Horrors of Travel

The number of female solo travelers has skyrocketed, but amid Instagram-worthy escapades are tales of violence and horror, raising questions about how the world is greeting women who travel alone. Hence, Swayong and Wander Woman joined hands to raise awareness about women who travel alone.

 The founder of Wander Woman and the founders of Swayong are good friends and have travelled together. During a trip in Sunamganj, the founders of both the organizations and the other women travelers were harassed by a man. We eventually got the man to go to jail but the whole experience left us shaken. Hence, our own personal horror of travel experience motivated us to do this series.
