We’re seriously applauding these two women, Uppekha Jain & Pankhuri Awasthi, for expressing their stand on the subject of sexual harassment in India with so much enthusiasm in this "Rap Against Rape" video. It definitely captured our attention and we hope it does yours as well! They’ve revisited some topics we debate about every day, and make some new points that have given us more to think about:
Periods are considered dirty, but you don’t mind it when the same woman is flirting with you.
A rape victim has to hide her face because she's "dirty", while a pornstar is a celebrity.
While beef is banned, criminals are still allowed in Parliament.
Chants of "Mera Bharat mahaan", but no father declaring “Meri beti, meri shaan”
Men want to date the hottest girls, but they will marry the virginal ones.
Women are blamed for being out alone at night, but if she is accompanied by a man, her character comes into question.
