Support An Event : I Never Ask For It Week * Sept 25 - ongoing
Blank Noise hosted I Never Ask For It week, bringing together three events

Walk Alone: Global
Action Heroes will wear multi lingual t-shirts that read Akeli, Awaara​, Azaad, meaning​ Alone, Wanderer, Free. To be alone, wandering, and free asserts our right to live unwarned. We ask for freedom from fear.
Action Hero Dialogues:
A dialogue with organizations, individuals and institutions examining warning, blame, fear, resistance. Most women and girls remember the clothes they were when they experienced sexual violence or harassment. We are raised in an environement that warns women and girls to “ be careful” , also translates as “ If you experienced violence, maybe you were not being careful enough. You ‘asked for it.’” There is no excuse for sexual or gender based violence. I Never Ask For It.

A Very Deliberate Manel : Suspicion
The programme begins in Bangalore, bringing together 21 men who wish to step in, to end violence against women, sexual and gender based violence. This is in the context of the I Never Ask For It Week, where all identifying as male respond to trust, blame, warnings, fear and suspicion.
