Rallies against sexism
MUMBAI: Women’s groups in India are planning nationwide rallies on January 21 to protest against the alleged mass molestation in the city of Bengaluru on New Year’s eve, and politicians subsequently blaming the women for the crime.
The India protests, publicised under the hashtag #IWillGoOut on social media, are meant to coincide with the “Million Women March”after Donald Trump’s inauguration as US president.
Several women said they were groped by a mob on December 31. Some politicians blamed their “Western culture” – dressing inappropriately and staying out late.
