Mahila Thana

The 16th of December 2012, the safety issues of the Indian women and gender violence were brought to the fore by the news of the gang rape and death of a young student in New Delhi, India. Three years later, in Gurugram, a city in the neighborhood of Delhi, a police station that deals only with women crimes opened.  The project Mahila Thana, which is All Women Police Station in Hindi, documents its daily life inside its white walls.
