The exhibition organizer, Lisbeth Cane, spoke about the exhibition saying, the victim's clothes are simple which can never be the reason for any men to get fascinated. These are neither revealing nor appealing and hence clothes can never be the reason behind rape or assault. It’s the thought that needs to be changed.
