- A 19-year old woman was brutally raped by four men in Hathras, UP. She later died in the hospital.
- The National Commission for Women (NCW) registered an increase of at least 2.5 times in domestic violence complaints during the nationwide lockdown during the COVID-19 outbreak. Considering that only 15% of the cases are reported, this data is alarming.
- An online chat group — Bois Locker Room — was discovered, in wherein some schoolboys, mostly teenagers, shared messages about gang-raping their classmates and morphing their photographs.
- Women working in a government office with no toilet in Tamil Nadu went to relieve herself in an under-construction building, slipped, fell into the septic tank, and died
- Scotland’s decision to make all period products free set us thinking when India will acknowledge that these are not luxury items, but essentials.
These are some of the news that gathered our attention last year – news that showed how women are considered as the weaker sex, how women are discriminated against, how women’s health and hygiene are still not given priority.
We come across gender bias, inequality, injustice on a regular basis in our lives – some in a brazen manner, some rather subdued. It is time we decide to stand up and decide to call out the discrimination and say – I Challenge to Change
- Being considered lesser than my partner because I am a woman
- Being judged for the clothes I wear
- Being treated differently during my periods
- Being constantly reminded that I am incomplete without a man
- Being denied basic rights and freedom
