Srishti Bakshi is so passionate about making India a safer place for women, she’s embarking on an eye-watering 3,800 km (2,361 mile) journey on foot to spread her message across the whole country. The 30-year-old quit her marketing job in Hong Kong and returned to her homeland to make the 260-day trek in the name of female empowerment.
Her journey began recently and takes her from Kanyakumari in the south of the country, to Srinagar in the north. Speaking before she set off Bakshi said, “Gender equality, political power, economic freedom and women entrepreneurship are buzz words, but women’s safety is the very basis of existence.”
