500 years ago, women were disadvantaged in the freedoms of movement, speech, and lifestyle choices. 500 years later, has there been any change?
- Women are forbidden from driving a car in Saudi Arabia. They can ride bicycles, but must wear a full-body abaya (veiled cloak), be accompanied by a male relative, and are bounded within certain areas.
- Road safety rules do not apply to women in India.
- 62% of all students enrolled in the universities of Pakistan are female but the majority of them do not possess the opportunity to work. They face difficulties on their daily commutes because it is considered taboo for women to be out of their homes, alone.
Are these restrictions not ridiculous, in a modern world where the internet unites us as one and grants us the freedom and knowledge to explore the world? Is it not time to rise up and take action against prejudice and ignorance, and support freedom of movement for women?
Let us do it right now! Join us and fight for freedom!
The Freedom Traveller (TFT) is an award-winning initiative working towards the realization of women’s right to mobility. TFT connects and empowers female travellers, especially from the countries where freedom of movement for women is restricted, with a platform where women of all nationalities and beliefs can actively network, share knowledge and resources, and map their experiences of travel.
