This year we’ve seen a number of crimes committed against women being highlighted. These cases, including that of a girl being gang raped in a bus by 6 men, have shaken us to the core. We can protest. We can light candles and hold up signs. We can shout till our throats are sore to get the government and police to take action.
This year we’ve decided to take that responsibility on to ourselves. The police cannot be everywhere, but we can. Each one of us can take the responsibility to keep our cities safe.
We can PLEDGE to speak up when we see a woman being harassed on the streets.
We can PLEDGE to intervene when a woman is being raped.
We can PLEDGE to simply dial 100 or 1091 to save a woman’s life and dignity.
There is so much that we, as a community, can do to stop crimes against women. I urge each and every one of you to come and take this pledge with us.
