A hopeful story about a community of women — now 20,000 strong — who are banding together to fight for women’s rights and justice by confronting domestic violence and corruption. From Amana Fontanella-Khan’s story at The Daily Beast:

India’s Pink Gangthe largest women’s vigilante group in the world, shames abusive husbands and corrupt politicians by going door-to-door clad in electric pink saris and wielding sticks called laathis—the same sticks used by local cops when patrolling their beat. Recently, they’ve gained political clout by winning seats in the panchayat elections—the equivalent of American municipality elections.”
