  1. Where women are without fear UBHODEEP

  2. A recent survey by Thomson Reuters Foundation found that India is the most dangerous country for women. In this poll, India ranks below Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia and Saudi Arabia on the six issues surveyed healthcare, access to economic resources and discrimination, customary practices, sexual violence, non-sexual violence and human trafficking. The government has rejected the findings. In reality, these are issues that every woman has faced directly or indirectly UBHODEEP


  4. Despite all the talk about development and superpower dreams, we continue to deny our girls and women their share at home, in the community, in society and in public life. patriarchal society with intrinsic structures of discrimination against girls and women -journey of a female is marked by discrimination from birth to death Discrimination against girls begins even before birth Census of 2011 highlights the sex ratio at 940 with states like Haryana at a shocking 877 girls to 1000 boys, UBHODEEP

  5. The PCPNDT law has made little impact on the preference for a male child in our society and girls continue to be killed in the womb Other Issues... Although primary education enrolment figures have improved, dropout of girl children remains an issue. Male privilege norms ensure that families prefer to spend on boys' education rather than on girls. High incidence of under-age girls being pushed into marriage owing to poverty,lack of income avenues and sometimes conservative mindsets UBHODEEP

  6. So, girls are caught up in the vicious cycle of no education, early marriage, early motherhood, domestic violence, drudgery of family and low paying work orse for girls fro Dalit, minority, tribal or poor backgrounds UBHODEEP

  7. The state mechanism has failed to check the rising incidence of sexual violence in society. Our capital city has come to acquire a reputation on rape. Regular instances of politically connected persons indulging in sexual violence. The hypocrisy of the political class is evident in the way the women's reservation bill has been kept pending for decades Instances where elected representatives and religious leaders have openly espoused patriarchal and misogynist views UBHODEEP

  8. Leader in that state suggested that Muslim women can overcome the issue of triple talaq by becoming Hindu. Such utterances undermine the Muslim women's movement Clear view in the present cabinet against a law on marital rape. This can be owing to the political ideology that considers marriage a sacred bond or "janam janam ka bandhan ". nt of inter-faith couples must stop forthwith and society must respect the choices of women. Our cities have become increasingly unsafe for women despite the Smart Cities campaign Unsafe buses and trains S. UBHODEEP

  9. Sexual violence during communal riots and violence against Dalit womer goes largely unpunished. Various surveys suggest that work participation of women has gone down during the last decade in India discrimination in wages for women as well as sexual harassment at the workplace. Women across economic backgrounds do not have autonomy over how to spend their earnings. Other issues like trafficking of girls, criminalisation of sexual minorities, denial of women's share in property. UBHODEEP

  10. Any discussion on how to fight patriarchy has to account for the fact that the perpetrator is often within The few women who make it to influential positions against all odds get outweighed by the omnipresent and dominant patriarchal forces. Focus on how to build a society where women are equal citizens It is a task that demands sustained action at multiple levels, governmental as well as civil society. UBHODEEP
