Why Violence to Women?

These days, there are frequent news about rape, sexual harassment and attack on girls. Girls are victim all the time. Even though they are doing their best on their own, people of criminal minds are not tolerating it. For those rapist and criminals there should be the punishment. There has to be a justice to all including girls (it covers child to women).  But we will have to look at the socio-economic, culture and our level of thinking to what happens to our daughter, mother, and sisters in our country Nepal. Why such kinds of violence are happening in our region? How can we prevent them? What are our roles to stop those kinds of violence? There are issues which come on the ground these days. There is a death of a 7 year old girl after she was a victim of rapist. It brings the demand of death penalty for such criminals. But will it help to stop the violence? For this we need to look at other countries which are implementing death penalty and still facing the problems. Our neighbor India can be the example. There are sad and bad news every day about such events. We need to look at our social values, and need to change it, if it will still bias to the women. Changing the law cannot stop such activities but changing our thought can be helpful.  I will continue to write about this issue in the future as well.
