Rape Culture Is All Of Our Conversation3:22 PM
Two women created an insanely important viral video. The Bombaebs video is called Rap Against Rape and it sheds light on crime in India. It's a must watch.
Why We Need To Discuss Rape CultureRape culture isn't a feminist topic or a woman's topic, it's all of our conversation because we're all human beings. Two Mumbai women, Pankhuri Awasthi and Uppekha Jain are now known as The Bombaebs because of their viral video #RapAgainstRape. It's chilling, eye-opening, and ridiculously well done. It's also a must-watch. The more we discuss rape culture, the less pervasive it will become. We need to stand with our sisters in arms and listen when they talk, or in this case when they rap.
