Tools for Safety of Women

Women face many risks…

Unfortunately, crimes against women occur in India in humongous numbers, as can be noted from stories in daily newspapers. Delhi has gained the infamous distinction as the ‘rape capital of India’. The situation in other metros like Mumbai and Bangalore is not much different.

Harassment of women by men occurs on the street, in offices, in buses/trains and in parks. It takes the forms of stalking, passing lewd comments, groping, abusing etc. Particularly vulnerable are single girls and women while they are outdoors.

While recent tightening of laws pertaining to rape and stalking would have a deterrent effect on culprits, it is always advisable for women to be on guard and to be equipped with safety tools.

Tools for safety of women…

We list below some tools that ladies can make use of to ensure safety while outdoors. Most common are the apps for smartphones which indicate your location details to your family, when facing a threat or danger. Pepper spray can neutralise an attacker. All these tools will minimise the risks and hopefully bring about a reduction in the crimes committed against women. Let us hope that a day will dawn when women will be safe in every place in India!
