Why Women are Blamed for RAPE or Giving Birth to a Girl Child

We live in a culture that not only blames Rapist but also the victims of rape. Many strongly believe that dressing provocatively or flirting and teasing to encourage male attention is the number one reason why RAPE happens. Is it the duty of women to make sure that they are not assaulted? Well it is not, it’s not the duty of women to make sure they are not assaulted sexually, just because they dress provocatively. How often have we heard about the atrocities against woman just because she gave birth to a girl child. We are unfortunately still living in a country where women are blamed for everything, be it rape or even giving birth to a girl. Even in this modern society, many families refuse to let anyone know that a girl child is born, and they try to hide the news. Those others who get to know the news may even convey a message of condolences. Should the mother be blamed for not being capable of delivering a boy? Watch this video to know how ignorant our society is that reveals one of the biggest misconceptions on who is responsible for the sex of the child.

Female infanticide in India has a history spanning centuries, we don’t want it any more. Save Girl Child – The hand that rocks the cradle, the procreator, the mother of tomorrow; a woman shapes the destiny of civilization. Such is the tragic irony of fate, that a beautiful creation such as the girl child is today one of the gravest concerns facing humanity.
