Crime Women Objectification

Doing one action again and again and expecting different results is the true definition of madness. One after another new headlines keep crowding the TV screens about Crimes against women. For a few days, civil society, feminists, conservatives and liberals’ clamor for women rights, and, later, all the anger subsides. It is like time heals their wounds. But when their wounds are just about to be healed, a new incident arises and festers them. If people demand public hanging, they dismiss the idea right away_ though harsh punishments make a lot of difference. Sometimes the criminals are caught by police only to be absolved by the courts due to insufficient evidence against them and the police’s poor handling of the case coupled with an expensive justice system. Ironically, the victims have to buy justice for themselves_ a colonial legacy that makes no sense and is an antithesis to our historical and religious values. Simply put, these actions don’t make any difference. If anything, they are worsening the situation. This begs a question. What should society do? The answer lies in a simple maxim i.e. prevention is better than cure. But to prevent disease, its origin and transmission patterns should be discovered. This takes us to the question “why it is happening in the first place”. The logic takes a sane mind to the conclusion that male members of society don’t take women as human beings. Again, a question arises. What is causing it?  The answer objectification of women_ is often ignored by many women rights’ activists and advocates.

Objectification of Women seems to be a root cause of crimes against women. Women are treated as toys, attention-grabbing objects and seducers. They are beautified and displayed on billboards, in TV ads and cinema. Moreover, social media platforms, including TikTok, Snake Video and Instagram to name a few, encourage women to put themselves on display. The women who become popular_or successful in enticing a large number of diseased men to be precise_ are showered with money and fame. This objectification spawns thinking in the men with dead conscience_which is killed by the overwhelming lust the above-mentioned sources produce_ that women are things to be used or abused. They don’t take them as human beings bearing souls. According to Hamza Tzortis, a well-known debater, women are thought to be as pieces of meat destined to be preyed upon by beasts (men without a conscience). The objectification of women has degraded their status in societies across the world. If somehow, it is controlled, the state will, then, just have to hand out severe and public punishment to criminals to eliminate this evil once for all.

To conclude, a bold action by the political leadership is required in this regard. Conferences on women rights, TV programmes and social media awareness campaigns will not do any good except making a noise. Prevention of this disease should be ensured before treatment. Women’s objectification should be strictly banned. Those who are bent upon committing this crime against women should be treated as those who harass, assault, molest or rape women. It is the time the evil nipped in the bud. It is the only way to come out of the vicious cycle of madness. Pakistani society is in transition. Although the pandemic of violence against women is quickly engulfing the whole society, there are still a few rays of hope left. Timely action is acutely needed lest the boat sail.
