“Technology” and “Women Safety”, these have become two of the very important terms recently. Technology is advancing faster and has become an important part of our lifestyle as well as has become a “necessity”. Likewise, women safety has become a top priority for everybody to look upon. Various measures are being taken to improve women safety.
Technology can’t stop violence against women neither it can guarantee women safety, but it can change the way how we raise awareness about it and help us to prevent it. I am a student and at times I’m worried when I have to travel alone during the night. Even my parents get worried when I don’t reach on time. While walking on the streets and finding no cabs no rickshaws to drop you, well, it’s a cause of getting worried and scared too. But now it seems there are ways to ease my fears. Of course, the credit goes to the latest technology, which is solving our problems way too faster. Now if we have a cell phone in our hands, then half of our worries and tensions are reduced. Yes! Technology has given birth to various alternatives that help to reduce any kind of violence and let us feel safe and secure.
Not only this, technology is helping women to protest more loudly, to draw attention to the horrific violence happening all around. Unfortunately, there’ll never be a day where I don’t look over my shoulder every time I walk out the door. No woman will, I guess. But the technology will let me sleep a little easier knowing that there are people out there in the world who want to change that.
