Dolvi oswal Catherine Thomas BA LLB 3 November 2014 WOMEN AND GIRLS TRAFFICKING IN RURAL INDIA AND THEIR SEXUAL EXPLOITATION This paper deals with the deep analysis of the condition of women trafficking in rural India and how they are exploited. We are not unacquainted about this type of outrageous issue as we all have read books, newspapers, seen movies which deal with it. But the question I want to pose is why such incidents are happening and what are the reasons behind it? The act of trafficking violates the rights of the trafficked person and therefore it is punishable in the Indian legal system. The women trafficked are tortured, drugged and murdered every day.

The psychological impacts of a patriarchal society are seen throughout the production. Paulina is not only the victim of a crime, but also the victim of a society that has acted in a misogynistic way toward her. An interesting idea that Dorfman explores is whether this victimisation has served Paulina a significant disadvantage. Gender inequality seems prevalent throughout the play, particularly demonstrated through the relationship between Gerardo and Paulina. When Gerardo returns home in the first act, Paulina questions him regarding the truth commission leading to the revelation Gerardo has accepted a job that deals directly with the assault she faced without asking her beforehand.

Until she is a teenager, her mother is forced to dress and bathe her (Marquez 196). She rejects all advances made by the men of the town, not because she is not interested, but because she is unable to truly comprehend their interest in her, calling one man who is infatuated with her beauty a “simpleton” (Marquez 197). Pilar Ternera, quite unlike the other two women, is portrayed as powerful over her own sexuality. She serves as an object of early infatuation for both Colonel Aureliano and Jose Arcadio Buendia and goes on to be the mother of both of their children (Marquez 26-31). She even manages to defend herself when one of her sons attempts to assault her, not knowing that she is in fact his mother.
However some female characters like Soraya the prostitute, eventually overrule their men counterparts and stand up for their own cause after periods of hardship and exploitation. Characters such as Melanie Isaacs, Lucy Lurie and Bev Shaw all illustrate vividly the bad image that is associated with females at this current point in society through their everyday experiences. J. M. Coetzee brilliantly expresses the hardship and the poor way women are represented through his literacy techniques and through the realism of the history of this
Society has taught us to blame the prostitute for the violent things that occur to them simply because they chose this profession. But this is a form of unjust harm unto the prostitute. Moloney states “to blame the vulnerable and the victimized rather than helping them is surely contrary to the care and concern modelled by Jesus” (14).

An Investigation of Battle for Survival in Mahasweta Devi's Rudali Presentation Mahasweta Devi was an Indian Bengali fiction author and a social dissident. Rudali is one of her most commended works. In the greater part of her works, Mahasweta Devi has attempted to handle and address the turbulances of rank, sex and class in the notable setting of the Brahmanic position patriarchy.
