Because there aren't just enough words to describe the magnitude of sexual violence against women around the globe. #MeToo
That feeling when the judiciary of your country doesn't understand consent.
This is the true story of three women (names changed) who applied to work at a unisex salon and were pressurised into performing sexual services.
CSE covers a range of issues in an age and stage appropriate manner. It benefits people of all ages, genders and sexual identities!
Hardly any schools in India implement comprehensive sexuality education in their curriculum. Issues of puberty, relationships, gender roles and body image are issues that all children and young people struggle with, but which are ignored in their formal education.
Alternative menstrual products like cloth pads and menstrual cups last for years. They don't require disposal, thus saving the word from tonnes of sanitary waste.
We all know the layers and layers of secretive packaging that sanitary pads are wrapped in to hide the shame and stigma associated with periods. This plastic waste only adds to #ThePadEffect
We're expected to look a certain way, to have a certain body type. But every body is different, just like every person is different. No body is more beautiful than the other. So love and embrace your body, however it looks, it's absolutely fine.
Women are judged for everything, including their right to say yes or no. Ultimately, it is a woman's right, as much as it is a man's, to say yes or no, and she should be able to do it without the fear of being judged and shamed. Let's stop the slut shaming, and let's stop saying "friend-zone".
Yogi Adityanath's Anti-Romeo Squads aren't helping, but harming. It doesn't protect women from sexual harassment but only curb women's right to love and of course, to prevent "love jihad"! Another way to stop empowerment.
