We Shall Overcome

  THE RAPE OF THE 23-year old medical student, Ms. Jyoti Singh Pandey, in New Delhi in December 2012 outraged many around the world. Sadly, for those of us with ties to India, this crime, as horrific and shocking as it was, did not come as a complete surprise. More recently, the same act was [...]

Acomplia Overnight

TWO WEEKENDS AGO Acomplia Overnight, , my cousin and I had a girls’ night out and ended up watching the late night show of Rock On. After the show ended, we hailed a cab, Acomplia Overnight usa, hopped in and sang like wannabe rock stars all the way home, between squabbling about who was the hottest man in the movie. She dropped me off with a loud “Rock on!” and a wave and rode away in the same cab toward where she lives with her husband and daughters. It was 2 am, 150mg Acomplia Overnight. And I came home and realized I should send up a silent prayer that I was safe.

Being a woman in any Indian city comes with its own clock: your physical self must not see the later hours of the night. Avoidable when you’re working, and ridiculous if it’s merely for pleasure, Acomplia Overnight. “Good girls” are home early, Acomplia Overnight overseas, safely cosseted from the elements of the dark; never mind that the city parties until dawn. Which is why, it angers but doesn’t really surprise me when the Honorable Chief Minister of Delhi has this to say about Soumya Viswanathan’s commitment to her profession:

"All by herself till 3 am at night in a city where people believe...you know...you should not be so adventurous.''

And of course, since Ms, Acomplia Overnight us. Dixit’s government runs on the mandate of the people, and the people believe Soumya Viswanathan was “adventurous”, Acomplia Overnight coupon, it’s all her fault, right Chief Minister. You clearly can’t be taking responsibility or action and remarks like this had better teach us women our place in the world. Acomplia Overnight, Don’t go out there. Don’t meet your deadlines, Acomplia Overnight craiglist. If you use your head to contribute to society, you might just find a bullet shot into it.

No, 50mg Acomplia Overnight, I don’t advocate roaming the streets in the wee hours just to prove a point. I am aware that as much as we’d love the world to let us feel like regular citizens instead of scuttling second-class ones, it isn’t happening right away. Perhaps I won’t see or hear of it in this lifetime, Acomplia Overnight uk. But to have come this far, to have women stepping out everyday, contributing to the workforce and then being blamed for being out there instead of booking the culprits, is regressive, anti-feminist and throws us right back to the previous century, Acomplia Overnight. The least the CM can do is shut up and get cracking instead of using her position of power to encourage people to keep their wives and daughters indoors.

In the absence of state-provided security facilities for all citizens in the country, I do realize that we’ve got to take care of our own safety if we are to avoid becoming another statistic. Acomplia Overnight canada, My question is: how far do we go in the bid to stay safe and where do we draw the line. If it were up to Sheikh Muhammad al-Habadan of Saudi Arabia, we’d all be walking around looking at the world with only one eye, because “showing both eyes encourages women to use eye make-up to look seductive.” If it were up to Ms Sheila Dixit, 100mg Acomplia Overnight, we’d all be home watching prime time television, never mind that late night shift or upcoming deadline or special edition the next day. No partying on New Year’s Eve, because your anatomy will invite trouble. And of course, it doesn’t matter that you’re only 11 years old. Being a woman-in-waiting is reason enough to be hauled off and raped. It’s all our fault for being adventurous enough to have a vagina. Wouldn’t you agree, Madam Chief Minister?
