I NEVER ASK FOR IT: Blank Noise Street Action - Calling all Action Heroes
Action Hero n. a woman who has dealt with street sexual harassment by confronting it. Her final response might have been to choose to ignore the harassment, but she will have chosen to do so, not failed to notice it.
And you can be an Action Hero by participating in our all-India street intervention 'I Never Ask For It', on 8 March 2008 in your city between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
The Blank Noise street action challenges you to be an Action Hero. Participants are requested to come wearing a garment they wore when they were sexually harassed. By doing so, they are actively taking a stand that reads 'I never ask for it'. The only other requirement is - be yourself.
Public safety is every citizen's concern, and men are welcome too.
Location per city will be shared on the blog shortly. Sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org with your city name mentioned in the subject line!
