Smile Foundation organised a sensitizing campaign Suraksha and Swabhiman (Security and Dignity) at Jantar Mantar, as an effort to sensitize male members of the society and to ensure their participation for making the society safer and friendlier for the women.
In past some days the rate of women harassment and abusing has worryingly increased and serious concerns have been raised about the increasing instances that compromise woman’s security and dignity.
Speaking on the occasion Mr. H.N. Sahay- Director Smile Foundation stated, “When we talk about safety and dignity of women, we cannot ignore the roles of the male members in our society. They are brothers, neighbors, co-workers, strangers, and this is just about any men. If our men are sensitized and play their role wherever they are, we can make our society a better place for women.”
In order to intensify the issue and find a proactive solution in the form of sensitizing and involving men, Smile Foundation conducted the campaign named Suraksha and Swabhiman(Security and Dignity) A few young boys and girls came together symbolically to show the way towards making a safer and better place for women.
The youth came from all walks of life enthusiastically participated in the campaign.
The campaign included some sensitizing activates like slogan writing, street play, poems, one-act play, caricatures, etc. related to the issues of safety, security and dignity of women highlighting the fact that how proactively involvement of men can improve the situation.
Pledges were raised for making the society a safer place for women.
