Amrita Ghosh and Bhakti Shringarpure ask what happens when women decide to travel a world that seems explicitly designed for men. Even with privileged passports and upscale arrangements, can a woman ever truly feel safe traveling by herself? And what compromises do women have to make if they choose to be journalists or travel writers? Guest Suchitra Vijayan traveled 9000 miles across India’s vast border for her book Midnight’s Border: A People’s History of India. She shares the many challenges she overcame, the precautions she took, the amazing people she met along the way and ponders whether it was all worth it.
