With the recent BBC documentary on Nirbhaya case going viral, its clear that violence on women is unpredictable and safety is a concern in our society. Though we often talk about women empowerment, are we ensuring safety to women in our country? Can a lady secure herself from group attacks on a lonely street? Today most of the urban woman are family breadwinners, some try to adapt to urban lifestyle to improve their financial curve and some fancy having an urban style to support their career choice. Erratic work schedules make it difficult for most women to stick to a definite work time. Centuries ago in India women were confined to the four walls of their house. Not that women in rural India were and are still safe; crime is prevalent now and was centuries ago as well. There is nothing wrong in being self-dependant and living your own dreams, and also, why not learn techniques that can come handy in potential hostile situations?
Being self-equipped to handle offenders
Women those days had no choice but to keep silent during crimes. Besides self-defence techniques such were at a nascent stage and handful of women would join such classes in the belief that they would not be victims to such dreadful crimes. Todays urban women cannot take any situation for granted, now with the rise in such crimes in the nation. Moreover with options such as self-defence workshops especially for women, corporate self-defence workshops and various fitness centres specializing into martial arts to help women survive crimes and promote their safety, why not reap the benefits?
Apart from making you aware of simple self-defence tricks and techniques, such workshops can empower you psychologically if you were to fall trap for such violent acts.
