Women’s Rally to the Valley held on March 8

Western India Automobile Association (WIAA) had organised Mumbai’s first Women’s rally to the valley on the occasion of International Women’s day. 

The rally saw over 1,000 women driving around 250 cars on the streets of Mumbai. The rally commenced from Hotel Sahara Star at 8am and proceeded through the heart of the city. The participants then passed through Worli Sea Face, Peddar Road, Chowpatty, Marine Drive, Churchgate and reached Aamby Valley, which hosted the culmination ceremony. The first driver that was flagged off was a 77-year-old Rajkumari Kasliwal, and it was done by the famous Jean Todt, president, FIA.

"Since WIAA’s prime focus is creating awareness in society about road safety, we have now taken initiative to create awareness about women’s safety on roads, in public transport and in public places. With the growing attacks on women in recent times, it is important to create awareness amongst the citizens of Mumbai to build a protective society for women," said Nitin Dossa, executive chairman, WIAA.
