Exclusive: Prajakta Koli Opens Up About Her Experiences With Abuse In Public, “I Never Spoke To Anyone About It”

Travelling alone has been something each woman has been scared of, there is always a constant fear that something wrong might happen. Sadly, most women have experienced being followed groped, and touched inappropriately in public spaces at least once in their lives. In an exclusive interview with Hauterrfly’s Male Feminist, Mismatched star Prajakta Koli opened up about her experiences with public abuse and eve-teasing.

As Prajakta Koli told us in this candid interview, she had never spoken about her abuse incident until much later in life. Having been so young and unaware of what had happened, it took her some time to comprehend that she had been intentionally touched inappropriately. Prajakta added, “I was 11 years old and I was traveling in a bus one time. My stop was just around the corner. I kept feeling this thing rub against my back. When I got down I noticed a bulge in his pants, but I never understood what that was. I never spoke to anyone about it. After a lot of years when I spoke about it with my sister, I realised that it was an erection I felt against my back.”
