Rather than relying on someone else to do something about their safety , women found it necessary to take matters into their own hands.

". We don't want to feel like that. We want to be able to go out wherever we want, at any time of day or night, and feel safe. So you have to learn how to defend yourself."

" Women in India's capital are taking self-defense classes, snapping up pepper sprays, booking cabs with female drivers ....."

"authorities have initiated several measures to instill confidence, but many women say they cannot rely on India's often gender-insensitive and under-resourced police force to ensure their security."

"Women have to learn to defend themselves," she said in between learning how to kick her partner in the crotch at a self-defense class. "We don't want to have to wear a burkha in order to go out and feel safe."
