In February 2018, three friends who connected because of their love for travel were discussing their upcoming trips. Over tea, one of them pointed out how India is often seen as an unsafe destination to women. With the numerous negative press and updates, often global women travelers who are otherwise keen to visit India, end up delaying their plans.
Another interesting aspect is how women need to be allies to each other and encourage each other in a genuine way. It's not always up to the men in the world to support the women in their lives alone, but it's also equally important for women to stand up for each other.
A few cups of tea later, Women Who Wander India was born - a community for women travelers to feel safe, receive genuine updates about destinations in India and offer a sense of support to women who might find themselves in a dilemma while traveling.
