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

Professional Women Cab Drivers Rise Against All Odds

Since last year, India has witnessed a rapid growth in the number of female cab drivers thanks to the leading cab companies who have been appointing women for the job. Even though the women in India are taking up the steering wheels as cab drivers, some feel that amidst the rare spontaneous thumbs-up gestures, friction and disrespect from their male counterparts still exist. Nevertheless, becoming a taxi company employee, it provides them with good income and more life experiences. Women like Gulesh and Satyawati are independent and single handedly managing their homes.

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.
