Welcome to Women’s Web

Posted: April 19, 2010

Hello readers – Welcome to Women’s Web!

I’m Aparna V. Singh, the Founder-Editor of Women’s Web and I can’t tell you how excited I am at finally getting this website off the ground. It’s been in the offing for months, but then, there’s always so much to do between idea and implementation.

Here we are though, and I thought it would be nice to kick off things with a note on how Women’s Web has come about.

Almost a year ago, I was browsing online rather aimlessly when it hit me, that a significantly large proportion of the online content aimed specifically at women, was either celebrity gossip or tips on how to lose weight or apply your make-up or … well, you get the picture.

Now don’t get me wrong – I’m not above the occasional celeb-talk and as for beauty buzz, well, to each her own, though I do believe the excessive importance attached to women’s looks does no one any good (either women or men).

On the other hand, women in the workplace are no longer a novelty. It’s a different story that women have always been working – out in the fields, tending to children and the elderly, and today – they are also paid workers. Yet, if you were to look at many publications for women, it would almost seem as if this section of the population doesn’t exist.

The reasoning behind Women’s Web was simple : to address this gap and to present an interesting and thoughtful read for the many, many Indian women who I think would love to go beyond gossip and frills. While a good part of our content will revolve around the workplace and career development, there is also plenty for other kinds of readers: those whose ‘official’ working days are behind them, those who are on a break and would like to stay updated, those who’ve never gone in for paid employment but don’t consider themselves confined to the home.

It’s early days of course, and I’m assuming our course will adapt and change as we grow with our readers. Do stay with us as we start this exciting journey, and if you have any suggestions, let us know – I’d love to hear them.
