i have tracked blank noise for about a year now. what jasmeen, hemangini, annie and chinmayee are doing, follows in the finest tradition of art — using it to hold up a mirror to society, forcing us to examine ourselves.
and so, this blog would like to be counted as one supporting the blank noise 2007 blogathon. read their words below. and spread the message.
share. talk. inspire. understand. tell. speak. hear. be heard. narrate. voice. throw open.
When did you flip a situation so you could resist, when did you give back as hard as you got? When and how did you choose to confront? When did you become an Action Hero?
Being a ‘HERO’ is relative . We are interested in knowing how you challenged yourself or didint feel victimised?
This is an attempt to understand how different women ( across age groups/ cultures/ communities) have dealt with street sexual harassment in their everyday lives. Male bloggers are encouraged to share stories of women in their lives and how they have dealt with street sexual harassment. Non bloggers are also invited to participate- email us your story. We will upload your email at http://www.blanknoiseactionheroes.blogspot.com
You could also be an agent- the one that collects stories of confrontation/ of heroism from your mother, grandmother, cousins, domestic workers, people in your office, the vegetable vendor, the woman bus conductor…anyone!
To confirm your participation, announce the event on your blog and email us the link right away!
