Eve-teasing: A bane of Indian women

Wearing jeans is now-a-days common among college students. Eve-teasing is something that a woman has to contend with everyday. The laughing and passing lewd remarks of an eve teaser can leave a permanent psychological mark on a woman. Eve-teasers feel that they are doing nothing wrong- having some fun. Women on the other hand are made to feel vulnerable and the weaker sex. One should bear in mind that it is not only men responsible for this to some extent women are also responsible. A little bit of courage by girls can set right all the things. We all today just say big things, women liberation, women empowerment, women equality etc but steps are taken for achieving these objectives. Banning any clothing will certainly never solve the issue of sexual harassment. Eve teasers need to be whipped then and there. Until then, the problem will persist. It is the joint responsibility of parents and the colleges to ensure safety of girls.  We need to change ourselves. Redefine our moral Code of Conduct.
