Eve Teasing is a cancer of the society. It is a mindset in which the men show their supremacy. A woman, weak, helpless and crying out provides the eve teasers with a perverse pleasure which is both sickening and tragic.
So, What Can Be Done To Prevent Eve Teasing?
It is of course true that strong laws and punishment are an effective deterrent but that is not enough. The eve teasers should not just be punished but the law should prevent such crimes.
The mindset of the society has to change. This can be done when women are treated with respect and as true equals to the men. The schools can play a very major role in sensitizing young adults about the need to treat the women with respect.
The trauma faced by an eve teased victim should be explained and if need be shown with the help of short films, plays and talk shows. True accounts of eve teased victims and the negative impact on them should be highlighted.
In their homes too, the male and the female child should be treated as equals. It is the responsibility of parents to fulfill their duty towards the family and society by providing the right values to the children, especially the boys.
Besides, all of us have to stop being mute witnesses to such crimes. We must stand up and speak and act against this menace. The punishment given to the eve teasers should be strong enough so that it sets an example for…...

The feminists explicitly call it little-rape. From the time immemorial, in nature, men have luckily found themselves physically stronger than women. And most probably, this priceless discovery of men helped much lead them, over years, to attain a platform which provided them with a conceptual license to think themselves superior to and worth ruling on women. I suppose, this was the starting point since when women had been blessed with thousands of ways including being sexual harassed. Long later in 1960s, this treatment, with the name eve teasing, broke into media and brought public to attention in India. In the following years, eve teasing grew faster in the Indian subcontinent and unfolded many different virtues like acid throwing, rapes, and even enforcement of girls’ committing suicide. The term eve teasing, if closely observed, is formulated with EVE and TEASE, where eves (females) are though to tempt males for nasty comments, which ironically means - women are the main cause of their sufferings, and males, on the other hand, performs their duty only.

Eve of the 21s

...Eve of the 21st century CE Mark Twain, in his Diaries of Adam and Eve, published in May 2000, depicts the day-to-day life of the predecessors of mankind in the form of a journal said to be “translated from the original manuscript”. Adam’s diary begins with his encounter with Eve, that irritating, way too talkative creature with a tendency to name things, following him around. Eve is changing the sights of Eden, that she alas baptized “Niagara falls Park”(Twain, 365). After the fall, Adam eventually learns to appreciate the company of his female companion and ends up falling for her, saying “wherever she was, there was Eden” (377). Eve’s diary recounts her discovery of Eden and Adam, and her growing love for him. Human love, replacing that of God, appears as a feeling that does not need an Eden, a feeling that is in itself a redemption. Throughout the excerpts, an image of the two characters can be shaped but also an image of their respective genders’ roles, behaviors and understanding of love… To what extent does the portrayal of Eve in the extracts apply to the expectations for women today? Millenniums later, some of these expectations may have not changed a lot, but some fundamental changes in the way women are perceived did occur. To begin with, Eve is quite the sensitive kind, and the use of the word “feel” (Twain, 368) repeatedly, and the semantic field of feelings (feel, heart, love, passion, romantic etc.) expended in her first diary entry, highlight her......

Among these, eve-teasing, recently has become the burning issue for the country because of its adverse effects on women, especially to the teenage girls. Eve teasing has remained a concern since many years. But the fact that it has taken a massive shape is of great concern. The practice of eve-teasing is a form of sexual assault that ranges in brutality from catcalls, sexually evocative remarks, brushing in public places, to outright groping and very recently teasing by mobile phone and mobile tracking. It is an obvious fact that no conscious citizen of our country is unaware about this ugly situation created by the youth who follow criminal behavior. Suicide of a probable school or college girl as an outcome of eve-teasing is an obvious news whenever we scroll down the daily newspapers. Eve-teasing has no bounds. Every other person on the streets intend to assault women ranging from rich to poor, being literate to being uneducated.

