In the past few months, women’s safety, rape and the mindset of our societies has become the focal point of every conversation in the country. Women are riled up, especially the youth, because they’ve reached the end of their patience, and everyone is gunning for change.
We don’t know about you, but we’re firm believers that all forms of art have the power to relay a social message, and the BomBaebs’ rap video on rape just proves our point.
Pankhuri Awasthi and Uppekha Jain, two headstrong women from Mumbai put together a video titled #RapAgainstRape, and within 3 minutes and 7 seconds they address some pressing issues. They’re not rap artists, just two girls who are fed up with the state of affairs and urge their peer group to take a stand and make a change. It’s gone viral and while there are definitely some haters, props to these ladies for their effort to make a change.
If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look.
