Pink Ladies

The women of the Indian subcontinent are reclaiming the color pink by using it for general badassery instead of frilly underthings. A coterie of female vigilantes 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." In Bombay, women are driving pink cabs which are solely for the use of other women. One pink cab company even offers its employees English language classes, driving instruction and karate training.
