The idea that the way a woman dresses invites sexual harassment or rape is a familiar one. It is used as a means to undermine survivors' allegations in court cases, in the media and by perpetrators themselves to justify their actions. The Blank Noise Project in India challenges these preconceptions, arguing that if this is really the case, then why do women in everyday, non-revealing clothing still have harassment stories to tell?
