Last Call To Register #WalkAlone : Towards Freedom From Fear

A tiny step for an Action Hero is a giant leap for all of us.  We are doing things we have long been warned against ! #WalkAlone
Yes! #INeverAskForIt!

We are thrilled to report :  #ActionHeroes are walking alone in solidarity from  Goa, Delhi, Bombay, Jaipur , Dawlish(Devon), Berlin, Braunschweig,  Pune, Bangalore , Lucknow , Kolkata and more!  We are also joined by Action Hero allies including Why Loiter, Take Back The Night Kolkata , Amnesty International India !

Where in Mumbai would you desire to Walk Alone?

To Walk Alone,Register here:

This is a solitary activity, Action Heroes are walking alone where they chose to. Should you at any point feel anxious, apprehensive , and prefer to walk in company instead, please don't hesitate to reach out, or even connect with a friend who wants to walk with you. You can also define the time limit, some of you may want to walk for the whole three hours, while someone else might want to walk for 45 minutes. We want the decisions to be intentional. We want you, our Action Hero to be in conversation with fear, on your own terms and most importantly, at your own pace, and not those defined anyone else's version of an Action Hero.

  • Have you walked, not having to think twice about the width of your smile,the length of your blouse,  skirt, tee neck, sleeve.
  • Have you clenched your fist so hard ,worn a frown, sharpened elbows out ?
  • Does your daily list of every place, person, garment you ‘avoid’/ deny reveal a larger something- that you decide where to go, how to go, what time to go, what clothes to go in, with whom to go based on your safety?
  • Have you too been warned, just like me, about places, our bodies, our clothes, our cities, our streets?
  • An environment that constantly reminds women and girls to be careful , is also messaging out “ you experienced violence because you were not being careful enough”. Warnings lead to blame, blame leads to silence and shame. Our environments need to be made safe and inclusive, rather than have women carry the weight of warnings and fear. #INeverAskForIt #WalkAlone Towards Freedom From Fear.
