In society, women have to face so many different adversities, some of which people seem to be completely unaware of. Women should not have to face these issues like domestic violence, rape, human trafficking, pregnancy, miscarriages, and so many more. These matters not only affect women, but also young girls who are pre-pubescent. Women face these matters statistically higher at the that it can cause massive damage to the physical and mental health. This dilemma is shown to be very significant and that the people in the society should take it seriously. These issues have varies of subjects that society is unaware of that are affecting women worldwide. But one of the subtopics that should be talked about is domestic violence towards women and young girls around the world.
The danger of what women and young girls face during these situations that causes so much damage mentally and physically. “These effects include harm to an individual’s health, possibly long-term harm to children, and harm to communities such as lost work and homelessness” (womenshealth.gov). At the fact that women can be affected long and short-term but not only them but also their family are affected as well. Another subtopic that should not be ignored is sexual harassment, this subject has been around over the past few years. The last year of 2017 an activist woman named Tarana Burke started a movement called #MeToo and this movement helps women all around the world to have a voice to speak up of them facing sexual harassment. Many female celebrities and citizens have spoken up that they have encountered sexual assault ever since the #MeToo movement, yet it has not stopped these situations from happening. But yet the statistics of women victims have a higher percentage than male victims that have been sexually harassed.
“It found that 81 percent of women and 43 percent of men had experienced some form of sexual harassment during their lifetime” (npr.org). The focus of showing the society needs to change the world to lower the percentage of females but as well as for males.The next subject that is also is not taken seriously is rape especially when it is been happening in college and university. Women in college or university have been raped and will report it to the campus police but will not resolve the problem but make it worse for the victim.
Instead of reporting it to the campus police to report it to the local police because campus police can’t give strong punishment as local police can as well as not having enough resources. “Because many schools lack the resources and expertise of local police to investigate such crimes, let alone to professionally process physical evidence” (Board). It has been one of the causes of many young adults that are female to not be able to get the help they need by the campus since they don’t have the resources or ability to help.
