Raju Kumar commented on Stopping Violence Begins at Home

"Stopping violence begins at home" is a very good initiative of Action India for creating a equitable society for future not in India only but across the globe, if it is supported by society and the respective government. The three elements of the this program provide a conducive environment at different level of action to empower women in this patriarchy based society where women and girl child (mainly female sex) are suffering from physical and mental violence since their birth. In India the birth of male child is celebrated with joy in all section of society and in this process some women of the family also play a role. In some cases it has been seen that some women of a family always use abusing language against a woman who delivers girl child. Therefore changes in attitude is also important in women mind also for the successful of this mission. In this concern I would like to give some suggestions which are following:-
1. In the case as discussed above, this type of women who support inequality in between male and female and prefer male child over the female child should be made aware about the negative implication of her behavior through different type of program.
2. In our country there are sufficient law regarding domestic violence but the main problem is not proper implementation of the law and slow rate of delivery of justice by the judicial system of India. Therefore I want to suggest that much more NGO's, civil society, and activists etc. should come together to make pressure on government to make a crucial judicial reform as soon as possible for accelerated delivery of justice.
3. The second element of the program about gender sensitivity through education is very important for future society. In this concern NCERT and other state agencies which design course material for students in India should work together and develop books for the students from basic class.
