Anti-Rape Technique

In 2010, in an effort to help girls protect themselves from sexual assaults, a non-government organisation ‘No Means No Worldwide’ launched the self-defense technique.

Rape is a global issue affecting many women around the world. According to UN on ending violence against women and girls, ‘every year, millions of women and girls worldwide suffer violence; domestic violence, rape, female genital mutilation/cutting, dowry-related killing, trafficking, sexual violence in conflict-related situations or other manifestations of abuse.
Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, Africa, is one among the many with high rape cases. According to Crime Scene Investigation Nairobi, rape is the most highly under reported crime in Kenya, with only one out of the twenty, who report a rape case, while one in six seek medical assistance. In a day, at least 300 rape cases are reported.
In 2010, in an effort to help girls protect themselves from sexual assaults, a non-government organisation ‘No Means No Worldwide’ launched the self-defense technique. The aim of the program was to train young girls and women on self-defense techniques as a tool to protect them from such violence, and to curb rape issues that are affecting the women in Nairobi.
The six weeks program attracted many young girls when launched. The girls were taught on the techniques not only to protect themselves from the violence but to also protect them from the system. Since its implementation, according to Journal of Adolescent Health, the program has seen shocking reduction by 63 percent in the incidence of rape for girls when compared to a control group – from 24 percent to 9.2 percent.
Over time, the rape incidents began to drop with more girls reporting rape cases, and also speaking out about their traumatic experiences. With positive outcomes seen from the program, two programs were designed; Your Moment of Truth and ‘Sources of Strength’ for the boys. The two were designed to primarily educate young boys that rape is wrong and to protect girls from rape or any other forms of violence they may encounter.
Today, the programs continues to see increasing number of female engaged. The positive results will see the program be required in all secondary schools in Nairobi by 2017.

Women Use Self Defense as Anti-Rape Technique  

Trained that 'No Means No,' young men act to stop rape Jun 17, 2015

Gang-rape on Nirbhaya in Delhi shook Bengaluru resident Ranjini Ganesh so much that, she made a firm resolve to introduce self-defence techniques to Bengalureans, especially women and girls. 

Nearly four years after the gory incident on a moving bus in Delhi, the Nirbhaya Self-Defence Academy set up by Ranjini has trained hundreds of women and girls to deal with adverse situations on their own. 

One such trainee, Sunitha, a social service worker was waiting for a bus at Magadi Road one night, when a group of men surrounded her and started to make lewd comments.  The self-defence techniques that she had learnt at one of the workshops conducted by Ranjini came to her rescue. “I felt strong and confident after learning the techniques and adapting them,” Sunitha, a resident of Magadi Road told DH.

Similarly, seven-year-old Meena (name changed) adopted self-defence techniques and gave a blow to a miscreant who tried to catch her from behind when she was playing with other kids in her locality.  

Ranjini, who started the academy, a couple of months after the Nirbhaya incident in December 2012 aims to empower women and children through the training classes. 

She teaches mind power techniques and meditation and holds counselling sessions for the participants. Her husband Ganesh Govindan, a trained martial arts trainer teaches self-defence techniques, a mix of kungfu, yoga, karate, judo

The classes that last for one to two hours are conducted every Saturday and Sunday at Ranjini's house on Cambridge Road in Ulsoor. “Presently, we are holding regular classes for 30 students out of which six to eight are young girls. Men are also part of the batch," Ranjini said. The couple also visit educational institutions regularly to conduct self-defence workshops. 

Shockingly, it is not just women who complain of harassment and abuse. Men, specially youngsters, too have narrated their ordeal of physical abuse, molestation among others,” she stated.
