Recently, the society stood against a middle-aged woman from the capital city of Delhi who claimed that girls wearing short clothes should be raped. She was convinced that girls wear short and revealing clothes to entice the rapists. Activists from Sayfty, an organisation that empowers women against sexual abuse, have found a perfect reply for victim-blaming attitudes in India and its rape culture. They have introduced ‘Anti-Rape Sarees’ to address the broader problem of blaming women for their clothes for sexual violence.The website, www. sanskari-saree.com explains sarcastically: "These Super Sanskari* Sarees are made with anti-rape technology and, according to some Indians, will make women invisible to rapists. Protect yourself from prying eyes and unwelcome penises with this ultra-modest collection. Because when there’s nothing to see, there’s nothing to rape."
