Womenlines presents a talk show ‘Let’s erase Domestic Violence’.This talk show aims to share various ways to prevent domestic violence from our society across the globe. In this episode, Archana Mittal, a Therapist/Counsellor/Social Worker from India is sharing about her petition to Introduce Women’s Rights as a Subject in School to Erase Domestic Violence Sign the Petition! http://chng.it/wSv524XL!
Let’s support Archana in getting the initiative of introducing ‘Women’s Rights’ as a subject in Schools. In her words-
Violence against women occurs throughout her life – from before she is born, infancy, childhood, adolescence, and till adulthood. Most of the data are believed to be unreliable as many cases go unreported.Archana Mittal
Legislative changes by itself would not suffice because violence against women is a deep-rooted social problem. Lack of awareness, not knowing her rights, and the fear of getting hurt often prevent women from taking any action. Starting at the ground level, gender sensitisation by parents and teachers is needed to sensitise children. Building a strong foundation and learning about their rights early on in life will help recognise and avoid domestic violence from a very young age. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men experience domestic violence by the time they are adults. I want these statistics to be a thing of the past. By providing education in schools about topics related to domestic violence, schools can help prevent incidents and create a culture where domestic violence is no longer such common behaviour in our society. That is why I am addressing this petition to the Ministry of Education and Women and Child Welfare, asking them to introduce women’s rights as a subject in schools, to help address concepts from an early age, and erase domestic violence. There is a need for both men and women to understand this problem, and work together to eradicate it. Sign my petition.
It’s time we Educate To Erase!
