After Malala Yousafzai, here’s another woman who has been added to Newsweek’s list of the 25 Young Women to Watch. 18-year-old Shweta Katti has freed herself from the clutches of the vicious red-light world and has gone to study Psychology at the liberal arts Bard college.

After her early experiences of abuse and harassment, Katti claims that she cannot believe that her childhood dream would actually come true. Her mother, a factory worker has been her guide and the local charity Kranti also helped her in her endeavour. The group, which aims at empowering girls from Mumabi’s red light areas, helped Katti improve her English language skills.

Katti gives the inspiration to other women who seem to be trapped in their struggling lives, where it is difficult enough to manage to survive, let alone get a degree. If she can do it, so can they.
