The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.

  • Albert Einstein.

Today, our world is endangered because of the grave injustice unleashed upon it by fellow human beings who have found themselves in the position of power.

Unlawful detention, extra judicial killings, human trafficking, organ trafficking, child labour, slavery, gender discrimination, gender violence, police brutality, social media clampdown, press victimization, racism, etc are some of the injustices confronting our world today. Do we fold our hands and do nothing about it? Absolutely no!

We believe that Steemit is not an ordinary social network, it can be used as a tool of social change; to speak against injustice, to create awareness about injustice and to give relief to the oppressed in the society.

In this edition of the TOGETHER AGAINST INJUSTICE CONTEST, write an essay (not more than 250 words) condemning rape. Tell us why the victims of rape (mostly women and girls) should not be blamed and stigmatized for being raped, and what you think can be done to prevent rape.

Rape is a heinous crime which is committed more and more with every passing day. It renders life of a person hopeless and lifeless.it needs to be brought to an end. I think moral education must be given to children right from beginning and females shouls be trained as to what to do and how to save themselves when they fear a threat of rape

The problem of the world, we can map some of the events that exist, which can illustrate how exactly the world problem.

Some facts have testified that economic injustices often have a negative impact on people's lives. Resistance by the way of violence becomes an option because victims of this injustice have long lived in misery.

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #37. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest List I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

Thanks for having this contest listed. Keep up the good work.

It's an excellent contest, thanks for hosting it. I see there's been quite a bit of response too.

Yes. The entries are still coming in and we hope to continue hosting the contest regularly.

Thanks for having this contest listed. Keep up the good work.

Here is my entry

As I'm more of a story teller than a writer, I presented it in a story form

I hope it is admitted
