In Bangalore men ‘Skirt the Issue’

India is one of the most dangerous places in the world for women to live in. To address this issue, with the recent terrible rape cases in mind, a small group of men took to the streets in Bangalore wearing a skirt.
It was an idea of Samarpita Samaddar and her friend Adithya Mallya: “I was furious over Alwar BJP MLA Banwari Lal Singhal’s statement banning girls wearing short skirts to school. As we spoke more about this, Adithya wondered if men wore skirts, would they get molested? That’s how we came up with a plan to walk on Brigade Road in skirts on January 12.”
