In a city of approximately 20 million people, it's only normal that many women use public transports to go to many parts of the city every day for different purposes. It's a disturbing phenomenon that most of these women have to suffer some form of sexual, verbal or physical harassment. According to a Brac study, 94 percent women commuting in public transport have experienced some form of harassment.
It's time women speak up against what they have to endure every day. Like the teenagers' protests, they too should make their voices heard and shake up the nation.
