Violence against women is major social anarchy in our society. the main reason behind this is a degradation of moral values and the influence of explicit behavior on our young generations. That’s why we must teach the youth to respect and raise them as human beings first! If we show respect, we will teach respect. This means when we are treating others with respect, our younger generation will eventually grow a habit of showing respect towards others. It means they will remain aware of the rights of the women and will refrain from anything that deprives the women of their deserved rights. And, a society can only be progressive when it can show proper respect and admiration to all the people irrespective of gender.
Steps you can take to prevent violence against women
- Identify the act of violence. If you suspect that someone close to you is violent, you should carefully analyze how the person treats you. If you still aren’t sure if this treatment constitutes violence, discuss the issue with a trusted friend or family member.
- Don’t treat acts of violence as normal. When someone makes destructive comparisons about us, pushes us, controls our actions, etc., this is violence. If you experience or witness this type of behavior, it’s time to take action. Justifying or minimizing abuse will only allow it to continue and quite possibly get worse.
- Look for support. When women suffer from violence of any sort, it’s important that we look for support in the right place. This means turning to people who will listen to us and take our situation seriously, without judgement. Having support plays a major part in finding the courage and tools to face the situation.
- Be a strong woman. This is often easier said than done, but it’s not impossible. The key is finding the strength to make the decision to break free. We need to recognize and admit when we’re suffering violence and find the way out.
- Seek psychological help. When someone endures a violent situation, it’s normal for this to take its toll on their self-esteem. Women who suffer violence often feel insecure and downtrodden. Psychological treatment can help us recover the self-confidence we lost.
- Research all you can about violence against women. We have a better chance of putting a stop to violence against women if we’re informed. This not only helps us protect ourselves, but also friends and family members that may also be suffering violence.
- If you witness any type of violence, report it. This is one of the most important ways to prevent violence against women. If you notice any sort of violent attitude, don’t remain silent.
- Educate your children about how they should treat others and be treated. It’s important that we also take steps to give our children a better future. Both girls and boys need to learn to treat others with dignity and respect – and demand the same.
