LOCALITY TO PROTEST EVE TEASING 

Tofazzal Hossain, Local Correspondent, BHOLA, April 16 : A young girl of class 9 fell victim to Eve Teasing in Bhola on April 11, 2015 while she was on her way to the school. Some local miscreants waylaid the girl on her way.

The girl screamed to help her, but none rushed to the scene to her help. Sources said the boys known in the area as culprits. They can do anything in broad daylight. So, none could venture to protest them.

The criminals threw bad comments and heavy breathing to the girl. They used to tease her while she was going to and coming from the school. The parents of the girl rescued her from the spot. The filed and general diary with the local police station.

Eve Teasing is a social malady these days. It is a form of harassment of young girl. It aggravates social values and customs too. Eve Teasing is a matter of great concern for the civil society.

Eve Teasing, as we call it, is men’s street sexual harassment or molestation of young women who travel their own streets to and from work, school or their assorted tasks. In the male dominated society of Bangladesh, this Eve Teasing has mostly been ignored. These teasers, who have nothing better to do, have the decency of their souls sold out to the devils of disrespect towards women. This particular issue needs a recipe for change because Eve Teasing leaves a huge impact in both our individual and national life.

Victimized women and girls do not only get psychologically troubled, but also continuously feel insecure to go outside their homes. They develop a sense of disbelieve and humiliation against men. In fect, within the patriarchal social fabric, Eve Teasing is a weapon to weaken, hurt or force women to consign to domestic affairs. It evidently restricts the mobility of women and girls, which is unquestionably a threat to women’s empowerment. All together, through apparently invisible, the cost of Eve Teasing is huge at our national and individual life in Bangladesh.

Along with that, in Bangladesh, it has gradually become brutal form of sexual harassment often resulting in grievous hurt, abduction, acid throwing, rape, murder and forced suicide. Eve Teasing, though, had been previously considered under the VAW reports of BNWLA since 2000, but from 2005, the organization has declared crusade against Eve Teasing and published a poster trying to bring this matter into the limelight and held various discussions, meetings and event held a press conference to create awareness as well. In 2004-05, the Bangladeshi women’s group, Mahila Parishad distribute a poster and conducted a campaign against Eve Teasing because several young women, students, and even young girls committed suicide owing to social pressures-shame-daily harassment. In 2010, a news organization reported 45 suicide deaths in the last four years.

So, for making a better world, we have to stop Eve Teasing by establishing a proper law or powerful law. Otherwise it’s may not be possible to make a ‘HAPPY BANGLADESH’ because women are obvious part of our society while eve teaser should be abandoned.
