Sampat Pal Devi is the fearless leader of the Gulabi Gang: an all-women vigilante group in north India. Draped in her signature magenta sari, Devi started the Gulabi (pink) gang to take a stand against the domestic violence sweeping her state. Now, she’s a warrior who stops at nothing. As well as amassing a list of criminal charges, she leads a group of 20,000 women and is a staunch advocate for women’s rights everywhere.
