 By this story I want to put light on the crimes on girls in India . They are facing physical and mental abuse as well.  Even after enactment of various laws the situation is getting worsen. Many of the girls are suppressed in addressing their grievances. World pulse have given a platform to address the issues.  Hope this reaches every nook and corner of the world. 

This story was submitted in response to My Voice, Our Equal Future.

Hi Jahnavi,
I'm deeply sorry about what is happening in India and many other emerging economies right now. The narrative must change. It is appalling that the abuse has continued in spite of the laws. Nobody is afraid of the law more often because the lawmakers themselves don't live by example and are undoubtedly insincere with the implementation. It's so sad that things are getting worse. Hence, I applaud you for raising your voice, as that is the way to ensure that the injustice against women does not last forever. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic lock-down increased all kinds of abuse against women, hence we must continue to raise our voices like you have just done by sharing your first post on World Pulse.

Together, we can!

Congratulations and a warm welcome to the sisterhood! 'Nice to have you join us.

Keep writing and shining.

Love and hugs,
E. J.

I think you are unaware of the situation in India . In recent times the rape cases in India are increasingly day by day and very few of the cases are reported to the public in concern to the family's reputation as well as political influence. Even the journalism lost its value.Thats why I have mentioned that voices are being suppressed.Because of this situation what can the laws and judiciary do?

I do understand and I'm aware, Sis. Hence, it is a really sad situation. Many other sisters from India have been raising their voices here too. 'Glad that you have joined. We would eventually be heard. We would not be weary.

Stay safe and sparkly,
E. J.

Hello Jahnavi,
Welcome to World Pulse. It is disheartening how the law keeps failing to protect women, not only in your country but in other countries as well. Thank you for raising your voice On World Pulse in hope to be heard. That is the first step to creating change. And we hear you.
Keep sharing and creating awareness.
