Feminist Futures India (FFI), a project by CHOICE for Youth and Sexuality in collaboration with Serendip Guardians carried out a campaign titled “body festival” on Valentine’s Day in Kohima. The campaign focuses on body literacy, consent and mental health.
Speaking to Nagaland Post, Sekulu Nyekha, youth champion of Feminist Futures India (FFI) said that consent was about communication and was required in every activity.
Nyekha said that the reason these topics were highlighted on February 14 was because young people in general made uninformed decisions and ended up normalising abuse.
On this day, the organisers carried out a campaign on body literacy, consent and mental health after having witnessed how consent was overlooked and neglected.
