’I Respect Women’ badges for tour guides

Faced with negative publicity over incidents of crime against foreign tourists, government will encourage people involved in tourism sector to wear badges with slogan “I Respect Women” as an image makeover exercise.

The aim, Tourism Ministry officials say, is to show that majority of people here do not support crime against women so that it inspires confidence among foreign visitors.

“People involved in tourism sector including tour operators, guides, taxi and auto drivers, hoteliers and other stakeholders will be asked to wear “I Respect Women” badges,” said a senior Tourism Ministry official.

Besides Hindi and English, the metal badges will be in nine international languages, like Chinese, French, Korean, Japanese, Arabic and Russian.
