Jus Dicere is organizing a National Writing Competition in an effort to provide a forum to discuss the various facets of Indian Laws towards Women Safety.
Everyday is Women’s Day, March 8 is just when we acknowledge it a little more.
Women play different roles in your life and the world wouldn’t be the same without them, nothing would exist. Each woman is different and plays different roles professionally, but what remains common is that at the end of the day, no matter what her professional roles are, there are personal roles that she plays irrespective. The role of a care-giver, the role of a protector, the role of being your home in a single person, the warmth, the radiance, the comfort that only she can bring.
The question we urge to ask today is do we give her the respect and protection she deserves? Have we as a society reached the point where our women are able to realise their full potential without any dogmas pulling them down.
We invite submissions on Indian Laws and Indian Society: Sufficient to Save Our Women? This encompasses everything that we as a society through our laws and authorities do for the women of our country. From ensuring their good health to ensuring their freedom to choose how to live, from their right to education both primary and higher to being able to work in a secure environment free from the fear of harassment and where the things that define her womanhood i.e. the ability to give birth, or the fact that she bleeds for it one cycle every month does not come before her talent and capabilities.
These submissions should include how far the laws in India and the spirit of judiciary have come to stand by the women of the country and what more needs to be done in this regard. We invite Original Ideas with Pragmatic Solutions in around 1000 words.
