“All the policies are only for the walls. You have factories full of 2000 women and none of them know who they can approach. There’s no support for migrants who come to work here or sympathy from the police.” #MeToo #GarmentWorkersSpeak #bangalore
“When our colleague who was sexually violated by a supervisor for 3 years went to file a complaint, the response was ‘if it happened for so long, you must like him’”. #bangalore #metoo
“As women conductors on BMTC buses, we’re constantly being touched, groped and pushed up against. Men board these buses drunk and misbehave with us. We work so hard and can’t even have clean toilets to ourselves- there’s no safety in this job.” #bangalore #metoo
Civic sanitation workers/pourakarmikas: not paid for months, forced to work with contractors who repeatedly assault us and “when complain we are asked to leave.” #MeToo #bangalore
“Merely being transgender is enough for men to assume they can ask us for sex any time. When I was an anchor of a Kannada news show, by the third episode the director came to my house and assaulted me. Had to quit with no pay.” #bangalore #metoo
