The following videos are unscripted interviews and real stories from women who faced call and message harassment. Hear their stories, and join the conversation by sharing your experiences. #ItsNotOK

It starts with an innocent ‘Hi,’ ‘Hello,’ ‘How are you?’
But never ends there.

No matter where you are, who you are and what you do, these calls and messages seem to mutate into an ugly truth that we’ve grown to accept as a normal behaviour pattern.

‘Chalta hai’ attitude.

For decades, we’ve talked about it behind closed doors, between friends, or handed our phones to others, but never took a stand.
Harassment over a call, lewd and inappropriate messages crawl up into our phones every day. We ignore them, grow numb towards them, but this is not normal.

It’s time to identify this faceless monster and bring them to light.
It’s time to say this is not normal.
It’s time to rise, speak up, take a stand and tell them – It’s not Ok.
