I make it a point to read the news online everyday, even though it's almost always depressing. The endless war, the credit crisis, the way our leaders insist on kissing the asses of the misogynistic freaks in Sauda Arabia, all of it makes me sad and angry. But every once in a great while I come across some articles that lift my spirits and give me just a little hope that everything will turn out fine.
This story made me smile. Click here to read about India's pink clad vigilante women.
You've got to love an article that starts out They wear pink saris and go after corrupt officials and boorish men with sticks and axes.
Basically these chicks, known as the "gulabi gang" (pink gang) are taking back the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, brandishing sticks and axes and going after, among others "men who have abandoned or beaten their wives."
And in Bombay, women have started driving pink cabs, solely for the use of other women who don't want to ride in a car with a strange man. The cab company is even training the new drivers in karate to make them feel safer. Read about it here.
I don't know about you, but the thought of pink clad, karate-chopping, ninja chicks standing up for themselves in India (not such a great place to be a woman) really fills me with glee. You go, girls!
The Pink Ladies are the hippest clique of chicks at Rydell High.
