It has been almost a year since the #MeToo movement picked up steam in India, and yet, we are still seeing horrific cases of sexual harassment and assault come to light. The latest is that of Sakshi Aggarwal, a Chennai-based woman who was allegedly stalked and harassed by her neighbour for over two years. In a series of tweets, Sakshi detailed the ordeal she went through at the hands of this man, who not only followed her and made lewd comments towards her, but also threatened to kill her if she did not reciprocate his advances. Thankfully, Sakshi was able to get a restraining order against him, but the case highlights the larger problem of stalking and sexual harassment in India.

We need to start by teaching young boys and girls that stalking is not acceptable behaviour. Stalking is a serious issue that can have devastating consequences for the victim. It is important to report any incidents of stalking to the police so they can investigate and take action against the perpetrator.
There are also some things you can do to reduce your risk of becoming a victim of stalking, such as being aware of your surroundings and who is around you, being cautious about giving out personal information online, and telling someone you trust if you think you are being followed or stalked.
Sakshi Aggarwal’s story is a powerful reminder that we all need to be vigilant when it comes to our safety. As women, we are often told to be careful about what we wear, how we conduct ourselves, and even where we go. But the truth is, no matter how careful we are, there will always be people who choose to prey on us. That is why it is so important for women to stick together and support each other through these difficult times. We must also remember to speak up and fight back against our attackers — because only then can we hope to make a change.
