Ripped Jeans aur Kitab.
The country’s ‘sanskriti’ & ‘sanskaar’ are impacted by men who sit and judge women and their choices. Soch badlo Mukhyamantri Rawat ji, tabhi desh badlega. #RippedJeansTwitter pic.twitter.com/qYXcN88fY6

Rapes happen not because women wear short clothes but because men like Tirath Singh Rawat propagate mysogyny and fail to do their duty.

It’s not the ripped jeans that’s the problem, it’s the ripped mentality that’s the problem.#RippedJeansTwitter

#RippedJeansTwitter – the message to Uttarakhand CM is – women will wear what they like. You stop staring, stop judging, stop the misogyny.
