|A Gateway to the Future of Children?|
We all heard what the silly Politicians and so called Keepers of law had to say!
|Knee in Mouth Disease!|
The 5-year-old’s family said the police did not take their complaint seriously, did not search adequately and then tried to bribe them into silence after she was found.
What has happened in the past cannot be changed unless we start DOING lots about a malice which is centuries old.
According to the most comprehensive, representative survey in the United States--the National Violence Against Women Survey: (unfortunately I own no authentic published Indian Data as most of the so called Commissions are famous for merely giving Statements on TV)
- 1 of every 6 women (17.6%) and 1 of every 33 men (3%) have been raped at some time in their lives
- The majority of the victims were younger than 18 years old when they were raped (females - 54%; males - 71%).
- Most disturbingly, many victims were less than 12 years old when they were raped (girls - 21.6%; boys - 48%).
- Girls under the age of 12 were most likely to be victimized by relatives. The girls ages 12 to 17 were more likely to be victimized by intimates and acquaintances. Women were more likely to be raped by intimates.
- Boys and men are more likely to be raped by acquaintances at all ages.
- Continue to educate yourself? Help raise awareness?
- Just one more person YOU can make more AWARE, HELPS!
- One way to increase convictions is for more law enforcement officers and prosecutors to receive specialized training in sex crimes.
- Media attention and community pressure can help push local authorities into pursuing this training if they have not already done so.
- Teach potential victims ways to protect themselves in a manner in which they understand.
- Another method of prevention approach is to reach teen boys and young men before they commit rape. Providing high school age and college age young men with a structured and supportive space to empower themselves about healthy masculinity and redefine male strength.
- A lot has been said about how young women should learn self-defense. They should lock themselves in their houses after dark. They shouldn’t wear short skirts. They shouldn’t leave drinks unattended. Perhaps they shouldn’t dare to get drunk at all. I would prefer not to add anymore to this phenomenon.
- Educate potential perpetrators through anti violence programs. If you are a parent, talk to your children and teens about safety and healthy dating relationships.
