Let's put an end....

I am blissful that our world pulse organization has announced a campaign for the eradication of gender based violence. This story is going to be in Indian context. A trajic incident took place recently. An intermediate studying, 17 year girl was brutally murdered by a jilted lover.shockingly this crime was committed by a law studying student. The country side women in India are murdered and tortured in the greed of getting dowry and women are even accused of giving birth to a baby girl although it's not mistake. The gender based violence in India starts from the birth of the girl child itself. I think this issue can be resolved only by educating the people, proper parenting and including the gender based violence in the curriculum right from the primary school  itself. As nothing lasts long, let's hope that one fine day nearby  this gender based violence also ends .

Hi Jahnavi,
I'm sorry to hear of this horrible account, and how the lives of girls are devalued. I agree that education on GBV is the only long-term solution not only in India but across the world. I hope that one day women will be valued and celebrated. Thank you for highlighting the problem and the likely solution. Sending you a Christmas cheer :-)

Hello, Jahnavi,

It's heartbreaking that the life of a 17-year-old girl is cut short due to crime. It's appalling that more women in India are experiencing gender-based violence in all ages. I agree! Gender-based violence should be taught in primary school. Thank you for speaking up about this issue. We stand with you!
