On Tuesday, a group of young women shared a video on social media in which an older woman allegedly harassed them over their dress choice. The incident took place at a restaurant in Gurugram. Here’s the video:
You’re recording no? Hello guys. These ladies want to wear short to short dresses to encourage all to see them. All these ladies wear short dresses or get naked to [get] raped.”
These are the words of a middle-aged woman who tells a group of young women in Delhi.
Meanwhile, the group stopped the woman at a store and demanded an apology from her. The video shows that she refused to talk to them and asked the store staff to call the police.
One of the women who was harassed wrote on her Facebook post, “This middle-aged woman you’ll see in the video addressed seven men at the restaurant to rape us because she felt we deserved it for wearing short clothes and bashing her unsolicited opinion. Our instinct was to turn away from the drama but supported by our colleagues, we took her on at a shopping centre, nearby. We gave her the chance to apologise, to no avail, of course. Nothing moved the needle for her, not even another woman who learned the story on the spot and implored her to apologise”.
At the end of the video, the woman decides to speak to the camera. “These ladies wear short dress to encourage all to see them,” she said. She also asked the parents to control the girls.
