Emotional intelligence for women

In the latter half of the 20th century pretty much the time I was growing up, all that mattered was your IQ. A high score in school-college-university was a mark of success, your life was set so-to-speak and that in turn meant that your parents had done a good job. The 21st century has seen(…)

Women At Work ShethePeople

A few years ago, I wanted to create a leadership program for women. I discussed this with my friend Aparna and we both were excited about the idea but unsure of the response from the world. We were sure that we would be able to provide an enjoyable and meaningful experience for the women, we(…)

Yashodhara Lal Image to SheThePeople

Over the last three years, I find myself reading a LOT more non-fiction than fiction. On writing. On meditation. On time management. As a consequence of which, I’m late to the party in terms of reading the big, famous fiction titles – such as Gone Girl, which recently made its way to my home. Have(…)

Breastfeeding in public

The incident of a woman being shamed publicly for breastfeeding her infant on a train has left us shell-shocked. 32-year-old Swapna Kulkarni Ajgaonkar and her husband, Amir, were onboard the Deccan Queen on Sunday when like any other mother of an infant, she started breastfeeding her hungry son. Seeing this “scandalous” scene, fellow co-passengers started a grotesque protest.(…)

Sanitary Napkins

As a young Indian woman I am acutely aware of the social stigma attached to menstruation in our country. Your periods must not be talked about, your sanitary napkins must be strategically hidden, and you should definitely not put your hand in the pickle jar. But for me, my period is a time when I(…)

The recent case of IIT Delhi implementing a regressive rule on its female students of Himadri hostel — asking them “to wear covered decent western or Indian attire” — is not an isolated one. Indian academic institutions have been imposing such draconian measures for a while now. What IIT Delhi did shows how expecting equal(…)

Starting today, Reel Story Of Gender with Ishmeet Nagpal will analyse how films and programs are communicating gender. Celluloid remains such a powerful medium of positioning thoughts and discourse in the society and yet we don’t leverage it for the appropriate messaging. Hard hitting and honest, that’s Ishmeet’s column for you. From the graceful lips(…)

Sonu Nigam by India.com

The sound of the azaan has all of India debating why noise pollution and religion make for such a touchy subject. Across social media, questions are being raised on whether one religious community should be allowed to have loud prayers. Is that about tolerance or about noise pollution? What’s noisy – just the morning prayer or(…)

Yoga In India

More than ever before, women today play many different roles in their lives. They are professionals, mothers, spouses, friends, caregivers of elderly relatives and volunteers in communities. Maintaining a balance between family and work is tough enough; to find time for yourself on top of that is nearly impossible. Spending all their time juggling your(…)

While watching the last ever episode of ‘Girls’ this weekend, I realised why Lena Dunham literally speaks my heart out. She is a class apart, and so different from most of the rich and the famous. She is the modern writer/director/actor who isn’t afraid to speak the truth and portray reality on TV. No, not(…)

One wonders if this is for real? Just a few days ago a CBSE text book for students defined the ideal bust-waist size for women. Now another book is objectifying entrepreneurs, talking of ‘good height and complexion.’  Seriously, what’s wrong with us? In Rajasthan’s government schools, books are redefining how to be desirable as entrepreneur. It says(…)

We all talk a lot about choice and one of the biggest choices we make is whether to have kids and when to have kids. These days many women delay having children because they are focussed on their careers, worried about the effects childbirth will have on their body, or simply because its not a(…)

Safecity organised a photo exhibition and panel discussion during Global Anti- Street Harassment Week to deconstruct the crucial linkages between the freedom to travel and roam, and gendered violence in our session titled: ‘Reclaiming public spaces: Challenges in local transport” in Mumbai. We focussed on(…)

sexual harassment at work copy

Women at the workplace have experienced harassment at some point or the other — either the unwanted touch or discrimination at large. While earlier, women rarely spoke out against such harassment, thanks to digital media, they are now aggressively coming forward to make their voice heard. It is all out in the open now. Starting(…)
