Bollywood Says is a poster series by Stree, a youth-led initiative started by students of IIT Delhi for gender sensitization, that aims to show the inherent sexism and a deep patriarchal shade in Bollywood dialogues.
They are a bunch of college students who conduct workshops and discussions in various schools and colleges of Delhi with an aim to sensitize those students about the small things in our daily lives that lead to gender-based crimes and violence. By helping the educated youth realize the root cause of sexual harassment, they hope to see a much more egalitarian society in the coming generations.
