Show Notes

In this weeks episode I spoke with an amazing woman who was born and raised in India. Bhavna moved abroad when she finished univeristy, and has been living outside of India for more than 15 years now.

From short skirts and PDA to eve teasing and the fear of being attacked with acid: life as a girl in India can be terrifying from beginning to end.

She tells us what it's like growing up in India in a society where there are strict beauty standards, and you're surrounded by a culture where women are perpetually unsafe. And she shares how different she has found life to be while living abroad. 

The cultural and gender shock she experienced as a young woman making her way through the world.