Eve Teasing

... Though, we have grown by leaps and bounds yet the most basic structure of society is showing no signs of improvement. A thorough look at the news paper daily shows you so many incidents against woman. Eve teasing is a huge issue in many metropolitan cities of India. .A large percentages of Indian women have faced or are facing this menace. Whether it is a public transport system or public places or shopping malls or multiplexes, women find themselves vulnerable to the threat of eve teasing everywhere. Eve teasing is complex problem and it requires more attention that what it has actually got. As we know, the term ‘eve teasing’ is an Indian origin. The term itself has some demerits. Eve represents temptress and the term actually signifies that eves (women) tempt or provoke males for vulgar comments and behaviors. Ironically, that also means women cause the problem and are also a victim to it. But that is almost like blaming the victims for their sufferings. It also depicts an element of male chauvinism. Every man needs to be aware of ‘how to treat a woman’. Eve teasing in India has to do with women empowerment and girl education. What’s the point of education if the people are not even willing to respect women? The traditional mindset often blames the eve teasing incidents on women that they provoke male by wearing scanty clothes. That is actually a lame excuse. Even if females wear modern dresses it does not give men license to harass women. The answer lies in......

Adam and Eve

...Caroline Ward Mr. Lane Bible History 2 19 December 2013 Adam and Eve Perhaps the most famous couple in history, Adam and Eve sparked the beginning of humanity, and the loss of innocence. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, plants and animals, light to separate lightness and darkness, the oceans, and then man. Adam was the first man created. While he was sleeping, "The Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and brought her to the man." (Genesis 1:20). As a result, the first couple was created millenniums ago. What is significant about the creation of man is that it symbolizes the origins of temptation and sin. Adam and Eve were placed by God in a garden in a land called Eden. In the garden, there were two trees, the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge. God told Adam and Eve that they may eat from any tree, except the Tree of Knowledge, and if they were to eat from it, they shall die. A serpent then appeared from the tree. The serpent tempted Eve to eat from the tree, stating that if she did, that she would know both good and evil, just like God. So she took the fruit, and then gave some to Adam. God then punished both of them....

...distractions. • To reduce the boredom and dullness of unproductive work-meetings . • To reduce the frustration of work-overload. • To reduce the painful distress and anxiety of fears concerning work-place security and employability. Conclusion The aim of this report was to open up more profound understanding of demotivation in relation to the bodily and emotional dimension involved . What became evident is that demotivated employees are not one-dimensional ,but complex human beings involved in various embodied and emotional interrelations . Therefore HRM and HRD needs to embrace a perspective that demotivational problems are systemic and require systemic approaches and solutions . Taking the embodiment and emotionality as cause and medium ,which constitute realities of demotivation , phenomenology provides a corresponding descriptive and systemic approach for further investigations . Thus , the phenomenological approach of this report represents a framework for further analysis . Future research can specifically investigate demotivation in relation ,for example , to workforce diversity , older workers ,cross – cultural issues , or influences of technology , and informal learning , always situated within an embodied and emotional embedment. More generally , what is needed is a way of thinking of HRD , which values the complexity of the employees as embodied and emotional human beings . Thus ,the......

About 150,000 years ago, before B.C, people knew how to hunting and picking fruits to survived. Due to the weather changed and other external factors, they had moved to other places around the world where they found new ways to adapt to the new changes and environment. For example, because of the reasons such as not having food or weather changing, people from Africa moved to Yemen and India later. The scientists believed that it was the first immigration in our history of human based on what they found on the cave through pictures of hand drawings and stoned tools.

Causes of Eve Teasing

...Eve teasing Eve teasing is a euphemism used in India and sometimes Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal for public sexual harassment, street harassment or molestation of women by men, with Eve being a reference to the biblical Eve. Considered a problem related to delinquency in youth it is a form of sexual aggression that ranges in severity from sexually suggestive remarks, brushing in public places, catcalls, to outright groping. Sometimes it is referred to with a coy suggestion of innocent fun, making it appear innocuous with no resulting liability on the part of the perpetrator. Many feminists and voluntary organizations have suggested that the expression be replaced by a more appropriate term. According to them, considering the semantic roots of the term in Indian English, eve-teasing refers to the temptress nature of Eve, placing responsibility on the woman as a tease, as though the aggressive response of the males was normal rather than criminal. Eve-teasing has been a notoriously difficult crime to prove, as perpetrators often devise ingenious ways to attack women, even though many feminist writers term it as "little rapes” and usually occur in public places, streets, and public transport. Some guidebooks to the region warn female tourists that eve teasing may be avoided by wearing conservative clothing, though eve teasing is reported both by Indian women and by conservatively-dressed foreign women.

