Hamari Pathri

After years of being harrowed by train travel, I have come to realise that in segregation lie a lot of answers to the problems of train travel in India for women.No lechering, unwarranted sexual attention and speculation on being a lone traveler. I think that my experiences will resound in those of a lot of women who travel by trains in India for work, or higher education or just for the sake of travel, be it hours of back breaking agony in having to bear excruciating sexual confrontation, or staring, or having to put up with advances again and again…

I set-up this facebook group in order to campaign for separate women’s bogies or compartments for long distance train travel in India.Join us to help see this through!
