“In 2015 I travelled to Pune a city in the state of Maharashtra in India. When I arrived I immediately noticed that women and girls on the street were wearing colorful headscarves. In the beginning I thought that Pune must have a big muslim community, but the closer I looked I realized that under these scarves that were covering their faces, the women wore tight jeans or were showing their bear arms. Often I would see a thick braid of hair peeking out. So must have been another reason for wearing these scarves.”
