VITHIKA YADAV grew up in a traditional Hindu family in Rajasthan, northern India. From a very young age she was taught not to look a man in the eye and to never go out on the street alone. But all these rules did not protect her from what happens to the vast majority of Indian girls and women on a daily basis: sexual harassment and assault, or "Eve teasing" as Indian men call it. But Vithika fought back.
In 2013, Vithika won the Award for "Excellence & Innovation in Sexuality Innovation" for her sexual education platform "Love Matters", which has millions of users and followers every day.
