The Need for Change

Stories of sexual harassment and abuse in public spaces that highlight the reality of women's experiences.

These stories were part of the Photo exhibition by Devina Buckshee and Ojas Kolvankar for Red Dot Foundation. All stories were recorded with full consent.

"I was with my 14 year old sister, walking to the station in Vikhroli when I felt unsafe and scared. A group of young boys started saying things like "Kya chal rahi hai yaha" and harassing us. This was in the afternoon. In daylight. In a crowd of many people. No one said anything. I turned around and gave them some gaalis (curse words) and that's when everyone intervened. They scolded me! They asked me why I was here! I felt so bad because I thought they would obviously side with me. How can we even go to the police when no one supports us in public?"

Vaishali, Junior college student

"Staring and touching in buses is common."

Babita, Professor in an engineering college

"These things happen. It's common, why complain?"

Neha, Engineering student

"Brushing up on the platforms, footbridge. It's not because of crowd, that’s the excuse."
