@PMOIndia: Promise 'Achche Din' for women and address the issue of women's safety in your Independence Day speech

Each morning when I leave for college, I feel scared of being stalked, sexually assaulted, burned from an acid attack or getting murdered. I am a 23 year old girl living in India and I am deeply worried.
I am not alone. Every woman in India has faced some form of sexual harassment. Last month, two girls were raped and hanged from a tree in Badaun, UP. Just a few days ago a 6 year old girl was raped in her school in Bangalore. This needs to end!
We can no longer sit quietly and wait for the next rape to make news headlines. I, along with Youth Ki Awaaz started this petition asking PM Modi to promise 'Achche Din' for women and address women's safety in the Independence Day speech.
The entire world watches the Independence day speech of the Prime Minister from red fort. If the PM talks about ‘Achche Din’ for women and his plan for it, it will send a very strong message that India has put women’s safety as a top priority.
Even the number of tourists coming to India has declined because our country has been tagged as “unsafe for women.” Only our new Prime Minister can change this image by making women’s security a national concern.
Join me in asking PM Modi to promise 'Achche Din' for women and address the issue of women's safety in the Independence Day speech.
Our Prime Minister came to power with a message of hope. Let’s make sure that he promises ‘achche din’ for everyone, including women. Sign my petition and share it with your friends.
