“All citizens have the right to gather and protest as long as the protest is non violent and peaceable in nature.”
this is from article 20 in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and was later included in the Fundamental Rights of India.
Good Afternoon.i am speaking for the motion that the slut-walk is justified.
The slutwalk is generically a peaceful movement or a kind of protest,in which,people,regardless of gender,race,age and sexual preference come together to protest, not only rape and sexual abuse but against the immensely judgmental society
as well as the objectification of women.
Sexual Abuse, as such, is majorly based on the need to dominate.The society has degraded to such levels…and im sure women around the globe will concur…that we have to think twice before walking out of the house alone,especially at the wee hours…
The “saat chya aat gharat” mentality has prevailed for eons now…and it will definitely continue unless there is drastic change.
Babies,Women in burquas,old women,pre-pubescent little girls and of course…young nubile women…no-one is safe.
We dont tell men;”DONT RAPE!!!!”
We tell women;”DONT GET RAPED!!!”
There is a pathetic 6.5% conviction rate in rape cases..
and the percentage would be lower if we included the women
who never find the necessary courage to face social stigma and report
this heinous crime.
Rape and sexual abuse are not just attacks on the womens body…but also her integrity,
pride,her self-respect and her soul.
No one has the right to claim what is not theirs….
The “slutwalk” is for these people.They want people to be aware!!
To teach their brothers and sons
NOT to be “THAT” guy.
Respect….thats all they seek.
If men..or for that matter Human Beings cannot control themselves,evolution has not done much for us…
Sometimes,women want to provoke attention.They want to be told that they are beautiful…they want admiration…but
They DO NOT want to get raped.
No one asks for it.
