Sharing A Real Life Story

– From J Raouf.

Her story is this that she was born in the UK and her parents were from Asia. 

The children had another way of life to her. At the age of 4, she started school and was embarrassed as her mother was very traditional and the kids were very western. it was a clash of cultures and she never could fit in, no matter how hard she tried. She just knew she was different to other kids. 

She suffered a lot of discrimination by being a girl from a different race and with a different culture.

As she became older the teachers became harsher even in primary school. A teacher didn’t believe her when she said that a boy had bullied her as the teacher thought that he was with the teacher most of the time.She was afraid of asking questions because the teachers were not understanding.

 In high school, even her own friends would turn against her in an attempt to ruin their own best friend and stir up fights.And the teachers did nothing about it. They only made the situation worse by not realising what was going on. 


In University, she was harassed by a man from back home who was previously engaged and a friend. Nothing was done about it, although he stalked her to her home. She told the University but they didn’t believe her, they thought it was normal.

 She thinks nowadays that this sexual harassment idea is getting out of control as people are coming out with stories that show that they have given consent. 

A large part of sexual harassment is unreported and the genuine cases usually go ignored.

#collab-a-thon(Celebrating Womenhood)



Collab-a-thon. Hmm.. that’s a great idea! This series by @Meraki Forever has made my ideas and thoughts to be more open. I would thank Rida for giving me such an opportunity to address one of a global problem. 

Well the problem…

From 2007 to 2012, only 30.8% of the speaking characters in the top 500 movies were women.

We are at a pivotal moment for women’s rights. The historical and structural inequalities that have allowed oppression and discrimination to flourish at being exposed like never before. It has unended traces, across the global film industry. 
Women’s empowerment is at the heart of 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development. While facts don’t lie  about the discrimination women face in their work life, they are subject to harassment in most cases.

Global film industries including the Hollywood have been seen as the most civilised ones. Yet cases like Harvey Weinstein’s still exist. This gender gap in film industries har remained unchecked for about a decade. Women acting roles lie almost less than half that their men counterparts had. 

Women centric movies definitely need encouragement. For a movie isn’t complete until there’s a woman in it. Perhaps Disney understood the problem before the industry could and had a special series of ‘Disney princess’

 However, in many Television as well as theatre shows, men play their role as women !!. Ya.. That’s true…. no one can deny it. Rather gender  oppression and discrimination in movies must be denied. 

On this March 8, international women’s day, newspapers and magazines will have a whole cover full of about-women talks but everyone forgets it when a day or two passes ! And….

‘Women’ can do what ‘we men’ cannot do

~Ayush Anand


It was great to collaborate on such a sensitive topic with a boy too.

It’s like a breath of fresh air and a refreshing feeling when all of us irrespective of our differences unite together for an issue. It is high time that everyone came out of their closets and voiced their opinion for the equality of mankind and a safe environment for all. 
When more and more women will come out and break the shackles of the patriarch society and the orthodox diktats, more females will be encouraged to say No More.. #Time’s Up.

The #MeToo movement is now a wake up call for everyone. But , all those out there, should now fight against the violence and torments so that the next generation is not saying #MeToo.

Without HER..even a HERO is a 0. 

Then,what is the brouhaha about the machoism? Real men protect and treat equally their female counterparts. 

You are the change..Come out and be the change. Spread the idealism of  #Equal Rights.

When God had made no differences amongst us..then why we the society is making this heinous step?

Make it feel safe for a girl to walk around.. How will a person feel when it is followed/stared/teased/abused every single moment. Life becomes hell.


So…all the strong girls and ladies..and the most supportive boys and men there..

Let’s bring the change..

As Ayush’s blog says..

#Life needs a change

  1. Hey Rida!
    Great post. Just to clarify and add on that harassment is not just sexual. I think awareness especially in developing countries is very important. Thanks for raising awareness.
    Lots of love ❤
