Internalized, hostile sexism, mansplaining or societal misogyny - women fight many battles while just casually existing and doing what they do best, i.e, being a boss. We spoke to some women about the real change that they want to see in the world and here's what they had to say.
Just like Beyonce, boss lady at Beyond Designs and Café We, Neha Gupta, wants every woman to know her worth- "Parallel to education, women should be encouraged to go out and work outside the home. This will make them economically independent and buy them all the other benefits and security."
Philanthropist Nupur Tewari, the healing touch behind Heal Indya and Heal Tokyo, says, "I want women to be confident. Confidence does not come with holding a glass of wine or fancy clothes, it comes with self-realisation. So, realise your own powers."
If you want to smash patriarchy, you have supporter in Meenu Agarwal, the Principal Designer at MADS Creations- " Women need more say in leading their life. Educate and skill yourself enough to be authoritative and find a better life. Sharpen any skill that you may have and use them to make a mark."
The change begins at home and so, designer Sunaina Khera wants you to start with a small change. Try it- " The most important change that needs to be seen today is an equal opportunity for women. Starting right from their own homes where they aren't pressurized by their parents to get married to their workplaces where they aren't treated any less than their male counterparts."
Are you a strong, independent woman who needs no man? Designer Akanksha Chowdhry of Nayirah feels your power - " I would really like Indian women to start believing in themselves strongly and firmly. They are capable of achieving whatever they wish for."
Women support women and interior designer Khushi Todi of Cane Boutique knows that - "I would want each woman to empower herself by realizing her true potential and lighting up her life and rising and thus inspiring other women to do the same."
Battling patriarchy, bearing children and then getting back to business- women certainly are not the weaker sex and designer duo Saaksha & Kinni want you to know that - "We would want to see Indian women across the world being taken more seriously. Be it in the workplace, as actors, scientists etc, it is time Indian women were celebrated."
The force behind Fizzy Goblet, designer Laksheeta Govil wants you to walk the talk. She says, "Embrace your own power and know you are capable of doing it all."
Filmfare Award winner, digital influencer and actor, Mithila Palkar's one of the young women paving the way for a feminist India. "The change that we are all hoping for is already in the making,"she says.
