From Milkman To Grocer, Desi Women Reveal How Unwanted Texts From Men Left Them Uncomfortable

With the rise of online payments, orders, and transactions in the wake of the pandemic, we are constantly exchanging numbers with people. But unfortunately, technology is being misused by some people to breach the privacy of women. For instance, women shared screenshots of flirty texts sent to them by delivery and customer care agents. But several of us are trying to tackle the problem in our own little ways, like this girl who reported an online harasser by mailing his chat screenshots to his school.
