This perfectly sums up what is wrong with the press in India, especially the vernacular press. Shameless objectification of women and propagation of patriarchal structures, reducing a lady’s worth to her face value. These are bold and brave officers working in the complex bureaucratic system in India, negotiating their way through the good , bad and ugly of our body politic- and here we have a list of officers whom people can ogle at. It’s seriously disgusting, constricting and very very demeaning to our identities as smart, intelligent self made women. Have you ever wondered why we never see a list of the most handsome males in the IAS and IPS ??
By Merin Joseph IPS Assistant Superintendent of Police
Reaction from the citizen of India against Media on their nonsense Article
Vishakha Ojha: “Really shameful…but this is what Indian media is all about…they forget that whoever has reached that position has done so on their individual merit and if IAS IPS were interested in exposing themselves they would have selected modelling and not this reputed profession..woman’s beauty is her intellect notface value..”
Hargovind Singh: “Couldn’t agree more.. Media should be more sensible and responsible.. Their reliance on making Masala News for TRP must be vehemently condemned..”
Saumya Sil: “Thanks ma’am for speaking out.. Some cripple-mined people have not only lost thier mind but also thier eyes it seems.. They dont see how a woman gets beyond her limitations to serve the nation.. They do not see the hard work.. Objectifying women is a curse.. Women are not showpeices to be rendered on shelves.. They have gone a long way and proved their worth.. Its high-time this retarded souls shud stop this nonsense !
Stop objectifying and start respecting !”
