Thank you for sharing this!  Do you feel like it was prompted by any grassroots initiatives or was it more of a top-down approach from the government?

Dear sister leane m thanks for reverting and reading up but no govt has taken any step un india ti work about women safety..they talk about saving girls..but when i work on grounds the reality is different...there is a lot to wprked out..i hv taken a step to educate boys and men to talk about women safety as old tradition ,beliefs and men treat women as slaves..they feel women hv no right to express..talk about their feelings and so on..a lot of discrimination, abuse issues,molestation, childmarriagesetc happen here but the sound is very low.after 2 years educating girls about personal safety learnt a need to educate mens hence started journey of RESPECT SHE..long way to go..hv started alone but i know i need to work hard and call all of u to join and support me
