A 9th standard student shares her story of gender based violence.

One day I was coming back from my tuition and the group of boys were sitting in the park that I usually cross while coming back. The boys sitting there abused me and also insulted me to which I was shocked and horrified.

Confused me ran very fast from there to home and told my father about the same. I was amazed by his answer that, “you should have slapped them instead and taught them a lesson so that they do not dare to do the same again to any girl.”

His words reassured confidence in me and I am firm enough now to not let anyone pass by just like that who tries to harass me.

But that incident still scares me if I think of it and it is daily reality for most of the girls and I wish each one of us becomes bold to face these situations with confidence.
