My Safety Is My Right
By BIS Correspondent
Mumbai, Oct. 6. On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, the Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) organised a rally for 350 girls - from Mumbai slums - on 'Meri Suraksha, Mera Adhikar' which is 'My safety is my right' on October 2.

Father Rolvin D'Mello, Executive Director - DBDS, in his inaugural address asked participants to respect women as human beings and to ensure their dignity, safety and security is maintained.

DBDS has been active in the sector of women empowerment for several years and organised the rally primarily with the aim of creating awareness on the issue of women safety in the society at large and also to communicate to the police and other government sectors to put 'Girl Safety' as their top priority.

The rally began from the campus of Don Bosco (Matunga), towards King Circle, Sion Hospital and ended at the Don Bosco campus again. Throughout the course of rally, the participants shouted slogans on safety and security and expressed their solidarity and commitment towards making a secure environment for girls in their homes and outside.

''I hope that my country one day becomes a safe place for all of the girls to live and that the government and administration takes our safety as the top-priority,'' Shubhangi Manchar, a participant, said.
