Abhyuday, IIT Bombay presents ‘Opine’ the Essay Competition that urges you to express your opinions on the ‘Perceptions about Women in Society’

Topic Brief:

21st century India is the theatre of an awkward and potentially dangerous sociological flux. Many would argue that a quest for modernity hasn’t cured the patriarchal hangover that the country suffers. A combination of age-old misogynist dogma and the latest in masterpieces of sexual commodification have created a society where gender violence is all pervasive and the horrendous practice of victim blaming raises it’s ugly head ever so often. Our ‘goddesses’ are crying but is there anyone to listen? Is there enough social an political will to end the rape epidemic in our country? Is an overly sexist mainstream media that constantly objectifies women in item numbers, in advertisements, in movies, and in songs a manifestation of the problem? Or a cause if it? Is our insistence that a woman’s honour resides in her genitals creating pernicious notions of virginal honour? Are we in our everyday lives, either actively or tacitly reinforcing the rape culture? Tell us what you think..
