I met the volunteers of Lucknow based NGO 'Red Brigade' in Ramgarh, Rajasthan earlier this year. The women were young, strong and confident. They were there to impart self-defense training at an all-girls’ school.
What started as a hesitation in the school girls about being aggressive or bold, soon converted into a joy at having an all women space where they could shout, display aggression and let themselves be. In the process, they learnt about the mindset of offenders, how they needed to overcome their own apprehensions around men and some techniques that would be handy in dealing with the situation.
I photographed these amazing women for the current issue of @natgeo #womenofimpact
