Safety Tips for Women- You Need to Know

Hello girls!

I know I am late to talk about the social issue which every girl is facing in India and feeling unsafe every time, but I’m not that late.

Your Safety Is In Your Hand #BeAlert #BeSafe Because Nation Will Not Save You

I’m before the Indian government and all concerned persons who know how to march on the roads after he raped her. (You might be expecting to read after she is getting raped.)

This is the society where we people even blame a girl when something terrible happens to her instead of educating their boys to learn to behave and respecting the beautiful creature of the world whom we should consider as the Goddess.

So, How safe women are in India?

Safety of the women is the debatable topic of women. It seems like a topic only because there is no solution and implementation has been observed yet. We have seen worst cases of sexual violence like Nirbhaya from Delhi, Dr. Pooja from Hyderabad, Hathras Case and many more but, are we able to stop that?

In light of what ladies may have, could have or have just experienced well being issues in the nation. This prompts a more significant inquiry. What numbers of girls or women have a sense of security to meander around the roads of our country unafraid of being mocked at or face provocation night or day?

Every day we witnessed or read such cases. It’s not just a matter of rape, but there are also other things happening with the girls that are soul-shattering.

 Some of the things which a daughter, sister, girlfriend, or women face every day:

violence-against-women

  1. Inappropriate behavior: Half of the complete number of wrong doings against ladies announced in 1990 identified with attack and provocation at the work environment.
  1. Female child murders and sex particular premature births:This can be viewed as a significant donor of ladies’ violations. Executing a newborn child female, before the delivery can be considered to be the most corrupt of the considerable number of sins that our Sacred Texts may state. As the female-male extent isn’t risen to, it makes India an exceptionally male populated nation.
  1. Settlement:In the year 1997 has expressed that on a yearly premise, 5,000 ladies pass on due to endowment. A portion of these cases has ladies kicking the bucket in a kitchen fire, which is believed to be purposeful. The share related passing are frequently named as ‘lady of the hour consuming.’
  1. Abusive behavior at home:Domestic viciousness in India frequently occurs because of share requests.

What safety measure you should follow?

Your safety is in your hands. So, follow these tips to make yourself feel safer and protected.

  • Always be alert and aware of the people around you and your surroundings if you feel unsafe to walk out immediately. Never ignore your gut feeling and intuition.
  • Are you know warning signs? Always read the symptoms which are indicating of wrongdoings.
  • Never lightly take eve-teasing. Raise voice, make voice. If possible, capture their photos.
  • Say no to late-night travel. I know this is not a good idea and we are feeling to live in a country which is using independent as a word only. But, our safety is in our hands.
  • Road side cabs and buses with no passenger can be a bad option.
  • Never give life to a stranger and wear a helmet.
  • Never open doors for a stranger when you are driving or stop your car.
  • Keep your phone in a safe place when you are traveling at night because attackers always throw the phones first.
  • Always keep some numbers in your speed dials so you can call someone quickly.
  • Once you make a call, start shouting so that without talking, they can understand you are in trouble.
  • Always make sure to have emergency apps on your mobile phones, which will keep sending SMS to people close to you.
  • Always call people when you reached your home correctly, not being outside of the house.
  • If someone is following, either call someone who can come or move towards the crowded place.
  • Always share such incidence to families.
  • Use your knees to hit between the legs of the attacker and finger into the eyes.
  • Kick on the front part and punch on the stomach, or you can target chest area also.
  • Always carry pepper spray or any protecting thing in your bag.
  • If you are in the lift alone with a man and need to go to the top floor, always press the buttons on every level.
  • Always use something to wrap the neck of the driver when he is moving on the way he is not supposed to.

So, girls, these are a handful of tips which can take to make yourself feel protect. Also, share these tips with other girls so that India can be a safe place for girls by girls only. As well as, if you know any other advice, don’t forget to mention in the comment.

    very important tips. there is no place in the world that is truly safe, and so it is better that each person take precautions to ensure their own safety.

  3. Radhika Acharya says: October 19, 2020 at 5:14 pm

    We really need to take these precautions for our own safety. Things have changed but still it’s not 100% safe even in metros.

  8. Shamik says: October 8, 2020 at 1:23 am

    I’m first male reader to write a comment on your post 🙂
    This is a very nicely written post and a much needed one. Seeing the news and incidents everyday about violence against women I really feel ashamed and scared too where is the society heading to.
    Awareness is much needed.
    Thanks for sharing the post.

  9. Geethica Mehra says: October 7, 2020 at 11:54 pm

    I agree that an independent woman is just a word in India. More than men, women feel dependent on the situation. We come on roads for justice but has any of it changed the scenario? Do men fear before raping a girl? Do they fear justice?

