From leering to ogling, glaring to whistling women face mockery in some form or the other.
A woman cannot walk safely down a lane in today’s time without having a man turn his head around;
or whistle, stare or pass a comment.
Women have been facing this issue for more than decades.
Yet, as our society progresses with new developments and gadgets people are becoming more and more …
