Know-It-All In 30 Seconds
Ladies. Have you ever feared walking on the roads at night? Even if you’re accompanied by your girlfriends? We always hear our elders tell us to not walk alone at night or ask us if we are accompanied by boys. If you are against this thought process and want this to change, you’ve got to join these women who take on the roads at midnight!
What’s It All About?
Women Walk At Night is an all women’s group in Delhi that take the roads at midnight and just walk. The best part about the walk is that nothing much happens on the walks… and yet, a lot happens. You get to meet different women, hear, see and smell the cityscape change over the two hours.
They talk about safety, they share experiences, they encounter cops and auto walas and curious gazes and dropping jaws. That sounds so empowering to us! It’s such a simple thing. To walk the roads at night. To understand that women face difficulty in such basic functions is a shame to the society as a whole.
These women have taken the matter in their own hands, or may I say they have taken the matter in their own feet!
If you have been struggling to feel empowered, or even safe, we say walk. Walk with these women as they take over the city one neighbourhood at a time!
Their next walk is happening soon. But before we skip to the details, there are a few things you need to remember about these walks. They’re not athletic or for fitness purposes. They’re leisure walks and ONLY for women. All women are encouraged to carry things that make them feel safe – a pepper spray, a stick, a torch. And above all, all women are asked to wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
Here are the details to the next walk. Ready?
