Last week I went to see a play about the lady who was brutally assaulted in many ways in Delhi a few years ago. I was upset and disturbed on many levels- not the fact that I used to do that route many times, not the fact that it was less than 5km from my house, not the fact that it could have been anyone I know but the fact that there are so many others who don’t speak up and go through it every single day, globally.
The day I spoke up about my experiences, the day I took charge of them and didn’t wear them as a badge of shame, the day I accepted it was a beautiful moment- it took me years to get to it but when I did, I am glad I did!
To the men who had a part in this- you have been forgiven but not forgotten and I certainly wish no woman in your family has to endure this!
All the best.
