Manju Warrier once again arrived at Thiruvananthapuram for an inauguration. This time it was not a jewellery store that was getting inaugurated, but Manju arrived to flag off the She Taxi! Manju flag off the She Taxi yesterday, 19 November.
She Taxi is an all-women taxi service has been launched by the Kerala government to ensure safe travel for women at all hours. These 24/7 She Taxi services are driven and owned by women. Soon Thiruvananthapuram will see the pink and white taxi driven all around the city by the women.
She Taxi, from now, will ensure safer travelling to women. Travelling late nights now become an easy way rather than a nightmare to most of the women working long distances. She Taxis are monitored through a GPS system and their movement can be tracked by the passenger's guardians or friends. So far five women have come forward to run the service initiated by Gender Park under the Department of Social Justice.
The women drivers have also been given self defence training, and Thiruvananthapuram's women have welcomed the initiative. The introduction of such a service has given relief to many.
Manju Warrier has been appointed as the brand ambassador for the She Taxi. Click on the slideshow to know more...
