Building a world where there is no harassment

In India, the rate of crimes against women has risen dramatically since the horrific Delhi Gang rape case in 2012. In streets and alleyways across Bangalore, communities are often vulnerable to crimes as they lack the power to report these crimes to the authorities. I shot this photo with a young woman, her child and other little children in the colony in Domlur, a township in Bangalore which often faces the brunt of rapid urbanization as it is wedged between two upper middle-class neighbourhoods. Young girls in several colonies like this don't have anywhere to go to when they are teased, molested or physically abused in any way. I hope this is a strong message that urges everyone to take responsibility.
