Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon to change the world.” On 19th of October 2018 which was celebrated as Dusshera in India, A festival when the Goodness took over Evil; when Virtues of Ram won the battle against the Vices of Ravan. We at Maitri Manthan was invited to Inox Cinema Udaipur to tell and make the employees aware about a lot of less known facts on Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act, 2013. So we taught them about the Prevention, what is being prohibited in the act and also how the redressal works in our country against it. Spreading awareness about the same to 34 men and 9 women, we got know that even the ratio is lacking, the working environment isn’t. They work with a spirit of togetherness leading to equal achievement for all.
We at Maitri Manthan work towards basic education and women empowerment and in our notion, both go hand in hand. They always teach us to pray a woman but never taught to respect one, so the thoughts that prevail in the society today started nurturing in the same way we see them working and being performed throughout.
In a social culture where we are being sent to good institutes to get a good scoop of education, at the tip of the same cone, we find nothing interesting to satisfy our senses, that’s where the education of Sexual harassment against women are lying. Harassment is a trauma and we can’t even explain how dreadful it is to get through all of it.
Hence to put a full stop on it, we try our best to teach people through our workshops, how not to go against someone’s will but also not against the law and order. Now the law doesn’t pardon your sins, no matter how small they are and Harassment these days in India tops the chart in crime. Get yourself not only a good education but better senses and a fruitful mind of great thoughts. And we urge Women to please stop being Politely angry and saying, ‘Everything is OKAY !’.
