Women during reporting needs security.

Journalism is a very dignified and arduous profession around the world due to its different and unique nature. Dignified in the sense because journalism reveals hidden crime stories and inform the nation about latest good and atrocious happenings in society and in the political world. In every country of the world it is considered a very noble field with good amount of salary. But women face some problems in the field work. During reporting they are faced by eve-teasing and harassment. Many persons of the society today still think that women should be restricted to household work or if they want to join any profession then teaching is the most suitable for them. No doubt teaching is a very modest field. But I think if someone wants to do something different then they should be given freedom of choice. If someone is taking a right decision then I think we should embolden them instead of discouraging and scarifying from the evil minds. Everyone has the right to live independently. Every one doesn’t have the ability to teach if women will join the field of journalism and media for job then soon society will change their mind and accept it.

Problems of Female Journalists
Some female reporters say that during coverage of some procession, dharna or any crowdie place. Boys not only taunt them but also harass sexually and even some try to stop them from coverage. If the reporter says a single word against their attitude then more combative behavior can be seen. Many few girls join this field after studying Broadcast journalism or Mass communication. Firstly they have to face hindrance from family. If they join then social problems and attitude of some evil minded people would stop them to prosper. There is another type of mentality existing in our society that women belong to media in any form whether they are in hosting, production, reporting, acting are not nice and noble. This perception is just on the basis that such ladies talk brazenly on social and unethical practices. This concept is entirely wrong and being a responsible citizen. It is the duty of every individual to change this set of mind. For this matter Shakespeare said ‘Nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so’. Every profession is good and is a way of earning. With the passage of time new professions along with new inventions are introducing. All these things help to foster development of a country. But society specifies everything according to its own needs and mental level.

Positive Attitude Is The Need
We have to change our direction of thinking. Sometimes thinking liberally is the need and better for us and nation. If we start thinking positive then every profession will be decent. Male members should be taught the duty and rights of women in universities level. They are the protector of the females not the harassers. Because they are the one who can pave the way for females’. So first of all their mentality should be made sophisticated. Our country will compete only if both genders work together. In this way not only their standard of living is improved but also progress starts in the country.
