Women are mentally stronger compared to men. They can play different roles in day-to-day life with ease. But one should not get carried away with their position at work. Clarity in thinking helps one serve society better, III Metropolitan Magistrate Judge G. Sunitha said.
Addressing people at a meet ‘Mahila Chattala Nyaya Vignana Sadassu’ organised by Prabha Charitable Trust recently, she stressed the need to create harmonious life between genders.
She also explained how women can approach police stations and courts and file a case under Section 498 A IPC to protect themselves against domestic violence on different grounds.
She also spoke about gender equality and legal aspects of ‘pious obligation’ of daughters.
Though we have been adequately protected and assured by laws against violence and abuse, in many subtle ways women are still being viewed as the weaker sex, lamented Deputy Commissioner of Customs and Central Excise B. Sumidha Devi. “It is also pathetic to note that young girls are falling prey to puppy love neglecting their education and parents. They are misplacing their trust. But the real dignity can be earned only when one concentrates on studies and makes a mark serving society. The dignity you pay for your job will earn you respect,” she explained.
Superintendent of Police G. Srinivas said: “Women are involved in a lot of selfless service to family and society. Do not tolerate violence silently. Rise to the situation and approach proper channels to guard your rights against any form of violence.”
