Open defecation - Impact on the dignity of the female

India is known worldwide for it's culture and tradition but these days it is also becoming known for the poverty, dirt and crimes against women which is existing in it's society.

In India, we can find thousand of people who take a moral high ground and talk about dignity of women. From what women should wear to which places they should travel. I find it really amusing that when it comes to the problem of open defecation, which affects the dignity of the women the most, these people are silent.

The silence of the society to such a grave problem has resulted in many problems for women, which most of the women don't even complain about and have made it a part of their life.

Every year the cases of sexual assault on women who are doing open defecation are increasing. Many women gets teased and face troubles everyday. The society has failed to give them the respect that they deserve. 

There has been numerous complains made to the authorities and we can read the news about this everyday but still the situation has hardly changed the women in our society. Since the law and order is also not a point which our country is proud of hence women become more susceptible for attack.

It is not just crimes but just the dignity of being a human, we can't excrete in the open like animals. Even in this age when our country is trying to become a super power, it is a pity to see that many women in our country is still doing open defecation or in other words living their life like animals.

When in this country we worship women in the form of Maa Durga and many other goddess then why can't we pay the same amount of respect to the women who are living around us and who are part of the same society we live in.It is matter of great concern that women have to fight every day for their dignity and our society is unable to provide them this basic facility of toilets.

I think it is a great initiative by Domex ( to work towards creating toilets for the villages. This will definitely a commendable step towards giving women their dignity back. The village women who suffers a lot without uttering a single word, will be given the respect they deserved.

Domex launched Domex Toilet academy programme on 19th November 2013. This toilet academy works towards creating accessible and affordable toilets for people while also promoting the benefits of clean toilets and good hygiene.
