Everyone deserves to be safe
What does a woman never leave home without? A safety pin, a pointed nail file, red chili powder -- some small weapon to fight off unwanted touches and grabs in public. When artist Jasmeen Patheja asked women to share this intimate detail of their lives, it made her point: everyone deserves safety. Her project, Blank Noise, helps to reclaim public safety for everyone through public projects that build trust and independence for everyone. Watch to the end for a thoughtful dialogue with host Shah Rukh Khan.
