IT HAPPENED TO ME ?!
Are you shouting in the middle of the crowd with nobody to listen to you ??? !!! Well its not surprising , is it ? After all we women are defined as the 'weaker sections of the society' ?
'ACTS ENFORCED TO PREVENT EXPLOITATION OF WOMEN' , 'JUSTICE TO WOMEN' , 'RESPECT WOMEN' ... these terms are confined to books and newspapers.
She is raped on the streets ,she is harassed through social networking sites and cell phones, physical abuse, she cannot walk out of her house because its dark outside, the only time of the day she is not questioned is in the mornings when she leaves for work ... but awesome !!! there is somebody at her workplace too targeting her,harassing her, taking undue advantage of his position.
Its always she who dies , gets locked up at home and above all resigns from work . The 'woman' who is a victim herself is punished always. 'MAN' are you so strong ? so influential ? that no matter what you do , there is always somebody fighting for you or covering up for you.
But the man who is a criminal has people at the top management and sadly other women too covering up for him. The woman has a valid proof , the man has no proof ...just mere words like 'drunk' , 'by mistake' . And he is allowed to roam around like a free bird . By the end of the day the only person who would stand up for the woman is the woman herself.
To all the women out there ... "respect yourself... respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you or makes you happy ... stand up for yourself , fight for yourself and for your justice until your last day " . Respect other women as much as you respect yourself . because today it might be your friend , colleague or neighbour . Tomorrow it might be ''YOU' .Thats when you end up asking yourself " IT HAPPENED TO ME ?! "
YES ...THE MAN WHO HARASSES YOU IS A CRIMINAL ... BUT THE REAL CRIMINALS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO COVER UP FOR THE CRIMINAL !!!
