Episode 9: Ek aam din ek ladki ka bahar jate hue
"Whenever I step out of my home, I feel all eyes are on me, eyeing my body which makes me feel insecure and vulnerable".
Host Anjali shares her insecurities and discomfort she goes through on a daily basis while travelling in public spaces.
Azad Lab is one of 6 shows produced as part of the Free/Dem Community Podcasts, the online avatar of the Freedem WhatsApp Radio run by community members of Tajpur Pahadi and other urban slums in and around Delhi. The shows are built around ideas of gender equity, love, freedom of expression, human rights and justice. Through the podcasts, community members discuss as well as share their lived realities. They are produced under Ideosync's FREE/DEM initiative, which provides marginalized communities - especially women and migrants - a platform to amplify their narratives and stories using audio and video.
