Global Study Reveals Stark Realities Faced by Girls around the World; Canadian Girls Weigh in with Similar Issues and Fears

Canada (PRWEB) October 06, 2014

In a groundbreaking new global study, conducted by Plan International and released today in Canada, adolescent girls in developing countries revealed that they do not see themselves as having or deserving of rights, and said they are constantly limited, constrained, and subjected to injustices that stunt their opportunities in life.

The global report, Hear Our Voices: Do Adolescent Girls’ Issues Really Matter?, is being released in Canada in advance of the third annual International Day of the Girl on October 11, 2014. Plan International spoke directly with more than 7,000 adolescent girls and boys aged 12-16 in 11 countries across Asia, Africa, Central and South America, making this one of the largest studies of adolescent girls’ rights to be conducted in the development sector.

In addition, Canadian girls also provided their views to Plan Canada in a separate focus group discussion involving a small but diverse group of girls from across the country. The Canadian girls were asked questions similar to those posed to the girls and boys canvassed across Asia, Africa, Central and South America for the global report, and they shared similar perspectives about violations of their rights, discrimination, harassment, and other severe concerns related to gender.

“This study is of enormous importance, highlighting the real challenges and barriers girls all over the world face. Whether they are burdened with housework that prevents them from attending school or at risk of teenage pregnancy and sexual assault, girls rights are being violated every day, and this is the first time we have really heard from so many adolescent girls on these topics,” said Sarah Hendriks, Global Gender Equality and Inclusion Advisor for Plan’s Because I am a Girl programs. “While these findings are not new, we can’t ignore now the level of violation, as the results bring thousands of daily lived realities into vivid colour. The plight of girls can only truly improve when everyone in society values girls as much as boys.”

The global report also shows that things are getting better for girls – though far too slowly in many areas. For instance, many girls are now able to dream of completing school and having a brighter future. Forty-one per cent of the adolescent girls Plan spoke to said that girls always or often complete at least nine years of school in their communities. Of girls interviewed, 72 per cent said that adolescent girls are always or often encouraged to succeed in their schoolwork as much as boys. Similarly, 71 per cent of adolescent boys said that girls are always or often encouraged academically as much as boys in the classroom.

Other key findings from Plan’s global Hear Our Voices report:

39 per cent of girls Plan spoke to claimed that girls never or seldom are able to decide about their own marriage. Globally, one in three girls in the developing world will be married by her eighteenth birthday.
Violence against girls is frighteningly normative – girls expect to be victims of violence, and the levels of violence that they experience are seen as normal. Girls seldom feel free from violence at home, in communities, and at school. In fact, 77 per cent of girls Plan spoke to in one Bangladesh community claimed that adolescent girls never or seldom feel safe in their community.
Over half (51 per cent) of girls involved in the study said that adolescent girls never or seldom say what they think when a boy or man is around.
Over half (53 per cent) of girls Plan spoke to claimed that adolescent girls never or seldom decide if they become pregnant. Complications in pregnancy and childbirth are the leading cause of mortality for girls aged 15 to 19 in developing countries.

“At home, we are sometimes sexually harassed by our relatives whom we can never report as they will be our guardians.” – Girl from Zimbabwe

“Girls do not have decision-making power over pregnancy. The male says to them ‘You are machines to birth children’.” – Girl from Pakistan

“I’m scared to go outside home after sunset because there is no security now to protect the girls.”- Girl from Egypt

Canadian girls, meanwhile, also spoke of experiences of violations of their rights, discrimination, harassment, and other severe concerns related to gender. They reported ongoing fear for their personal safety when travelling to and from school, work, or going about their other daily routines and social outings, and many expressed feeling like a target for assault and violence because they are girls.

“Safety is such a basic human right that is often taken away from girls. I want to walk my dog by myself, go shopping or take the bus, any basic activity but I’m constantly on edge.” – Girl, 17, Newfoundland

“As much as we’d like to think that we’re safe, we really aren’t. We’re told from a very young age that guys will always have the upper hand and that we should avoid late-night encounters because if something goes wrong, society will tell us that it was our fault.” – Girl, 18, Ontario

Canadian girls also identified an urgent need for action to be taken by schools, government, law-makers, and families to engage boys and men in addressing and stopping violence, violation of girls’ rights, and discrimination against girls in all forms. They felt that too often blame and onus is placed on girls to protect and keep themselves safe, while there is not enough emphasis and action placed on preventing the violations they experience, which is often carried out by men and boys.

“The global study provided an opportunity for girls and boys across the developing world to reflect on their own empowerment and equality, with a view to encouraging them to re-consider their views and potentially take action to address the issues,” said Hendriks. “We’ll make sure that this evidence is used in our own and others work on gender equality and girls’ empowerment. It means that advocates everywhere will be armed with fresh insights into the plight of girls, enabling further influence on policy makers.”

