What is sexual misconduct? How to bring sexual violence under control?

 Friends, today we will concentrate on what is sexual misconduct and how to bring this menace under control. Sexual misconduct is any sexualizing or sexualizing act that makes a person feel uncomfortable, intimidated or intimidated. This is the behaviour that a person would not have invited and selected.

Sexual misconduct is a betrayal and a violation of the right of every person to have a say on what should happen to their body. Sexual misconduct is an abuse of authority or power.

Sexual abuse can happen to adults and children, women and men, and people of all backgrounds.

Sexual misconduct can also be referred to as sexual abuse or sexual violence. Words describing sexual misconduct, such as rape or sexual misconduct, have both meanings, a general meaning in everyday conversation, and a special meaning when used to describe punishable sexual offences. On this website, we are using these terms only in a general way and to provide general information.

If you believe that a punishable sex offence has occurred and you wish to report it, you may want to seek further advice. You can do this by contacting the sexual misconduct service in your area, the police, your doctor, or a private attorney. Time may be a factor in this and these services can provide information about rights and options.

Sexual misconduct can take many forms

Knowing what sexual misconduct is helps us to respond when a friend, family member, or customer reveals that they have been abused. In the following list we find some examples of sexual misconduct:

10 surefire ways to control Sexual Violence

Sexual violence is actually a way of imposing patriarchal discipline on women. Averages who oppose it are punished for its brazenness with punishments such as rape and sexual violence. The fear of sexual violence and rape acts as a permanent internal censure on women's right to make decisions. Various restrictions are imposed on women in the name of protection from sexual violence.

There is a curfew-like situation on them. There are many restrictions like dress code, ban on mobile phones, limiting the circle of friendship, especially ban on friendship with men, which are imposed on women only so that they can be protected from sexual violence. The question arises, when will the society living in the age of science and technology bring a change in the dehumanizing thinking towards adolescent girls, girls and women? Human society is made up of men and women, that is, women are an integral part of society. As much attention is given to men, as much should be taken care of women. Women should be given equal rights in every field. When women do not keep any discrimination in the upbringing of the child in their stomach, then why this society?

It is this issue that makes women victims of sexual violence. The victims of sexual violence are not only women and girls, but innocent children are also victims of it. Sexual violence has to be faced inside and outside the home, at workplaces. Here we are talking about 10 such ways, which if society adopts, then women, girls and girls can be safe.


Women awareness

 The biggest reason for sexual violence is the lack of awareness among women. In the absence of education and information, women do not understand that they are becoming victims of this violence. Such incidents have been seen more especially with young girls.

The main reason for the increasing crime against women made strict laws is the flexibility of the law. In the absence of strict laws, criminals who make women their victims are easily let off.

Self-defence training One of the most effective ways to prevent sexual violence is women's self-defence training. In this way, women should be given training in karate. Self-defence training is being given especially to girls in schools.

Promote co-education

Co-education should be encouraged to prevent sexual violence. However, many of our politicians are against it. It is believed that in co-education, some unwanted incidents can also happen. The natural attraction of adolescent boys/girls to each other may prove to be capable of preventing crimes such as sexual violence.


Good Touch and Bad Touch Lessons

In most cases of sexual abuse against girls, it has been seen that girls do not understand that they are being wronged. In such a situation, parents should inform the girls about good touch and bad touch related to touch from the very beginning. So that whenever he has to go through such dirty touches, he can understand that wrong is happening to him.

Familiarity with modern technologies

After the Delhi gang rape, many such technologies were launched, through which women in trouble can protect themselves. Many mobile applications are such that they can send messages to their loved ones in times of trouble. After the Delhi gang rape, a mobile application named Nirbhaya has been launched, which will bring the information of women in trouble to their families.

 Promote sex education in schools

 By promoting sex education, boys and girls can be made aware of sexual violence. Although many parties and politicians are against it, as per the recommendations of Justice JS Verma Committee, sex education should be included in the school curriculum so that children know about right and wrong behaviour and mutual relations.

Children should be kept away from porn sites

According to a report by Middlesex University in England, a large number of children have access to pornography. Pornography promotes the feeling of sex in them, so they do not hesitate to commit any crime, especially sex crime. Sexual violence can be reduced by keeping children away from these pornographic videos.

Change in thinking

 Legislation or training proves to be crucial in preventing sexual violence, but what is most important is concrete action and equally important is a change in mindset where both the harasser and the defender are held accountable for their carelessness in their work.


Women have to take care of their own clothes

Women also have to take special care of their living habits, clothes and clothes. Girls should not wear any such provocative dress which gives rise to a wrong attitude in the minds of people on the way. Since attraction to the opposite sex is a natural gift, it is important for both women and men to take special care of their limitations. In any case, making it a measure of morality will be the most effective way to change hateful thinking.
