Happy Women’s day!
I however don’t really feel very great about this day now, it gave us a chance to celebrate our womanhood. However, with things that are happening around us, I really don’t think that celebrating it is of any use, not that I am ashamed of being a woman but I, like all other women, hope that things were better.
I was in a conversation few days back about
safety and a friend pointed out that when a woman is
being eve teased none of the spectators come to her rescue. Another friend
argued that “Why do you need someone else to come rescue you? Rescue yourself
She continued, “Imagine you are in a bus, and you have a knife in your hand. Do you think anyone who even bother coming close to you?”
Now I know this is a little extreme, but she had a point.
Yesterday, I went to the Indiblogger’s Meet. They had a self defense workshop planned, it was very helpful! I am just mentioning a few pointers that may come to your rescue
I hope you never have to use them ( )
