“Many women and girls have shared and reported various instances of harassment against them on the overhead bridge. They’d rather get killed by a vehicle then walk on the overhead [pedestrian] bridge. Hence, this was our opportunity to take- back the bridge,” Smriti RDN a field research coordinator with Safe Cities Nepal, told me over email.
“We are happy to announce that we were taken seriously and most of them responded positively towards our initiative. The take back the overhead bridge today was so effective that we are planning to do the same on other overhead bridges of the city in coming days too!!”Share on Facebook
