Roshan Dilli - A Campaign To Light Up Public Spaces In Delhi And Make The City Safer For Women

Delhi: The Crime Capital Of India

Uber-NDTV Roshan Dilli campaign brings you a special show on the challenges faced by women who live and work in the capital. From young women belonging to a resettlement colony who created a rap song to express their angst and anger at having their freedom curtailed, to young professionals, who despite belonging to a different strata of society, often feel a sense of insecurity. While Delhi has developed over the years, it still remains the crime capital of the country, with the highest number of reported rapes. More steps need to be taken to make it safer for women, from ensuring well lit streets, to better transport facility, policing as well as a push for societal change. This is essential so that all genders can enjoy the city and all it has to offer with the same freedom.

About The Campaign

NDTV in partnership with UBER is launching a sustained campaign 'Roshan Dilli'  to try and raise safety standards in India's capital, New Delhi.

Our focus is to try and improve lighting in public spaces in the city. Lighting is a key factor in shaping women's perceptions of safety

The initiative will provide a platform for all stakeholders to discuss our goal of improving safety standards, to start a conversation about safety of women in the country

It will also highlight various interventions and solutions that help to make women safe and put the spotlight on what more can be done.

The campaign will accentuate the need for Safety to be a shared responsibility

The need for gender sensitization and how law enforcement and civil society through checks and education can try and make women safer

We hope you will join us and help make New Delhi a safer city for women.
