Groped & harassed, but victim-blaming keeps her silent

I am a school student. In my area there is a 99 percent chance that you get groped on crowded buses…so i often go to school by cycle…thinking that it was safe…..but i was wrong…. a guy on a scooter squeezed my breast with one hand and before i could react sped off..i was both physically hurt and psychologically disturbed…often people in our society blame the girl for being the victim…for not being careful…so i did not dare to share this with anyone..i hate sick men….most of the men in Chennai are sick.

  1. i am so sorry. No one should be touched like that ever, and to just be going to school, that is horrible. I’m glad you could share your story. I hope you will keep talking about harassment. That’s the best way to make it stop!!!
