She says the riding in the Metro is safest option for women because of its surveillance cameras and women-only coaches. For her, daily life in the Indian capital is peppered with a series of difficult decisions about what is safe and unsafe, where to go, what to wear and how to act. Safety is the bottomline of every single choice that she makes from the time she steps out of her home. Shukla took part in the angry demonstrations that followed the brutal gang-rape of a young woman last month in the Indian capital. (Photo by Rama Lakshmi/The Washington Post via Getty Images)
