No, I understand that it is a huge problem. I believe the only way we can fix it is to ban together as women.

Its such a common thing for women to experience unwanted touch, X-ray vision looks while traveling by public transportation. We need a best laws to protect women from these devils. We have accent culture which says women are goddess , but when a girl walk on road at night 10 pm she has to prey god to protect her from worst situation.

I am being mumbai girl experienced harassment, bad behavior in day to day life , while traveling for school & all. My mom used to tell me to never travel alone after 9 pm, Its still a rule in most of families. Main reason is men think women are weak, they can't protect themselves.

not shocked at all. Love these ladies! one of them looks like Amal Cloony.

Yes/Agree

I'm sadly not shocked. In some developing countries, abusing women and girls is a way of life, it's a culture. Even in the western world, esp the US, there is a campus rape epidemic happening so, I am not shocked.

Yes/Agree

That's a horrific statistic, but I could not be more thrilled to have BomBaebs fighting for awareness and change.

Yes/Agree

The statistics on rape around the world are horrific. I hope everyone gets shocked awake and will be called to action.

Not Sure

Shocked, no. Appalled, yes. Violence against women is a global epidemic, and the BomBaebs are doing their part to spread awareness (and doing it with style).

Yes/Agree

We MUST do better by our girls and women.

Yes/Agree

Of course I'm shocked and disgusted and upset by the amount of sexual violence women face in this world. It's like a perverted rite of passage. But I love and respect the BomBaebs for speaking out in a society that is hostile to their views. This epidemic can't be tolerated or accepted any longer.
