There is no shame in denying that there is already countless content in the ocean of internet making waves of trends on shores of social media. It consists of unnumbered hours of video, bytes of words, and pixels of infographics about what women feels.
No, this video does not have women speaking about genital sizes. No, this video does not have girls talking about drugs? No, this video does not have a tutorial what women want from us boys? In fact, it has the opposite. What they do not want. What they feel like crossing the line. What they feel like invasion in privacy. And we did not pick up
The camera just to throw light on this dark corner of our society, but to remove that spot by luminescence of change forever. Second agendum the video addresses under five minutes is the cure of the problem. We, at Indian Notion, believe to lend hands to bring change, rather than just pointing fingers.
What is it like to be a Woman using social media platform?
Answer to this question has been part of regular sets of famous comedians in past years, where audience gets knocked off to ironical satire how a girl is a nucleus of over attention from the so-called- the desperate other sex. Dismay to amazement, an undescribed, untold, inconceivable evil perpetuates masking the veil of laughter and gags.
This evil is aptly named online sexual harassment. This evil is the reason we devoted three months, hitting the streets, to capture emotions of women. Our core ideology at “The Indian Notion” is to learn and unlearn, demystify and declassify, shake and reshape the Indian ideology.
Online Sexual Harassment
These three words surfaced together most recently in trending news of how an actress’ reply to a troll who commented about her breasts on her picture. Yes, Vishakha Singh’s one reply that rose eyebrows of netizens irrespective of gender and platform. The shock-wave reaction that comment made is a witness in itself how ignored and unchecked this form of persecution is today, however prevalent it might be.
“That STRANGER in my Inbox."
Streets are DARK, the 'others' message folder is DARKER, and intentions of the ones sending them are DARKEST. A disturbing new trend has taken the exploitation of privacy to the most dreadful stage where a creep feels pride in sending graphic content, even a thought of which, in your sister, wife or friend’s inbox is disturbing on so many levels. Age when we as a society see ourselves winning the fight for equal rights for women, it is a sad reality that girls as a preventive approach, mostly from conservative background, are forced to use these media under aliases or not use it at all.
Here we present you the shadow of the unlighted story of Online Sexual Harassment being faced by Women today. THE INDIAN NOTION's First #NotionInMotion Uncovering the veil of ignorance and the mask of humor over this issue, because more this scar's ignored more the wound deepens.
What is it like to be a Woman using social media platform? What kind of messages does women get from strangers? There is limit to everything but these messages from these strangers are no way justified.
