Make all sexual offences non-bailable and protect women against abuse in public places sign now


India is not new to sexual offenses against women, whether in public transport or in places like parks, cinemas or pubs. However, the present provision of Section 375 of Indian Penal Code does not consider eve-teasing and molestation as criminal offenses.

We request the Government of India to recommend a significant change to the Indian legal system, by making sexual offenses non-bailable, thereby strengthening every womans right to freedom and free movement without fear.

This is an appeal to all responsible citizens of India and the world to react strongly against all sexual crimes. By signing this petition, you will raise your voice against sexual abuse in public transport and places, against discrimination of any kind and unwarranted moral policing.

It is sincerely hoped that the Government takes note of this petition and makes it part of its objectives in upholding womens rights and well being.
