To be chased all the time down the road of life is not easy, for any human being. This is even harder if you are not welcomed to the world as a part of the “wrong” gender. We believe that we live in an enlightened world, but the treatment of women in every place all over the world tells us different. And there is a new cloud forming in the sky that will shadow the sun even more for the already unfortunate women of this world.
On this day, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, we also need to take notice of one of the most recent inventions in abusing women, technology. During the evolvement of technology (mostly the mobile technology) the last couple of years we have seen a rise in regimes use of technology to control and persecute its citizen. Now it is the time for the women to be controlled in the same cruel way.
In many places of the world, men start using technology to control their women and follow them virtually so that they do not visit places that they should not visit. If a woman must, for some reason, diverge from their regular route, it will probably give an increase in violence against women. Technology, have been very frutiful in the fight for freedom during the Arab spring. Although, to use it in this vicious way will give the mankind a setback for a long time. It is not an easy task for the companies that are manufacturing these devices to cope with, but they must do everything they can to block this service.
Women should not be held in more chain then they already are and the freedom to go wherever they want and to do whatever they want, can never be disregarded.
