Women’s safety is still a very debatable topic in our country. Through statistics and figures, Rusha has tried to establish the situation of women, especially on the safety factor, while they travel in India. She not only just stated the problem but also wrote some suggestive measures to tackle them. For example, in her articles she has explained how women could contribute to the GDP of the country if the unpaid work they do is valued and compensated in the same process as paid work. One of her articles also focussed on how a woman can get equal opportunities as her counterparts. Rusha’s opinion and thoughts in the article conveyed the same.
