I Never Ask For It Campaign


I Never Ask For It is a campaign initiated by Blank Noise, a collective fighting against street harassment initiated by Jasmeen Patheja in August 2003. They describe themselves as “a volunteer/ Action Hero led community arts collective committed to tackling gender based violence and building safe spaces”.

This campaign builds testimonials of sexual violences with clothing : victims send a picture of the garment they were wearing when they felt sexually assaulted. For Blank Noise “each garment is a witness, a testimonial, and a rejection of blame. Each garment builds resonance in saying, ‘I Never Ask For It.’”.
