Women of Indian Politics
A story-telling platform that shares the inspiring stories of India’s women politicians, in their own words. They talk about the ups and downs in their journeys, the best moments and the regrets, the beautiful and the challenges. Many women leaders including former governors, union ministers, MPs, and MLAs have opened up and shared their stories. It aims to bring more stories from the rural as well as urban India.
Men as Allies
It is conceptualised to sensitize men in politics, who currently are 85.7% of Indian politics, so that they become ambassadors of increasing women-leadership. We feel it is imperative to engage men, as gender cannot be a one-sided conversation, and they are the major perpetrators of sexism within the system.
