Kohima, Dec. 10 (EMN): The students of Kohima College threw a surprise to the citizens of Kohima town on Monday with a flash mob, and it was done for a cause – to spread awareness on protection of women from domestic violence and to prevent harassment of women in the society.
The students numbering around twenty danced to some catchy R&B and hip hop tunes at Phoolbari, old MLA hostel junction, while some of their compatriots handed out leaflets and phamplets, which contain women’s rights and laws against violators, to the curious onlookers.
“Women are often subjected to violence in the hands of their husbands and other family members in our society, which causes both mental and physical injury.
Sometime, this harassment and violence compel these unfortunate women to even take their own lives,” said Kevisetuo, a student of Kohima College.
The flash mob was an initiative of the Kohima college students and Nagaland State Legal Service Authority.
