We spent a week in Imphal, Manipur with Championship Boxer Mary Kom as she set about realising India’s first all female self defence club (FFC).
In a time when the marginalisation and safety of women in India is at the forefront of international debate, Mary hopes to inspire gender equality through health, confidence and emerging technologies.
