In the wake of the #MeToo movement, we introduce an initiative titled Radio City StreeDum wherein we address the issue of sexual harassment and urge women to speak up and put an end to the constant objectification of women.
In the wake of the ongoing Me Too movement, Pinkvilla along with Radio City has started an initiative- Radio City StreeDum, wherein we talk about women empowerment and address the issue of sexual harassment – be it at work, home or in public. Over the years, every women has been subjected to sexual harassment and sadly, whenever she mustered up the courage to speak up in public, she was silenced by the society. But as the Me Too movement is gaining momentum in India, it is time to hear their voices, give them the freedom they deserve but before that, educate men to put an end to the objectification of women.
In the video, we see Rj Salil and Archana start the episode addressing the issue of women empowerment and asking men- both the corporate honcho going to his office or the fruit wale bhaiya or chai wale bhaiya, to discontinue their habit of staring at women in public- from passing lewd comments to them or simply make her feel uncomfortable. Furthermore, they tell us to stop the objectification of women, to stop calling addressing them as ‘patakha’, ‘phooljadhi’ or ‘baby’ because they have an identity.
Thakns to all the Me Too stories that have surfaced on social media, RJ Salil requests all the women to stand united and tell the world that you are brave, that you have worked really hard to be where you are and that you deserve all the respect in the world. It’s a request to all the women to stand up with their head held high and tell all those men out there that ‘How to behave’. So, it is time for all the women to bring a change, because together we all are StreeDum. So, this Diwali 2019, as we worship the goddess of Lakshmi, we should make it a point to worship all forms of Laxmi.
