The Red Brigade was formed in November 2010 to fight back against a growing number of sexual attacks on women in the Madiyav area of the city of Lucknow, in Uttar Pradesh state, India. The group of young women wear distinctive red and black salwar kameez. Most have been victims of sexual assault and have resolved that they will take no more. They take direct action against their tormentors and now when a local man steps out of line, he can expect a visit from the Red Brigade and a thrashing.
