This Navratri, A Reminder That Women Don’t Want Or Need To Be Goddesses. We Just Want To Live With Respect, Okay?

September 30, 2022 | by Kinjal Panchal

Navratri 2022 is on in full swing and Durga Puja is just around the corner. This season, as much as people enjoy the festivities, a lot of discussion takes place online about how, on the one hand, people worship Goddess Durga. On the other, women in society are disrespected and mistreated. And several recently occurred incidents have proven this as well. This becomes a hot topic of discussion online and this year, too, we came across a Twitter user who went on to write on the micro-blogging site that if people disrespect women 365 days a year, then worshipping Goddess Durga for 9 days is not going to make her happy.

Some recently occurred events have proven how ironic this whole situation is. Taking the lead is the chilling case of Ankita from Uttrakhand who passed away after she was pushed off a bridge by the former BJP leader’s son because she refused to get into prostitution. Then, the RSS leader Vipin Karnwal made on to make a cheap remark about the deceased by calling her ‘raw milk’ as it was her fault that the ‘hungry cat-like’ perpetrators were trying to force her into prostitution.

How a woman’s clothing decides if she is worth respecting or not. Irrespective of religion, each woman needs to be respected. The whole hijab row shed light on how women of the Islamic faith are biased against.

The most recent incident is where women who stand up to ask for basic rights are mocked. Yes, I am talking about the Bihar IAS officer’s response when a girl asked if the government could provide pads at a subsidised rate. She tried to shut down the girl by saying she will next ask for free condoms from the government.

The crime rate against women is rising exponentially. No day goes by when we do not hear stories about a woman being raped, murdered, kidnapped, and even set on fire. Each case is just as bone-chilling as the next.

Also, if we take a look at the movies, women are just portrayed as arm candies when they, in reality, are the real shakti. Women are highly objectified in movies as well.

On that note, women do not want to be goddesses, nor do they want to be treated like one. They just want to be treated with the same respect as men in our society. They want access to equal opportunities and equal pay for their hard work. They do not want to be prejudiced against because of their gender. We just want to live a peaceful life and keep looking over our shoulders all the time.
