Our society is suffering from many social evils at this moment. One of the worst evils is the Eve Teasing. Now eve teasing is the one of the main threats for bangladesh because it is destroying the social balance. Eve teasing is a euphemism used for public sexual harassment, street harassment or molestation of women by men, with eve being a reference to the biblical Eve. It usually involves young men annoying girls or women by making sexual harassment in public place or in the working places. School & college gate are the wayward of young men of disturbing girls or women. Eve teasing begins as an attempt to irritate a girl or catch her attention. A lewd stare or, a sly whistle, a well timed clap, an unwarranted bump, a seemingly casual touch, a lingering look, the humming of suggestive song, passing downright uncouth comments, cheap gestures, display of indecent videos or snaps….all these are typical example of eve teasing. Eve teasing may seem harmless fun to some, but gets the nerve of the victims. The severe impact of eve teasing is taking away the lives of young girls as we have witnessed recently. Eve teasing has an ability of curtailing the education of a girl. Girls who are teased or harassed are also pushed into marriage at an early age before they are physically or mentally prepared. It also hinders women from participating in the formal employment sector. To prevent this heinous act we have to raise public awareness of bad impact of eve teasing. The government should have more firm position against the eve teasers & take necessary steps to punish them before it begins to be replicated with impunity.