  10. Arti says: October 7, 2020 at 6:12 pm

    I belive raising voice is the most important thing and we must use it as a strong weapon

  11. Gunjan Upadhyay says: October 7, 2020 at 4:39 pm

  14. Dipika Singh says: October 7, 2020 at 9:21 am

    I agree to the fact that everyone’s safety is in their own hands. However, women are subjected to abuse even if they are at home. What we really need is – sensitivity in the system and gender biased parenting.

  15. Dr.Amrita Basu says: October 7, 2020 at 8:40 am

    Also boys should be raised better.Stricter punishments at all levels will e a deterrent. There are no easy steps ,but this is helpful.

  16. Ranjini says: October 7, 2020 at 12:06 am

    I think self defence classes have to be made mandatory for girls in schools. Nice tips.

  17. Ginia says: October 6, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    Thank you for writing this post. Im so filled with anger regarding the toxic masculinity wrapped up with patriarchy in our society that I dont trust myself to write in this topic. But it is the sad truth that it is up to us women to be careful rather than expect our country, the land of Sita and Draupadi, to change for the better!

  18. MeenalSonal Mathur says: October 6, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    Staying alert and being vigilant is the key in the life and woman need to take stand against the wrongdoing with confidence.

  20. Varsh says: October 6, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Safety is a matter we indeed need to take in our hands. I strongly suggest girls/women to work on their fitness and learn self-defence.

  21. Manas Mukul says: October 6, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    ‘The need of the hour’ post. Very nicely written covering most of the aspects. Irrespective how the world is out there…till it doesnt get any better women should try to equip themselves for their safety. Just a small friendly suggestion, this background makes the reading a little difficult.

  29. Ritu Bindra says: October 6, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    This is a very important post. Women should defend themselves. Self-defense classes need to be made mandatory at schools. And that gut feeling… should act on it.

  30. Mayuri Nidigallu says: October 6, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    Much needed blogpost now. Women safety is an absolute debatable topic now. So it is up to us to stay alert and be vigilant. #tmmreads

  32. Sonia Dogra says: October 6, 2020 at 4:19 pm

    Learning self defence is extremely important for women. As also, staying aware and alert. You’ve put together an important post.

  33. Modern Gyspy says: October 6, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    Women’s safety has always been in their own hands, and these days things just seem to be getting worse. Nothing beats being aware of your surroundings and having some form of self defense handy – like a pepper spray – as you have so rightly pointed out.

  34. Swati Mathur says: October 6, 2020 at 4:00 pm

    Such an important post..thanks a lot for sharing. As a women god has given us sixth sense but not many of us uses it. So we need to be proactive and should learn some soft of self defence to face the world with confidence.

  35. PraGun says: October 6, 2020 at 4:00 pm

    Great post and good reminder points. Our safety is in our hands and we need to be strong and secure on a personal level. Even if one has not learned self-defense although it’s always recommended but staying alert and acting on time is much required if we find signs of danger.

  36. Harjeet Kaur says: October 6, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    Agree with all the safety measures you have listed but how many girls or ladies follow them even though they know they are at risk? My own daughter doesn’t listen to anything I say.I even bought her a foldable steel road and pepper spray but I don’t think she ever used it. The body should be gender sensitised from birth and its a woman job to do so.Only then can there be any state of freedom for women.

  37. Dipali Bhasin says: October 6, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    You have given some amazing suggestions that I could have never thought about. Sometimes I take the Uber at night from the airport. I’ll keep a scarf always with me after reading the post. I think everyone should read this informative post.

  38. Afreen Ansari says: October 6, 2020 at 3:47 pm

    Now thise are some really interesting and basic points that we mostly tend to ignore. It’s time to follow them all

  41. Anahita Irani says: October 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm

    Really good and practical tips for all women who travel at night. In fact, I avoid traveling at night, but if the need arises I always carry a pepper spray

  42. Pooja Priyamvada says: October 6, 2020 at 11:30 am

    Yes women need to be alert about their safety but society can’t be let off their responsibility too. All the best for My Friend Alexa.

  43. Mayura Amarkant says: October 6, 2020 at 11:27 am

    Well-timed post! Some extremely useful tips for women especially in the wake of the rising atrocities against us across the country.

  44. Jyoti Jha says: October 6, 2020 at 11:21 am

    It is but quite unfortunate that one can never be late or early in discussing women safety, especially in our country. It has been an ever growing concern.
    These are some helpful tips you have penned down so well.

  45. Yogita Joshi says: October 6, 2020 at 11:13 am

  46. Jenifer says: October 6, 2020 at 10:58 am

    Very useful guidance which should b followed. Also, I would like to add that basic sex education should be given to kids right from the start in school & home.
