Three quar­ters of peo­ple say they have been ha­rassed on the street

7 Days in Dubai - - BEAUTY -

“Women get scared in case they be­come the cul­prit and not seen as vic­tim. They are made to feel as the guilty one. That’s why.”


“This hap­pens at Mamzar beach park as well. Men ha­rass beach go­ing sin­gle women, ask­ing for num­ber and fol­low­ing them.”


“It hap­pened to me be­fore in rigga, a guy grab my be­hind. We shouted at him and tried to catch him but no body helped us.”


“It is when you have to tell them no about 10 times in at least 3 dif­fer­ent lan­guages...”


“It’s time for us to speak up be­cause it’s too much even in the malls some­one can fol­low you. I have been fol­lowed so many times at a point I need to hide some­where or con­front the man and tell them I will call the po­lice. In the mall walk­ing down the streets. It’s re­ally scary.”


“We had to shift from Deira be­cause of this nuisance.” KAILASH LAKHWANI
