I am happy to share that an article on my SWBT (Single Woman Budget Traveler) experiences are up on the TED Fellows Medium channel. In the piece I have shared why and how did I think of traveling solo in India, what were my experiences and learning. I have learned that female solo travel in India is not as unsafe as we imagine to be, and more importantly it would continue to remain unsafe until we go out and reclaim the public spaces.
Through my article I call upon my fellow women travelers to go solo once in a while to reclaim public spaces and leave it safer for the next woman to travel. Because the act of women traveling itself is a feminist act, it gets better when they do it solo.
Please read the article here and share with your female traveler friends.
