Eve-teasing mainly refers to sexual harassment. It also involves teasing a woman orally, physically, mentally and sexually. There are a number of reasons which work behind it. Firstly, lack of positive attitudes towards women can be diagnosed. People are not found to show respects to women in a male-dominated society like Bangladesh.
As a result, women face various types of unpleasant comments on their way to schools, offices and their respective workplaces. Secondly, practicing vulgar culture is one of the dominant causes of this teasing. This is, it is known to all, the age of globalization and globalization always attempts to show free flow of satellite TV. With the touching touch of it, our young generation gets used to watching obscene films and display which ultimately stimulates them. Thirdly, our education system also works as a catalyst.
It encourages the learners to do cramming. Students can hardly enjoy the extra-curricular activities due to the huge pressure of cramming. Besides these, mixing with evil company, wearing erotic dresses worn by women, drug addiction, unemployment problem, illiteracy, discriminatory social system, lack of consciousness among the guardians are also the remarkable causes leading to this existing malady.
The effects of eve-teasing beggar description. It drags a woman towards a dark world. Women get frustrated and cannot hesitate even to commit suicide. So, ruination of a life is not a loss for a woman only. Rather, the whole family as well as the nation remain insecure.
To stop the eve-teasing, social awareness is a must because prevention is better than cure. Not only that, moral education should be incorporated into the academic syllabus. The eve-teasers must be given heavy penalty. Most importantly, guardians must play a pivotal role in the effective process of socialization. And, last of all, our positive attitude towards women can stop eve-teasing ensuring them a safe-abode as well as a safe-world to live in.
