@kumudam_com - Apologise for your story insulting women and be responsible!

This petition had 21,931 supporters

Women who wear leggings are immoral! That’s what Kumudam, a popular Tamil Magazine, thinks. 

Kumudam has also printed several photos of women wearing leggings without their consent! If the women are wearing Kurtas over their leggings, the magazine has chosen to print sleazy photographs where the wind is blowing up their kurta. 

This is sickening behaviour! Sign our petition and make Kumudam magazine apologise for this tasteless story. 

The magazine has also printed a poem by an anonymous male author - who says men can’t help but ogle women, so it is the responsibility of women to dress ‘decently’. 

Kumudam thinks it can get away with moral policing and publicly shaming women! We need to show them that if they publish such stories, they too will be held publicly accountable. 

Kumudam’s editor and managing director have refused to comment on this story. They’re refusing to acknowledge that their magazine has done anything wrong.  

Sadly, this is not the first time that Kumudam has demeaned women. They have run many such sensational stories where they degrade women. Kumudam has to be held accountable! 

Sign my petition and make Kumudam apologise and promise to publish responsible stories. 

I am a female journalist and Kumudam’s history of objectifying and judging women sickens me. If enough people sign this petition, we can show Kumudam that their readers and their audience will not tolerate such stories

If we make Kumudam apologise, other media outlets will think twice before running ‘stories’ such as this. Sign my petition and make Kumudam apologise and promise to engage in responsible journalism.
