22 year old Nupur Saraswat wasn’t allowed to stay in a hotel in Hyderabad, because she was travelling alone.

“So, I am standing outside a hotel in Hyderabad which didn’t let me stay because they realized I was a “single lady” even after confirming the online booking,” she wrote in a Facebook post which quickly went viral.

“Yup, massive bag in hand, gross from the journey – just standing outside the hotel. Somehow they decided I was safer on the streets than in the hotel.

Funny huh, how patriarchy works?” she wrote.

According to the hotel’s official policy, it does not allow single women, and unmarried couples. However, booking site Goibibo allowed Saraswat’s booking to go through. Saraswat questioned why on Twitter.
