How Revealing!

This is a safe space to share your experiences of sexual assault, sexual abuse and sexism from across India. You can post anonymously, be of any gender identity and need not be someone who has directly experienced it.

How revealing is meant to help as a space to legitimize the complex emotions and reactions that accompany these experiences – whether you are at the receiving end or you are someone who sees it happening around you.
