What You Can Do

As an Organisation or Community

  • Support the media campaign

    We have launched a media campaign against all forms of sexual harassment in public spaces, even staring. This 35 second ad film has been prepared by FCB Ulka Advertising as part of their commitment to the issue. We are approaching TV channels, Cable TV, cinemas and food courts/malls with screens to air this spot as their contribution to the issue and campaign. If you are a media house, or have connection with a media house, please help us get this film on air. Click here to view the film

  • Distribute helpline booklets to members of your organisation/community

    JAGORI has produced pocket–sized booklets with all the emergency numbers for Delhi including women’s organizations, shelters, police, hospitals etc. It can fit in a handbag. This is an extremely useful book that all girls and women should have. If you are an organization, you can give it to all your employees; to all your students; or even friends, family and community.

  • Instate a Sexual Harassment Policy in your organisation

    The Supreme Court of India has mandated that as per the Vishaka judgement of 1997, every organization must have an Anti- Sexual Harassment Policy with a committee to look into the issue. There is a severe gap in implementation and there are many hundreds of organizations in the country that have not set up a policy. You must advocate for a policy in your workplace. It is also the responsibility of the employer to educate the employees about the policy and set up mechanisms of prevention.

  • Organise a workshop on gender and space/safety of women in your school/college/organisation

    We have been conducting two-hour workshops with different groups of people on understanding the issue of how cities and public spaces are gendered and collectively developing strategies to deal with the sexual harassment. If you would like to organize this workshop in your school, college, office, community, write to us on safedelhi@jagori.org

  • Organise a Wenlido Self Defence Training for women in your community

    Wenlido is a form of martial arts which is rooted in feminist philosophy. These workshops are a two-day process where women are taught to understand violence and face fear and understand their strengths.

    There is also a four-hour introductory module that can be done.

    You can contact JAGORI to connect you to trained resource persons on the Wenlido network. Also you can contact CII if you are a member organization, as they have a tie up with JAGORI to deliver Wenlido training to their women members over the next one year.

As an Individual

  • Speak up against sexual harassment

    Every time we stay silent when we get harassed or when we see someone else getting harassed, we are guilty of perpetuating harassment. While it is difficult to respond in certain situations, we must not miss an opportunity when it presents itself. Thus if it is on a crowded bus, you can raise an alarm, or catch hold of the hand that is harassing you.
    It is equally if not more important to lend a hand to someone else who is getting harassed and sent out the message loud and clear that “We as a city will not tolerate this”.

  • Write about the campaign on your blog, newsletter, website, newspaper

    We would be happy if you shared information about the campaign in different networks and publications that you have access to. We would also be happy to disseminate any related information.

  • Get your community involved

    There are many ways to get your family, colleagues, friends and larger community involved. You could conduct a safety audit, distribute publicity material, and identify issues causing lack of safety and report to the RWA or authorities. You could also get a session on women and safety organized with the support of JAGORI.

  • Pick up your Safe Delhi T-shirt today

    We have produced a bright yellow T-shirt with the message of making the city safe for women. (Suggested contribution: Rs. 120)

  • Share your personal experiences

    Almost all women living in cities and especially in Delhi have had some experience of sexual harassment in a public place at some time. We ask you to share these experiences as well any strategies that have helped you deal with it in our ‘Personal Experiences’ and ‘Tips and Strategies’ sections.

    i am a student of delhi university, and i see sexual harrasment at every corner of the north campus. a girl coming in the first year has faces an onslaught of stalkers- batchmates to seniors, and even the pass-outs who perrenially hang around the colleges. the girl rarely knows anybody and this makes her an easy target. any girl will tell you (and i know scores of them) that they have had to change their phone numbers so many times, because the number of calls of the like-”may i have friendship with you” and worse “i love your body (anatomy discussed) and would you let me have *** ….” are numerous.
    in the colleges as well as in areas around it one can always find those gym-toned body builders and otherwise guys too, trying to harass girls in full public view. spend some time in kamala nagar market (adjacent to hansraj college) in the evening and you’ll see that staring and comments are a norm. those guys know that police wont do anything and the girl is too scared to even react.
    in the backlanes, there have been instances of grabbing and molestation, as well. the private hostels have monstorous owners (male) who generally indulge in sly remarks and staring. there are hostels where croonies of the owner (belonging to nearby chandrawal village) sit around the entrance all day long and their stares are a menace. hostels have seen drunk owners on days like holi and new year (when the fact that few girls remain in the hostel..others go back home..makes it a happy situation for the owner), tryin to grab them and kiss them. this incidence went unreported with the police, because the girl was too scared to even tell her parents.

