Entertainment Media Needs to be Responsible

Readers Pulse

The public anger and uproar created in our nation owing to the heinous rape and murder of the 23 years old Delhi student simply compels us to introspect and find out the possible causes or reasons of increasing such sexual crimes against women. Though there are several reasons to these heinous sexual crimes, but the root cause is the portrayal of women as sex objects in different forms of media. The dirty and cheap songs and extra revealing attires of the item girls and leading Bollywood actresses seem to demean women and project them as mere sex objects.  The gestures of dancers in such songs and the lyrics invite sexual aggression against women. The Entertainment Media needs to be more responsible while portraying women in songs, films, etc. It is high time the concerned authorities stood up and stopped these depictions and made the people and media accountable for permitting such violations in the society.
