Shocking ! Popular Tamil singer faces sexual assault

Crimes against women have become an everyday affair especially in Tamil Nadu  and especially those in the media have to suffer more often.  Chinmayi the popular singer and dubbing artiste who is known for fighting the cause for women has shared that she has once again been targeted. 

Chinmayi in her digital statement has stated "After almost aeons I got groped at an event yesterday. I happened to share this story on Instagram and what shocked me is how many men and women have been molested as children (teachers, brothers, co passengers, uncles, grandparents and even women.

"Most common places - Their own home, public transport, places of worship, educational institutions. Most girls and boys haven’t mustered the strength to share it with their family and friends coz no one would believe it. Even if girls have a chance of being heard, men have NONE"

"Men are shamed if they share an account of sexual assault/molestation during childhood. Women who gathered the courage to share have been blamed “she enjoyed it”. Imagine grown adults accusing a child of enjoying sexual assault. And other seemingly sane adults believing it."

Not to mention - women shaming other women who have been molested/harassed. And commenting on ‘you dress/look like that you are asking for it’ I think women need to be trained first on victim blaming and shaming."

"As for victims - speak up, yell, slap those who touch you without your consent. When groped we are temporarily stunned into silence - including me. This is usually the window the assaulter uses to his advantage. Finally, it is NOT your fault. Be kind on yourself. Love yourself."
