THE STORY:

As a woman who grew up in the misogynistic society in India, where society not only refuses to acknowledge the systemic violence against women, but also has the audacity to blame victims and survivors of rape and sexual assault for their fate, I have often felt a strong desire to participate in a movement that can affect change in India. When I came across Usha Vishwakarma and her story, I knew I had found a much stronger kindred spirit. After surviving sexual assault, Usha didn't hide or be bullied into silence. She formed a group of 15 women who decided to fight for women's safety in India. This was in 2011. Since then, her grassroots initiative to spread awareness and teach self-defence techniques to young girls and women in India, has amassed 8500 active members. Dubbed "Red Brigade" by people who witnessed them publicly shaming rapists and holding them accountable, these girls dress in black and red, and travel countrywide conducting street plays, workshops, and teaching self-defence to young girls. They also provide counselling, medical, and legal aid to rape and acid attack victims in India. I would like to help these amazing women raise funds for their incredible efforts. Please join me in supporting the Red Brigade Trust.
