'Kolkata Police joins #MeToo campaign, says 'we want you to be very angry'
Ever since the #MeToo hashtag campaign went viral,  the internet has exploded with the gruesome sexual harassment experiences of men and women. And now, Kolkata Police has joined the #metoo social media campaign by urging people to not just be strong but to also be very, very angry about the sexual physical abuses they constantly face in almost every sphere of life.

The police department has shared a post on Facebook, saying they were “perturbed” by the number of women who shared their stories of sexual abuse. The post soon went viral and people came forward and thanked the Kolkata Police for positively approaching the ongoing #MeToo hashtag campaign.

Read the facebook post here:

Yesterday and today, we found Facebook and Twitter full of the metoo hashtag, which exposes the shocking number of women who have been subject to sexual harassment.

We at Kolkata Police have been perturbed by the number of women who have shared #metoo. And we would also like to reiterate our pledge and commitment by saying that we hear every single one of you.

We are here to take your complaints every time you want to report a case of sexual harassment. So walk into our police stations whenever you want to report sexual harassment, and our officers are there to hear your experiences with patience and kindness and take your complaints. We urge you to be strong, we want you to be very, very angry about the leering, jeering, threats, verbal and physical abuses, we are asking you to be not afraid and to report to the police every time.

We also feel it important to talk to boys about the need to stop sexual harassment, and for this, we have recently launched a project, Dear Boys, in schools. We have visited ten schools of Kolkata, and the second part of Dear Boys will start mid-November.
