Is sexual violence due to moral curbs, asks Madras High Court 17.12.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Madras High Court has asked the Centre and the Tamil Nadu government to explore the possibility of providing gadgets to women to prevent sexual violence which is on the rise even after stringent laws were brought in after the Nirbhaya incident.

If someone had suggested to Shruti Chandrashekharan a few years ago that she should take a nap at a public park, she would have laughed it off. But on Saturday, Shruti, a law graduate, joined several young women to have a relaxing stretch at Cubbon Park, a symbolic effort to regain the public space.

"We have been apprehensive of an act as simple as sleeping in a park due to the fear of being judged or being targeted for violence," Shruti said. "Though we have always aspired to be free, we are scared to act, and this initiative has helped me overcome those inhibitions and fears," she added. Two organisations - a volunteer-led project Blank Noise founded by Jasmeen Patheja and NGO Sangat established by author and activist ...
