'My Perfect Country': India

Our local reporter explores the corridors of universities to hear the young women who are putting themselves in charge of their own future

Published: Thursday 3 March, 2016



The fifth episode of 'My Perfect Country' (BBC World Service, 3 March 2016) examines India’s pioneering work on sanitation for women. With stories from the native workers who are inventing simple systems alongside active campaigning, she follows the changing attitudes towards women’s rights and their wellbeing. Our local reporter explores the corridors of universities to hear the young women who are putting themselves in charge of their own future – and whether those in charge of inspiring change nationwide are taking note.

Fi Glover, entrepreneur Martha Lane Fox and Professor Henrietta Moore determine whether global nations should take on both the practice and the inspiration from India into their own communities.
