A rare fashion trend has emerged in Pune, a city in Western India. Wherever you look, you see women wearing colorful headscarves that cover their faces and identities. After looking a bit closer one will however realize that these scarves are not worn for religious reasons. What started as a means of protection against pollution and smog has now become a tool for staying anonymous and shielding oneself from everyday harassment in public spaces.
