Despite the marvellous feats of science and almost fairy-tale like creation of the technological world, this planet seems to be increasingly becoming an unsafe place for women to inhabit. Women are continuously living in an increasingly violent society in which the fear of crime is ever-present. Today, violence against women remains one of the biggest challenges. In the present descriptive study the researcher tries to explore how aware and prepared our females are about their safety. A random sample of 100 females reveals that we failed not only in providing a safe environment for them but also failed miserably in equipping and empowering them for their own protection.