Eve Teasing

...Eve Teasing Eve teasing is a euphemism of public sexual harassment towards women by men, which can range from sexually suggestive remarks, brushing, catcalls, to downright groping and rape.  Bollywood movies commonly feature ‘eve-teasing’ as an acceptable form of flirtation for men on the hunt for his special, future wife. Obviously, a tug of a scarf to the tune of a playful Bollywood song is quite different from an uninvited touch on the bus. Sadly, the real evidence of eve teasing comes with unwelcome gestures and comments to Indian women and foreigners alike. The behavior has been a part of masculine Indian culture for many years, but first received attention from the media in the 1960’s. The Effects of Eve Teasing On Locals and Travelers Last December, eve teasing shot right back into public discourse when a female medical student wasbrutally gang-raped on a bus. Since then, more accounts have emerged of Indian women who have been sexually assaulted. Most of these cases go unreported because of the patriarchal attitudes of the police towards the women. What Do We Do Now?  While we at GGG are not ones to jump to conclusions due to media sensationalism, deeper reading of various news articles, government advisories, and blog accounts has left me with a concerned and troubled impression. Sexual assaults are still on the rise among the India’s women. According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) statistics, a woman in India is raped every 20 minutes. In fact,......

Christmas Eve

Laurie kept catching sight of the patterns blinking out of the corner of her eye. She’d turn her head towards the movement, convinced someone was motioning towards her. She really ought to get on with decorating the Christmas tree. It was only, what, nine days until the big day? Laurie had been living in Dublin with herself and her sister as a part of her college. She was admitted at the Trinity College, at Dublin. She wanted to someday want to become a cellist and perform at Madison square garden. She had dreaming of this since the very age of 10 and now her dreams were close to becoming true. She was one of the brightest and most talented students in her batch and it was declared that the valedictorian would get to play a solo alongside Gustave Dudamel, a famous maestro, at Madison square garden for their graduation performance. Laurie was from a middle class family of four, consisting of her father, mother and sister. Her parents were teachers at a local high school and her sister was an accountant. Being the younger child she had more freedom and this gave her an opportunity to follow her dreams and attend the Trinity College. Her sister was going on Christmas vacations and Laurie decided to stay as she had her exams coming up. When she returned she would come back with her brother......

Causes and Effect of Eve Teasing in Bangladesh

...these days rooting from economy, politics, corruption etc. However, it has also been facing many social problems which are kept out of awareness until it gets big as an issue. Eve teasing is one of them. Thesis Statement: Throughout this term paper I would like to give an effort to provide a brief discussion over the eve teasing issue in Bangladesh starting from its origin, causes, and expansion to its effects and remedy. Origin: Many people consider the term “eve teasing” as rooting from the word “eve” which literally means early. So it is generally concluded that “eve teasing” means teasing girls who are at their early age of youth or at the early stage of their sexual growth. However, the fact is, the term does originates from the word “eve” but it actually refers to our first mother “Eve” from whom we human kind came from. So “Eve Teasing” means to tease girls, at any age, who hold the characteristics of Eve or of a mother. Definition Eve teasing is a euphemism used in Bangladesh for sexual harassment or molestation of women by men. Considered a growing problem throughout the subcontinent,eve teasing ranges in severity from sexually colored remarks to outright groping. Some guidebooks to the region warn female tourists that eve teasing may be avoided by wearing conservative clothing, though eve teasing is reported both by Bangladesh women and by conservatively-dressed foreign women. Various reasons are suggested for the prevalence of sexual harassment in Bangladesh.......

Eve Teasing

...BASIC COMPOSITION.COM VISUAL DESIGN THEORY CARP (or CRAP) PRINCIPLES Robin Williams, a visual design guru, suggests that there are four Basic Design Principles: CONTRAST, ALIGNMENT, REPETITION, and PROXIMITY CONTRAST Contrast helps us to differentiate items on a page. Use contrast to show differences between a multitude of visual elements (type, color, size, shapes, etc). Contrast helps the reader to locate items more effectively. Additionally, contrast helps the reader to see differences between visual units. The biggest items often receive the most attention. The smallest items usually receive less attention. Consider this idea when you consider contrast. EX: LARGE Small ALIGNMENT Alignment is where you place things on the page in relation to other things. Everything should be placed strategically on the page (keeping in mind the direction of the reading). For instance, in the United States mainstream culture, readers read predominately English, which requires items be assessed from left to right and top to bottom. Our attention focuses on a diagonal line which runs from the top left to the bottom right. Things in this line tend to receive more attention from readers/viewers. Considering this idea can help a person understand how some items on the page may be viewed first or last. Most Arabic cultures read things from right to left, so you may need to change your design orientation. Likewise, many Asian languages do not read from side to side, they may read......
