Demonstration for women's rights in Cologne. "Keine Gewalt gegen Frauen" (no violence against women)

Demonstration for women’s rights in Cologne. “Keine Gewalt gegen Frauen” (no violence against women)

It wasn’t usual for me what I experienced nearly two weeks ago. On my way back home from work a group of boys passing by started whistling and singing songs in a language that was not English, Hindi, Urdu or German, the languages I recognize. It shocked me as it had never happened to me during my three years long stay in Germany. It shocked me even more when a similar incident happened to me again a few days later.

It is an ancient religious practice that still traps young girls in India in a life of sexual exploitation.
