Description
Like so many girls living in India, Selvi was forced to marry at a very young age, only to find herself in a violent and abusive situation. In an Indian society where millions of vulnerable and impoverished girls are considered worthless, Selvi refuses to accept this limiting estimation of herself. She escapes her impoverished past and violent marriage to become South India’s first female taxi driver. DRIVING WITH SELVI follows the 10-year journey of this remarkable woman who defies all societal norms and expectations with grace, remarkable strength and tremendous courage, creating an inspirational new life for herself.
