Two weeks back, some of their members saw some sexist graffiti on the walls of Ambedkar University campus.

This reads: "Save boys and men from feminism" and "Who's yo daddy?"

Since the perpetrators were unknown and the students had only recently reclaimed the campus walls for art, they couldn't file a complaint with the college authorities.

This one reads: "Remember the men".

Some members of Pinjra Tod, a Delhi-based feminist organisation saw this and decided to fix the graffiti a little bit.

When the vandals wrote "Gender Studies is time waste", the women not only fixed the text to disagree but also pasted their timetable to encourage people to attend the classes. But, those were ripped off and replaced with graffiti asking the students to "get married" or "get laid".

Here they corrected "Save boys and men from feminism" to "Save women from the likes of you."

They also cheekily claimed the tag of being shameless, young and free with a smiley at the end here.

This reads: &quot;Besharam, aazaad, aawara auratein&quot;.Translation: &quot;Shameless, free, wandering women&quot;.
