Indian Women Turning to Female Only Transport to Stay Safe

Last edited 19th June 2016

Madhu Kushwah is calmly negotiating her way through Delhi’s chaotic traffic, ignoring the relentless honking of horns and apparently unfazed by the cars and auto rickshaws that keep veering dangerously across the road in front of her. Ms Kushwah seems to be one of the few drivers to have read, and heeded, the street signs urging motorists to “Follow Lane Discipline.” The 27-year-old is dressed in her work uniform, a blue shalwar kameez with pink trimming, and driving a white sedan that’s seen better days. As a female taxi driver, Ms Kushwah is a very rare breed in India. She is an employee of Sakha cabs – the pink and purple sticker on the driver’s door says: “Cabs for Women By Women”.
