    Hello! The story of your Blank Noise campaign has reached Australia, i read of it today in The Age, I would like to congratulate you all for being so strong and independant. I spent some time in India in early 05 and the amount of sexual harrassment astounded me, gropped, touched and verbal abuse all the time for a month( i yelled an awful lot!), I cannot imagine living with those vulgar men all the time. I am so proud to be a woman when I see a woman and group of women standing up against something they no is wrong. I hope you are getting the support you need fromyour friends and family, a lot of bad behaviour is tolerated in Indiaby men and women alike. i am glad to see you are taking a stad!
    Congratulations and good luck!

    Hey!! Following Amber's comment, I read about your campaign in The Age as well and was very surprised that having lived in India for so many years I have never heard about The Blank Noise Project.Thats more a case of me feeling ashamed :/ Congratulations for all the hardwork!!! I have been in similar groping-touching situations in ChennĂ¡i's public transport and theatres. I'm in awe of women who take charge of bringing about social change. Congratulations again!!!
