This 30th of June,Saturday
we open the project to you by inviting you to participate in the next Blank Noise meet.
This meeting attempts to bring about and document a discussion about street sexual harassment/ eve teasing in the cities. It also
initiates a process following which the Blank Noise communities will intervene in the streets of their cities.

The street intervention will take place 2 weeks from the 30th of June- July 7th. The intervention idea will develop from a 2 week process the new team follows.

The meeting will re introduce you to Blank Noise/ history/ future/ present. It will be moderated by volunteers from your cities.

Blank Noise is open to everyone. Blank Noise is open to people from different age groups. Please be there if you are:

If you do not have 2 week commitment phobia :)

    Being a young man in late twentis,I have have a good history of getting involved in some of the so called "repuslvice" activities From my experience, I have seen girls and ladies who like it and of course there are some who doesn't. I also find that accepting a dominant male is part and parcel of the psyche of a woman, eventhough feminists will try hard to project otherwise...

    The point I am making is, in your zeal to put across your point you are overlooking some of basic and intricate trait of womenhood..!

    I challenge you to prove that a girls psyche doesnt long for an assertive and Macho dominant male in her enviorment and instead would prefer a meek ,spineless "Mam's Boy" as your boy friend..

    Expecing your reply -MachoGuy.
