As India’s raucous spring festival of Holi approached this year, a memo circulated among two women’s sexual harassed at the University of Delhi.

Undergraduate women would be locked inside the student halls from 9pm on Sunday until 6pm on Monday, well after most Indians had finished dancing and drinking cups of bhang lassi.

Men Engage Delhi is one activist group that acknowledges the festival can be dangerous for women, and has teamed with other groups to campaign against the harassment.

But the campaign had experienced some backlash too. “Some feel that we have no right to make a fuss about a traditional festival.

“That will not stop us from campaigning for a safe Holi. Consent matters, even on Holi, and people have to be held accountable for such actions.”