    north campus is a hell-hole for girls who stay around the area.as it gets dark, it becomes a poaching ground for villains. shopkeepers, gym-trainers- al of them harass and molest girls on a daily basis.

    i have certain ideas about how we can improve the scenario, but i dont know how to. i would love to work with you to make it a safe place.

    to start with “hidden cameras” will be a good tool. what i mean is a sort of sting operation, catch those rascals on camera and air the thing on telivision, in picture halls, cafetaria screens. there are regular people who have been harassing women for years, and for them its a passtime.
    i think you guys will have access to telivision channels and you can carry this. this might look like a reactionary step but it is not. i think this will desist a lot of them.
    the number of lady police force is negligible in the university. during fests we can barely find a couple of them on duty, and the responce in case of a complaint is ,”madam, aap ghar jao.” period.
    this has to change. action-and immediate action must be taken.

    there are a lot many facets to it, and i’d want to discuss it with you people, because i somehow feel like you can make a huge difference. you probably cant imagine how perturbed i am over this. i have had street fights and friction in my college tryin to stand up for my friends (girls). and i cant turn my face in the other direction when i see this happening.
    please, get in touch with me. i want to work with you.

    I am glad to know that this type of organzations are here for help our city, I want to join this organization to do something for my city. thank you very much .

  8. Smriti Anand Says:

    I would like to know if someone is harrassing mentally then what action steps can be taken against that person.

  9. Smriti Anand Says:

    In my opinion, some firm steps need to be taken along with help of Indian lawyers to ensure that laws related to women are implemented in the right way or else breaking the silence will be of no use. It would be better to organize such camps in courts in various semi-urban areas and if lawyers can also be included in this movement and also in eliminating gender discrimination. Seminars and workshops should be organized in rural and semi-urban areas like villages in UP/Rajasthan/MP where women still believe in purdah system and dowry system still prevails.

  10. Krishna Chawla Says:

    I am a female employee working in govt. organisation in Delhi. In our office large number of female employees. Cases of sex. harassment do occur in our deptt. also. I am also a victim of sex.harass. at work place and I rasied voice against this and complained. But department had never took it seriously. When no action taken by the deptt. and the harassment including sex. harasment occured again then I filed a FIR and the case is going on in trial court. As my complaint affect higher officials of deptt. i.e. why no action is being taken against them. There is a nexus between the perpetrators and the management. Earliler I approached to Delhi Women Commission and National Women Commission also. I fileda writ petition in High Court in 2001 against my deptt. But the department did not took it seriously. Now my fate is depend only on the court decision. The case is going on in trial court since 2000. The department has not taken any disciplinary action against the officer which amounts to protecting such a debauch and corrupt officer for the reason best known to the senior officers of the department and I am constantly harassed by the accused and his accomplices, perpetrators etc. Due to the said delay the accused is trying to take undue advantage of the laxity of the department and I am being disgraced, humiliated with each passing day and it is getting difficult for me to work normally without being made subject to increasing torture and humiliation. I fervently hope that my request would be acceded to by your goodself in the general interest of women community and that of mine, in particular.

    I hate people who cant respect women how can they forget that they too have wife, mother and sister who is also a woman. How can they do to others which they cant think for their family members. I think it is all moral values which their parents have incorporated in ‘em. I see sometimes this happening on roads metro station but being alone cant help it some times i took charge but the woman herself walked away
