Sanskari Sarees: Could rape-proof clothing be real?

Jun 02, 2019 11:09 IST

Tired of hearing how women's clothes are the reasons behind rape cases? You'll love this company's proposition. Super Sanskari Sarees is the brainchild of four advertising creatives who wanted to provide a sarcastic solution to India's rape crisis. Their satirical website claims that their 'sarees are made with anti-rape technology and, according to some Indians, will make women invisible to rapists.' Auntyji may have apologized, but slut shaming and victim blaming are a persistent menace in India, the website states. All profits on the sarees are donated to a women's NGO Sayfty, that empowers women against violence, in a way that actually helps instead of policing their clothes.
