1091 to the Rescue
Kajal and Neetu reside in Girwai slum of Gwalior. One of the boys from within the slum would call them every now and them and talk cheap. Both tried to tell the boy that this is illegal and an punishable offence, however this was not enough to keep the boy from his deed. During the training on VAW Neetu learned about women helpline number 1091. When this eve-teasing became unbearable Neetu called 1091 and requested for support. Within 10 minutes police arrived and took the boy for questioning. After the couselling by police, the boy apologized and agreed to publicly withdraw his act. This one tiny initiative by Kajal and Neetu has given voice to many girls in the slum, and they feel more secured by having more information on their rights against VAW.
