Street Harassment In Kathmandu Unwelcome words and actions
by unknown persons in public
which are motivated by gender
and invade a person's physical
and emotional space in a disrespectful, creepy, startling, scary or insulting
way is called as street harassment. Types of street harassment Assault
Verbal Street Harassment has been
a big problem in the city like
Kathmandu. About 30,000
women and girls are harassed
on the street everyday.
This is a great problem and
we must speak against it. Most common type of harassment found in
the city of Kathmandu Emotional responses to experiences of
street harassment. How To: Respond to Harassment Always use strong body language:
Look the harasser in the eyes; speak in
a strong, clear voice. Using your voice,
facial expressions, and body language
together, without mixed signals, show
assertiveness and strength. Project confidence and calm. Even if you do not feel that way, it is important to appear calm, serious, and confident. Do not apologize, make an excuse, or ask a question. You do not need to say sorry for how you feel or what you want. Be firm. Instead of saying, ‘Excuse me…’ ‘I’m sorry, but…’ or ‘Please…’, say directly, ‘Stop doing X.’ Do not get into a dialogue with the harasser, try to reason with them, or answer their questions. You do not need to respond to diversions, questions, threats, blaming, or guilt-tripping. Stay on your own agenda. Stick to your point. Repeat your statement or leave. Do not swear or lose your temper: This type of reaction is the most likely to make the harasser respond with anger and violence and it also can make you seem like the one who is crazy or wrong when the harassment happens among a group of people, but no one sees what the harasser did to you. Decide when you’re done. Success is how you define it. If you said what you needed to say and you’re ready to leave, do so. Action Taken Against Street Harrasment of Kathmandu Hollaback Kathmandu is a website where we can share our stories about street harassment. It is initated by +2 girls to end the street harassment in Kathmandu. Role of safe city Nepal is also big as they have

Beside this, flash mobs were conducted in various places of Kathmand city like Basantapur, Patan, Mangalbazar to hollaback against street harassment. Different stories from different women and girls of Kathmandu. Motorcycle assault
On a day of Laxmi puja I decided to take a different route from home to meet my friend just around the corner. I heard a motorcycle behind my back slowly approaching so I gave way. The next thing I know is in broad daylight the man on the motorcycle reached for my buttocks. In horror I screamed while the man went ahead me, turned around, gave me a glance over his shoulder and waited. I froze and my mind shutdown and I literally stood there thinking what just happened? I was in shock and unconsciously I stood outside a strangers door for good 3-4 minutes just to make sure the motorcyclist is gone. And my stupidity is that I didn’t even memorise the number plate! I’m having conflicting ideas on what if I had his bike number?what if he comes back? and how worse could had it been in worst cause scenario?
As a social worker and women empowerment supporter I have always encouraged women to speak out and fight for their rights. But last week I found my self questioning whether Nepal as a new reformed country is still not ready to give equal opportunities to women and how long are we to suffer being treated as a sex object? Only 12
I am 21 year old woman. This incident occurred to me when I was 12 years old.
I was travelling in a public bus with my mum. my mum was just in front of me. As the bus reached koteshwor, a guy behind me grabbed my boobs. I was shocked at his act, and to be honest i didn’t even know what the guy was doing with me. The guy was right behind me, and I didn’t have the courage to look at his face, and the most embarrassing part is, I DID NOT HAVE THE COURAGE TO TELL MY OWN MOTHER!!!!! When I think of this now, I feel so sick!! So, all I want to say is that, we need to open up, and let the women of all age to know that there is no stigma in being a victim of sexual harassment. A school Girl
It happened 3 months ago. I was returning from Jawalakhel with my best friend. I was just gossiping with her. Suddenly we heard a voice from the back. We thought some one was calling us and we looked back. Oh my god!! we were shocked. There was a guy masturbating. We were very afraid and started running. Eventually, the guy was running and following us. We ran as fast as we could and at the end he was not following us anymore. Our legs were shivering and heart was beating fast. Our face turned completely blue. I was extremely shocked for I had never experienced such a thing in my life. For some days I was even afraid to go out of my house. But now I can HOLLABACK . I can speak against such types of violence. I can speak against the harassment. LG
I was walking home with a friend just after dark last night. A guy came behind us, grabbed me, stuck his hand up my skirt and groped me. It was all so quick I didn’t really realise what was happening. My friend and I both started to yell and the guy sprinted off the way he had come really quickly. He was wearing a hoodie and seemed quit young – twenties I’d say. Not sure what more to do – I wasn’t even walking on my own! Thank-You for watching the presentation hope you liked it
