In a unique experiment Delhi-based illustrator and graphic designer Kruttika Susarla has done a makeover of Gagan Thakur’s three-wheeler with powerful images of women leaders and organisations fighting for women’s rights from all over India. The auto is being used as a remarkable symbol of women’s empowerment in a city whose public spaces and transport are considered to be notoriously unsafe and unfriendly to women.

The five women leaders which have been featured includes Manipuri activist Irom Sharmila, Adivasi leader Soni Sori, 19th-century social reformer and educationist Savitribai Phule, Dalit autorickshaw driver Chitralekha, and rape survivor Bhanwari Devi. The autorickshaw makeover is a collaborative effort of Delhi-based Manas Foundation and Mumbai-based Taxi Fabric.
