This is a call to action. Everyone who’s cringed or raged about violence against women, YOU can be a change-maker. Back our Modern Day Dandi March. Violence against women is perpetually in the news these days and is a slap in the face of India and its claim to its modernity and progress. We are tired of hearing that India is NOT a country for Women, tired of just waiting for someone else to bring about CHANGE.
This is a shout out to you, our fellow countrymen and change-makers across the world.
This September, Srishti Bakshi, on her Modern Day Dandi March, will be walking 3800 km (2300 miles) from Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu (South India) to Srinagar, Kashmir (North India). With this on-foot journey, we hope to collect ONE BILLION STEPS, from you towards making India a safer country for women.
