#
The term “Sexual Objectification” is the basic instinct among men whenever they desire for sex with a particular female. It can also be called lust – Although lust has many forms one of which can be called “Sexual Objectification”. Although without any trigger men visualize women as sex objects, but there are several other ways which imbibe women as sex objects among men. So it can be called that due various reasons “Sexual Objectification” is rampant across the globe and due to which women live in fear of being raped without considering age.
 
If in a revolutionary manner we can make “Sexual Objectification” unacceptable socially, then sense of safety of women will increase.
 
During all crimes, women fear of becoming victim much more than men. According to a study by Laurel Watson from the University of Missouri – Kansas City. Crimes like murder, homicide, frauds are carried out more by men, but still women are more likely to be part of crime face-to-face. The study involved 133 African American and 95 white female undergraduates.
 
Watson said “The findings support the theory that women may have a greater fear of crime due to the potential of also being raped during these encounters”.
 
White women are less likely to be victims and experience “Sexual Objectification” lesser than African – American Women. African – American women are more likely to be affected by distress or trauma psychologically.
 
In Asia rape is tending to be epidemic where Women bear the pain much more than any other region.
 
Watson added that the main reason for rape is unequal power distribution among men and women. This unequal power distribution once curbed will help in reducing number of rapes as there won’t be any dominance of men socially. Men and Women should form partnerships to stop violence and rape. In this way mental block among women of being inferior will vanish.
 
Watson also figured out that Women at college level are raped or faced similar crime than Women who are not going to college.
 
According to Watson In their lifetime one in Five American women are raped.
In India ironically rape and other sexual offences happens from inside the family itself.
