I do not deserve to be violated because of what I wear: I NEVER ASK FOR IT.
We are having a clothes collection drive.
All Action Heroes will bring the garment worn at the time of experiencing street sexual harassment, street sexual intimidation, street sexual violence, or being ‘eve-teased’.
All Action Heroes will come wearing a garment they’ve always wanted to wear but did not wear before .
All Action Heroes will be agents, and spread the word, * bring a friend, start collecting clothes as they read this.
*Action Heroes can be male too- we call them the BN guy- and yes all BN guys can contribute too. We want our BN guys to propose ideas via which men can be involved, addressed in the issue of street sexual harassment. All ideas will be published on the blog and followed up if you commit! Are you a BN guy yet?
A big thank you in advance for linking, tweeting, facebooking and making it happen.
