Study:

One-third of girls across cities reported having received obscene calls or messages. Shockingly, nearly 75% girls from Bhubaneswar reported having received such calls followed by Hyderabad (65%) and Bangalore (28%). The study also found that 77% girls felt eve-teasing was the biggest challenge they faced in urban spaces and 74%, in fact, felt most vulnerable in public areas. About 40% girls coped with harassment by ignoring it.

I feel for those other 25% girls in Bhubaneshwar: They might suffer from inferiority complex.

Anywho, I can’t wait for the CWG to start so we can all be proud of our country and ignore such petty issues.

Speaking of women, 12,000 women are arrested in America every year for breastfeeding in public.