The Top 5 Major Rituals Of A Marriage In Bangladesh

Bangladesh is famous for its customs and rituals and especially the Rabindra Sangeet that is always an integral part of the marriage ceremony. Though there are various cultures with various rituals and customs of marriage one cannot resist the richness of a Bangladeshi marriage when it comes to the traditional customs, the music and the lavish food. Unlike the normal marriage, a Marriage In Bangladesh continues for a minimum of 3-5 days which starts with a engagement and ends in a post marriage union of the two.

The entire process of a Marriage In Bangladesh starts with a match finding, a job undertaken by the friends and relatives of the girl and the boy who act as the mediators to finalize a marriage. Once a candidate is chosen, the kundalis (Horoscopes) are first matched and also they ensure that they do not belong to the same ancestors / descendants, in which case they become prior relatives and hence marriage cannot be done. Once this is cleared off, the formal introduction of the boy and the girl is done and when they agree for each other, the elders with the help of a priest fix a date for engagement which is normally a day or two prior to the marriage date.

The engagement is completed by priest after doing certain poojas and the would-be bride and groom exchange rings and take the blessings of elders from both sides by touching their feet. On the day before the marriage the Mehendi Shondha ceremony is done in which the bride and her family and relatives’ palms are decorated with designs using henna.

This is followed by the Gaye Holud in which the groom’s family, leaving behind the groom, comes to the bride’s house with gifts, jewels, dresses and turmeric paste. They make the bride sit dais and the turmeric paste is applied all over the body followed by feeding the bride with sweets. Similarly it is done with the groom too.

On the day of the wedding, the bride and the groom are taken in separate procession to the nearby pond by married elderly ladies and pray to Goddess Ganga to witness the marriage and bless the couple. As a mark of Goddess attending the marriage a pitcher of water is fetched from that pond and brought to the marriage venue. When the bride and groom take a bath on the marriage day, this water is poured on them and it is believed that Goddess Ganga is blessing the couple.

The groom then arrives fully dressed in traditional Sherwani. The bride’s siblings and their relatives block the entry of the groom and demand a sum of money in return for giving entry into the Mandap. After a little bit of cajoling the groom pays the amount and proceeds to the mandap, where the rituals are conducted by a priest. With the Fire (Agni Devta) as the witness the marriage is performed  by the priest by chanting mantras and the bride and groom do 7 rounds of the ceremonial fire and tie the nuptial knot.

This is followed by a grant feast at the brides and then when they reach the grooms’ house there again a reception is conducted with a similar return treatment with a grand feast. Such is the interesting Marriage In Bangladesh.

The 4 Major Changes In Marriage Bangladesh Performs

It is a common fact that modernization has seeped into everyone’s life in some way or the other. If it is to the level that the traditional customs and rituals are still maintained and the modernization is adapted within it then it is most welcome. One such example is the marriage ceremony. When we talk of Marriage Bangladesh is the country that comes to one’s mind immediately where people are highly traditional but have tactfully absorbed certain modernization keeping the tradition in tact.

In Marriage, Bangladesh stands at one of the top 10 countries, where marriage is a colorful and traditional affair with loads of rituals and fun fare.  If we take a look at some of the rituals it would be surprising how they have a thoughtfulness blended with usefulness in their tradition and at the same time have given in to flexible changes too.

Ghotokos to Online Matchmaking – As per the tradition, friends or relatives act as Ghotokos or matchmakers to find a suitable match for the girl or the boy. Today, the Online Matchmaking is fast overtaking this tradition. The parents and families of the girls and boys too are welcoming this change with open arms as they find it to give a wider range of choice and better and detailed understanding of the match.

Modern Outfit but with the traditional touch – The bride’s sari’s have been replaced by Lehengas which are more fashionable and comfortable. But these do not loose their original tradition and the prints, designs and gorgeousness found in the traditional wedding sari can be seen in these Lehengas too. The traditional red colored costume has found various variations like maroon, orange etc. which doesn’t restrict it to be a one time use and can be worn in other parties and functions too. Some grooms also prefer to wear western suit but mostly during the reception and the traditional sherwanis come with a tang of modern designs.

Traditional Bengali feast to modern Continental – The traditional fish curry, roasted varieties and desserts are still persistent. But along with this there are additions and expansions of food varieties that include Indian, Continental and Chinese. This is mostly done keeping in view the guests which were earlier from within the community and in and around villages but now come from various parts of the world to attend the marriage in the modern times.

Ritualizing to socializing – Marriage is basically a ritualistic affair which has today turned into a socialized affair. Many rituals like Mehendi ki Rasm, Gaye holud (Turmeric Ceremony) are today found to be more of a relaxed social gathering pushing behind the prominence of rituals. While major ones are followed with a good gathering and in public some are followed in a quiet manner. There is a fear that some of these may fade into oblivion and forgotten by the future generations.

But coming to an overall conclusion we can say that there is a change in the functions of Marriage Bangladesh follows but there is no total switchover.

