Mohnish Moorjani is a real estate developer in Mumbai who has wit- nessed sexual harassment of women on streets a million times. But unlike most men, he has decided to do something about it. It’s a long shot, but he has started off with Shoot at Sight, an online group on Face- book where women can post pictures of eve teasers. The idea is to shame the offenders. “As a man, nothing pisses me off more than the sight of men shamelessly staring at my partner or friends...young men holding hands, who could either be lovers or sticking together because they are scared of something, check out every woman passing by as if it were ET doing squats,” says Moorjani, who regularly clicks eve teasers and puts up their mugs on his page.

The phrase "violence against women" calls for comment. It names the victims but not the perpetrators. The fact that men are mainly responsible for violent and health-harming behaviours, not only against women and children but also against each other, is so taken for granted that it slips beneath the radar of commentators and policymakers.
Stanly and Parashuram were researching a story in a village when they encountered Radhamma, a prostituted woman who challenged them to face up to the realities of women in prostitution, and opened their eyes to the horrors of trafficking. At the time, no other organisations in Mysore were supporting women in prostitution, and as two men, they have often been treated with suspicion.
To say that we are living through one of the most violent periods of human history would be an understatement. The scale and forms of violence we see today are no longer distant or remote spectacles that unfold on television or in newspapers. We can now see, hear and smell the violence, in our neighborhood, on our streets and in our homes.
