Steemit, Together Against Injustice Contest #2: 250 words, 3 Winners, 6.5SBD Prize Pool + 2SBD bonus to the highest ranked upvoters.
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.
