On Friday, 5th Jan, Abhishek Chauhan @BUDDYABI conducted a tweetchat on Safety issues during festivals.
Festivals are meant to be celebrated with joy and to have fun but festivals have transformed into an opportunity for molesters to sexually harass people especially women and girls. The chat began with how the safety of people is compromised at festivals and which safety issues arise during festivals and social gatherings. The massive crowds during the festivals serve as a camouflage for the molesters and perpetrators. We need to raise awareness about these cultural practices that affect women and girls and begin taking preventive and proactive measures so that such instances end and women feel safer while celebrating the festivals.
