  1. How successful are your 'pamphlet distribution' activities. Is this done just to mobilize public opinion or what? Fill me in.

  9. Hi Jasmeen,

    Sunday's intervention was personally fulfilling and socially powerful. It was so great to see so many women coming together in unison to take a stand! I can't wait to do more.

  10. Hi Jasmeen and everyone with Blank Noise,

    Sunday's intervention was empowering and socially catalytic- thanks for the experience.

    It's personally reassuring to discover a unified group of women and men who oppose the humiliation of women- and are dedicated to ending the passive, fearful silence about public harassment.

    Thank you Blank Noise!

  12. Just wanted to say I've been following your work for some months, unable to participate since I live outside India, but aching with the understanding from my time in India of just how important it is. More power to you.
