A GROUP of acid attack survivors are baring their scarred faces to empower other abused women. The brave ladies have opened a café in Agra, India, to encourage society to accept acid survivors – who are often shunned by their community. The café, Sheroes Hangout, is ran by Laxmi, Rupa, Chanchal, Ritu and Sonam, who do everything from cooking and cleaning to accounting and designing dresses. Inspired by a beauty parlour in Pakistan run by acid attack survivors, the cafe has become the symbol of bravery and female empowerment.
