25 May-2014: If you’re a woman and have been in a public place, chances are you’ve been the recipient of an unwanted leer or stare from a guy. Sometimes the staring turns into more. One year after Nirbhaya, a young girl in Delhi, was brutally raped on a bus, this Mumbai film school released a video highlighting the harassment and unwanted attention women face while just trying to go about their day. It’s meant to start a conversation about what empowerment for women looks like.
This problem isn’t unique to India, but it’s definitely a place to start the conversation.
