India is said to be at no. 50 in “Best Countries For Women”, according to Best Countries report by US News and Wharton University. But unfortunately, Women’s in our country have to fight for every single reasons to get their human rights as there is no uncertainty about the status of women in India.
In all of this major problems, using a mobile phones for an Indian Girl is getting trumatic day by day. Sexual messeges, vulgar calls, blank calls from an anonymous person and the stalkers are making hard for a girl to use a mobile phone in this country.
Truecaller surveyed over 2,000 women aged between 15 to 35 across 15 Indian cities from January 20 to February 22.
India is a first country where Truecaller has conducted such a survey. The company has studied how such calls and messages impact women. India is Truecaller’s largest market with an estimated 150 million users.
As if eve-teasing and passing lame comments in public spaces is not enough, stalkers find it hard to let women stay peacefully even inside the boundaries of their homes.
One out of three women surveyed reported receiving sexual and inappropriate calls or text messages.
And the frequency of such calls is alarmingly high: Around 78 per cent women received calls with sexual and inappropriate content, while 82 per cent reported receiving inappropriate videos and pictures every week.
Sadly, Indian girls receives the highest no. of spam calls and blank calls on an average of every month.
