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

Women Bouncers In Pune Set An Example

While women have to worry about their security every time they step out, they need to pay special attention to their safety when they are going out clubbing or even to crowded places. Pune's Deepa Parab started a group of women bouncers in 2016, who are not only taught how to protect other women but are trained to look after themselves too. With over 540 women trained so far, the Ranragini Women Bouncers' Group has become an institution that is leading the way in ensuring women's safety in a metropolitan city like Pune, among others.

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.
