BANGLADESH: When sexual harassment leads to suicide

The streets have turned more dangerous for girls; sexual harassment has driven them to drop out of school — even to suicide

DHAKA, 13 December 2010 (IRIN) – Sexual harassment against girls and women in Bangladesh is turning deadly: 28 women have committed suicide this year and another seven attempted it to escape frequent sexual harassment, says a Dhaka-based human rights organization, Ain O Salish Kendra (ASK).

A father also committed suicide fearing social insult after his daughter was harassed and in other cases, stalkers killed three women, reported the NGO.

According to the Bangladesh National Women Lawyers’ Association, almost 90 percent of girls aged 10-18 years have experienced what is known locally as “eve-teasing”,  where boys intercept girls on the street, and shout obscenities, laugh at them or grab their clothes.

Eve-teasing has escalated ever since girls and women started entering formal education and employment in larger numbers in the 1980s, said Paul Subrata Malakar, from the NGO Plan International, in Dhaka.


On 16 November, Sharmin*, a 20-year-old student in Dinanjpur, (400km northwest of Dhaka), was returning home from college when a stalker forcibly held her hand and tried to hug her.

Since then, her parents say, she has stopped going to college.

“As sexual violence is happening on the way to school, it will panic parents and the parents will discourage their daughters from going to school,” said Rekha Saha, director of Dhaka-based NGO, Steps Towards Development.

In a country where 1.5 million girls (out of 10.4 million eligible) are not enrolled in school, an unknown number are avoiding school out of fear and humiliation of daily harassment.

Since January of this year, ASK has received 61 complaints from girls who had dropped out of school because they were harassed.

Moreover, in a country where more than 64 percent of girls marry before they are 18, some parents have pushed eve-teasing victims into early marriage to “protect” their honour and safety, said Malakar and Saha.


Ishrat Shamim, a gender studies expert and professor of sociology at Dhaka University, is calling for further investigation into the causes of the rise in violence against women.

“[The] mindset of both men and women is important. Many men, also women, believe women are second-class citizens after men. [While] women’s participation in education, the labour force and other activities is increasing, men are not yet to get used to seeing women outside the home.”

Changing this mindset has proven to be a long-standing obstacle.

“In a male-dominant society, eve-teasing can be viewed as a rite of passage for boys on their way to becoming men,” said Malakar of Plan International. “All the steps [we take] will be futile unless the male segment of the society change its patriarchal mindset.”

The fact that girls are hesitant to report violence has made studying and fighting the phenomenon even more difficult.

“Many girls believe that if they complain, their parents and community leaders will blame her,” said Sayeda*, a 14-year-old student in the capital, Dhaka.

Word is very first and i think our country known this very well so that result is mobile banking Bangladesh warming to m-banking

Mobile banking services in Bangladesh are gaining popularity by the day, having impressively clocked in over six lakh subscribers in only a year.

Mobile banking, or m-banking for short, enables banking services like balance checks, domestic and international fund transfers, credit applications, bill payments and so on through mobile devices.

Dutch Bangla Bangladesh Ltd (DBBL), with support from Citycell and Banglalink, first introduced m-banking in Bangladesh on March 31, 2011.

A maximum of Tk 10,000 can be sent at a time and Tk 25,000 a month via mobile banking.

Das Gupta Asim Kumar, an executive director of Bangladesh Bank, feels m-banking has great potential in bringing in unbanked and rural populations under the banking umbrella.

There are more than nine crore mobile subscribers in the country, while only 15 to 20 percent of the population use banking services.

�So if the unbanked people, who happen to be mobile users, are drawn in through the m-banking channel, it would be beneficial for all,.

He said that 22 banks have been given the approval to run mobile banking, of which 14 have already introduced the service to their customers.

BRAC Bank and DBBL have done very well, while Bank Asia is catching up fast, said Asim Kumar.

�We are encouraging banks to sign agreements with corporate offices and garment factories to provide workers' salaries through mobile phones.�

Md Badshah Alam, a professional car driver in Dhaka, said he often sends money, especially to his village, by mobile.

�When I send money it takes no time at all. The money goes with the SMS and the charge is less than courier services,� said Alam about the efficiency of m-banking.

He further said a friend of his even uses m-banking to pay restaurant bills.

Kamal S Quadir, chief executive officer of bKash, an m-banking service of BRAC Bank and Money in Motion, USA, said they have more than 10,000 agents countrywide to serve the 425,000 registered subscribers. However, 20 percent of the subscribers actively use the service.

