“Good girls stay at home.” Err, no. Why should boys have all the fun? No matter what some may think, women are indeed going out – whether to work, or hanging out with our friends, looking at sunsets, sitting solo in the park, going to a new city….or anything else at all that the world outdoors calls us for.

This year, to celebrate International Women’s Day, we invite you to an event in Bangalore with some bold and effervescent women who have made it their business to go out and own the world! Scientist turned cyclist Meera Velankar, Marketer-cum-runner Simran Dhaliwal, Entrepreneur & Hiker Sandhya Chandrashekharayya, Disability Rights Activist Dhanya Ravi and Fashion Blogger & Photographer Nandini Swaminathan will share with you their stories of how they go out in the world and own it.