Breast enhancement news

There are a lot of medical researches going on all around the world in the field of Breast enhancement in order to give women an even better look who deserves it owing to their beauty. There are many women today who want to have a larger size of breasts. Accordingly, there are lots of techniques that are there to be used by the women in order to increase their bust size.

A lot of such enhancement techniques are available in the market today. Some of the techniques that are there in the market are herbs, pills, creams etc. Though surgery yields the fastest results, it has many side effects that may sometimes outweigh the advantages. One’s body may sometimes reject the implants which may cause serious troubles. Sometimes the implants get ruptured thus causing leakages which can cause certain illnesses. However in spite of so many ill effects, many women still undergo surgery may be because they yield quicker results.

Herbal enhancers, however offer a safer and more effective way of Breast enhancement. They do not contain the risks that are involved in surgery. What they do is, just increase the amount of certain hormones like estrogen, which are responsible for the growth of the breasts. They take some time to yield results. But their functionality is guaranteed.
These natural enhancers use the natural products like those of herbs to give the user a larger size of breasts. By the use of phyto-estrogen, these enhancers cause the bust tissue react as they actually do at the time of puberty. The desired results are seen in some months. As these methods of bust enhancements are natural, there are no risks of any kind of side effects that can occur due to their use.

However there is one disadvantage related with the use of these products. The results that are obtained from the use of these products are not permanent. They can be stopped at any time one feels not to have a larger bust. On most occasions the size of the breasts becomes normal after one stops the use of such products. They are much cheaper and can be easily changed if found unsuitable for one’s use. Another very important disadvantage of these items is the probable side effects that might arise due to the use of these products.

One should always consult a doctor though, before opting for such Breast enhancement pills and creams. They can guide one better about which pill would suite the criterions of the user.

Bengali Matrimony – A Bond of Togetherness

Bengal is an Indian state, known for its rich culture, tradition and intellectualism. The richness of their tradition is reflected in every activity and occasion, Marriage is no exception. The state is located in the North east boundary of India and river Hoogly flows here. Eminent personalities like Rabindra Nath Tagore, Mahashweta Devi, and Asha Poorna Devi, various freedom fighters, artists, painters, dancers, movie makers, etc hail from this place. The list is endless. Since, it is a unique place; the Bengali matrimony also reflects certain unique customs and traditions.

Marriage typically takes place in Bengali “Adda”, style accompanied with a lot of fanfare. A lot of family bonding is reflected on such occasions where everyone works together to prepare for the marriage. Every task is carried out in a fun filled manner in a Bengali Matrimony. A variety of Vedic rituals are also followed in Bengali Marriage so that the blessings of divine deities get showered on the new couple. Blowing of conch shells and “shubh dhristi” fills everyone with joy and happiness.

Like every other marriage, Bengali Matrimony is also carried out with the blessings and support of elders of the family. Most of the time elders and parents of the prospective brides and grooms look for their life partners. Several factors are considered before finalizing an appropriate match for the boy or girl. Some of them are age, income, financial status, caste, religion, interests, looks and appearance, etc. But as times are changing and people are moving to other places in search of better job prospects, the traditional way of matchmaking is slowly fading away. People are no longer in touch with their roots and are looking for other ways to find suitable matches for their children. Internet mainly has been a blessing in disguise and has come to their rescue in matters like these.

With technological advancements, Bengali matrimonial sites have gained tremendous popularity. People from all walks of life and different strata of society are using this platform to search for their life partner. It’s a suitable platform where they can interact with each other and know more about their prospective soul mates. This method of online matchmaking is definitely an innovative way to fulfill one’s dream and find one’s life partner.

People who are typical workaholics can use this medium and search for an appropriate life partner. These Bengali Matrimonial Websites offer reliable matchmaking services and they maintain an exhaustive database of profiles of boys and girls looking for suitable life partners. These profiles are categorized in terms of religion, age groups, creed, caste, income and status of the family. These factors help them to streamline their search. To meet the requirement of “Bengali Samaj”, a large number of Bengali Matrimonial websites have been launched. These sites offer a wide spectrum of options according to the requirements of different individuals sporting different personalities. Through these sites, people with same interests can meet similar minded people irrespective of distances. They can exchange their views and thoughts and can know more about each other. Once satisfied, this meeting can progress to the next level where the parents and family of both sides interact. After the families are completely assured about everything they can fix the match simply in a traditional manner.

However, before using these sites people are advised to consider the status, the common or mutual interest of the prospective life partner and then embark on a new journey. Care should also be taken while referring to these sites as sometimes fake profiles are loaded on the sites in order to lure more clients. Credibility and reliability must always be checked well in advance.

Sonali writes on behalf of Jeevansathi.com, which is India’s fastest growing matrimonial website. Jeevansathi.com enables users to create and search corresponding matches for their respective profiles like Brahmin Matrimonial, Christian Matrimonials wherein users can avail free registration and make initial contact with each other.
