholehearted support from the community.
