Be an Action Hero: Participate!  - 
 
You contribute in one or all of the three ways mentioned below:

I. Fill Up This Form (http://www.ineveraskforit.org/clothesform)
The form asks you to participate in an act of building evidence. It asks you to submit the details such as the nature of the violence, the time of the day, the place, and your age at the time you experienced sexual violence. It invites you to submit a photo of the garment, how you responded to the incident, and who caused it. 

This process of fact-building and participatory statistic-gathering is a way of rejecting blame, one Action Hero at a time. Your contribution will be placed on a world map, a photo gallery, and will be part of statistic-building process.

We propose to work with the information we collectively build, and direct it towards shifting the perceptions and attitudes towards sexual violence, and also influence policy change. 

Come on over. Let’s build it together.

II. Send Us the Actual Garment
Send in the garment you wore when you experienced sexual violence. Your garment carries the memory and the truth. Your garment carries your Action Hero story and resonates the spirit: “I Never Ask For It”.

The garments you send in will be installed on the streets of various cities worldwide as a large mobile installation from 2015 onwards.

Please send the garment to the address below:
BLANK NOISE: I NEVER ASK FOR IT
C/O Srishti School of Art Design and Technology
Near Rail and Wheel Factory.
Yelahanka, PO Box #6430
Bangalore 560 064

III. Join the Tweetathon on the 3rd and 4th of March 2014
Tweet what you wore when you experienced sexual violence with the hashtag, #INeverAskForIt. [Eg: salwarkameez #INeverAskForIt]

I Never Ask For It  - 
 
Action Hero Amalie

This is something that happened to me in Oslo the spring of 2011. It is something that I have laugh about in the preeen socialised in to thinking, but it really scared me. It happened so quickly, and it was painful.
I have always been the worst person to scare. Even when I was little, my friends would never jump out behind a corner with me. They knew from experience that I don't laugh and I don't cry either. I get angry, no I get furious. The man who hit me was in his 30s, moderate drunk, and quite tall. If he had not taken me by surprise and scared me so much, I would probably have reacted in a different way. But in that situation I started yelling at him. I asked him if he was out of his mind, that he had scared me and hurt me, and I asked him why. It seemed like my reaction surprised him. Especially that one very simple question. -Why?

When both Ida and I tell this story, we have tended to emphasise the way I reacted. Like it was something extreme over it. This scares me a little. Because I honestly think it was the right way to react, but at the same time it seems to make the story something to laugh about. Some has even said «poor guy, he messed with the wrong girl». And maybe we should say «poor guy». Not because he didn't get what he wanted, but because I think he realised that he had scared me and hurt me. I think he realised that I wasn't something he could sexualise, I was a person he had deliberately done something bad to. And understanding that, must have hurt.

The story ended with him apologising in a way that I found very sincere, and walking back the other way. I honestly think that he will never do such a thing again. If I had not reacted the way I did things might have ended differently.

I Never Ask For It -because I did not even realise he was there before it happened. How could I have asked for it.

I Never Ask For It  - 
 
Dear Action Hero,

I Never Ask For It is a campaign designed to tackle and arrest blame. It is based on the simple premise that women across the world often remember what they wore when they experienced sexual violence. It is a reflection of the environment of victim-blame that we, as girls and women, are raised in.  
 
I Never Ask For It builds testimonials of clothing. In its first phase, we’re asking you, dear Action Hero, to send a photo of the piece of clothing you wore when you experienced sexual violence, threat, or sexual intimidation. 

These garments will be placed on a world map. Your contribution is a way of participatory fact-building to say that there is no excuse for sexual violence; each garment is a witness, a testimonial, and a rejection of blame. Each garment builds resonance in saying, “I Never Ask For It.”

The second phase involves actual garment collection and a mobile installation of garments, both locally and worldwide. It will involve campaigning across forms of media, building an open, collaborative research, and participatory statistic-gathering. It will be built and led by people like you and me, the community of Action Heroes. It will involve participation from across the board.

In solidarity,
An Action Hero 
I Never Ask For It
