People have gross misconceptions about child sexual abuse, but boys and girls are equally susceptible to rape and abuse.
People have gross misconceptions about child sexual abuse, with many parents even believing that it only happens outside, when in fact, many CSA cases are reported against relatives or friends. Boys are equally susceptible to rape as well.
Yes it is not evident and not in our face, so we think it doesn’t exist. But Child Sexual Abuse does exist. You will be shocked to know that every year, more than 20,000 cases of child sexual abuse get reported in India alone yet there are many who do not see the light of day and those children who are exposed to this horrendous experience are stripped of their innocence and their trust for life.
Most Indian parents seldom listen to their children, leave alone talk to them. But educating your child and being vigilant all the time is the only way to save them. They cannot protect themselves, we can! Open your eyes! If you think your child or someone else’s child is being subject to sexual abuse and comes to you to expresses his/her trouble, then listen to them and believe in them; children rarely lie about sexual abuse. Support the child for speaking up and please do not shut them up; you will aggravate the problem. Assure them it is NOT their fault and that you are there to protect him/her

Their aim is to raise awareness about CSA as well as to empower and educate survivors and child victims and their loved ones. They also provide resources for teachers, social workers, medical professionals and the police.

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
Uorfi Javed has been making waves through social media, and is often the target of trolls. So who and what exactly is this intriguing young woman?
Uorfi Javed (no relation to Javed Akhtar) is a name that crops up in my news feeds every now and again. It is usually because she got trolled for being in some or other ‘daring’ outfit and then posting those images on social media. If I were asked, I would not be able to name a single other reason why she is famous. I am told that she is an actor but I would have no frankly no clue about her body of work (pun wholly unintended).
So is Urfi Javed (or Uorfi Javed as she prefers) famous only for being famous? How does she impact the cause of feminism by permitting herself to be objectified, trolled, reviled?
