"Sheroes Hangout has already broken the stereotype in India."Sheroes Hangout was designed for women to live an independent, comfortable life within society. "Society was not ready to accept them as their part - they considered them as alien," said Megha. There are currently seven acid survivors working at Sheroes; Anshu, Dolly Kumari, Farah Begum, Geeta Mahor, Neetu Mahor, Ritu Saini, Rupa Saa. All of who sustain acid burns to their face and other parts of their bodies, "Now society has accepted them as their part and is also supporting them at their fullest." said Megha, "Sheroes Hangout has already broken the stereotype in India."309 cases of acid attacks were reported in 2014, a 300% rise in three years. "It's very common here, people must know about this," said Megha. After years of perpetrators getting away with this violent crime, The Law Commission of India stated from 2013 that attacking someone with acid is punishable with a maximum of 10 years in prison.Increasing its popularity worldwide, Sheroes Hangout is pleased to be attracting others overseas, "It's very important for other countries to have an understanding of burn injuries overseas, especially with acid attacks because it's a crime." Said Megha, "It can happen to anyone in any other country."
"Sheroes is a platform where they interact with the society and the world."
Now, the women are able to channel their horrific stories by serving their customers and fitting into the social norm, "Sheroes is a platform where they interact with the society and the world. I am sure that when customers leave the Sheroes, their heart would be full of memories and emotions," said Megha, "My girls are the liveliest people customers will ever meet in their lifetime."