�bKash is handling 30,000 customers a day on an average,� he said.

The bank charges Tk 2 per transaction when the receiver encashes the money, while the average per transaction is Tk 1,120, said the bKash CEO.

bKash has signed corporate agreements with seven organisations, including Robi, to provide salary to the their local officials, Quadir said.

The country's many mega shops, too, have introduced the service.

�All kinds of utility bills can be paid through the service. But people are still apprehensive of using their devices for anything beyond the core mobile services,� Asim Kumar said.

�Educating people about the security and efficiency of m-banking is the biggest challenge.�

BBA Discussion Forum / Re: Business Networking as a course
« on: December 03, 2012, 11:25:13 PM »
Business Networking is a really valuable way to expand your knowledge, learn from the success of others, attain new clients and tell others about your business.

I highly recommend business networking as a way to gain new clients and to build a sustainable business. Here are the top 9 benefits for business owners of getting involved in networking:
1.   Generation of referrals/Increased business

This is probably the most obvious benefit and the reason most business owners decide to participate in networking activities and join networking groups.

The great news is that the referrals that you get through networking are normally high quality and most of the time are even pre-qualified for you. You can then follow up on these referrals/leads and turn them into clients. So you are getting much higher quality leads from networking than other forms of marketing.

The increase in business from networking is the major advantage, but there are many others as well.
2.   Opportunities

With a motivated group of business owners comes an abundance of opportunities! There are always lots of opportunities that come from networking and in fact this is where the benefits of business networking are huge!

Opportunities like joint ventures, client leads, partnerships, speaking and writing opportunities, business or asset sales… the list goes on, and the opportunities within networking are really endless.

Just make sure you are jumping on board with the right opportunities and don’t go jumping into every opportunity that comes your way. The opportunities that you get involved in should align with your business goals/vision, otherwise you might find that you are spinning your wheels chasing after opportunity after opportunity and getting nowhere.
3.   Connections

“It’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know”. This is so true in business. If you want a really successful business, then you need to have a great source of relevant connections in your network that you can call on when you need them.

Networking provides you with a great source of connections, and really opens the door to talk to highly influential people that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to easily talk to or find.

It’s not just about who you are networking with directly either – that person will already have a network you can tap into as well. So ask the right questions to find out if the person you are networking with knows who you want to know!
4.   Advice

Having like-minded business owners to talk to also gives you the opportunity to get advice from them on all sorts of things related to your business or even your personal life and obtaining that important work-life balance.

Networking is a great way to tap into advice and expertise that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to get hold of. Just make sure you are getting solid advice from the right person – someone that actually knows about what you need to know and is not just giving you their opinion on something that they have no or very little experience in.
5.   Raising your profile

Being visible and getting noticed is a big benefit of networking. Make sure you regularly attend business and social events that will help to get your face known. You can then help to build your reputation as a knowledgeable, reliable and supportive person by offering useful information or tips to people who need it. You are also more likely to get more leads and referrals as you will be the one that pops into their head when they need what you offer.
6.   Positive Influence

The people that you hang around with and talk to do influence who you are and what you do, so it is important to be surrounding yourself with positive, uplifting people that help you to grow and thrive as a business owner. Networking is great for this, as business owners that are using networking are usually people that are really going for it, positive and uplifting.
7.   Increased confidence

By regularly networking, and pushing yourself to talk to people you don’t know, you will get increased confidence the more you do this. This is really important as a business owner, because your business growth is very dependant on talking to people and making connections.

Networking is great for people that aren’t confident as it really pushes them to grow and learn how to make conversations and lasting connections with people they don’t know.

I was certainly not confident when I started networking, in fact it completely petrified me! But as I do it more, the more confident I get and the easier it becomes, and the more benefit I get from it.
8.   Satisfaction from helping others

I really love helping other people, and networking is a fantastic way that allows me to do this easily. Networking is full of business owners that have problems or issues within their business that need solving, and there is great satisfaction from helping someone to solve a problem they have and get a fantastic result from it.
9.   Friendship

Lastly, this one is more personal related rather than business related, but is a big benefit none-the-less. Many friendships form as a result of networking because (mostly) you are all like-minded business owners that want to grow your businesses, and you meet and help each other regularly, so naturally strong friendships tend to form. Some of my strongest friendships have been started from networking.
