When I was a young girl of six, I would make numerous sets of tiny footprints on the pristine beaches of Mangalore. I would spend hours mesmerized by the waves, the method in their madness, and the mood swings of the sun. Most fascinating of all, I would spend time collecting shells while my cousins splashed about in the water. It didn’t matter how much time it took, I had to have the best shells- of different shapes, sizes, and colours. Carefully, I’d create an assortment of shells, take them home, and give it to my loved ones as ‘gifts’.
Today, at 21, I hope to do the same for you, dear readers. As Content Manager, I aim to gift you the most insightful and useful resources at Women’s Web. What I hope to use in this pursuit is an undying love for the written word, an inextinguishable curiosity about women’s issues, and a cheeky knack for editing.
I found Aparna when I was fresh out of college, with a bachelor’s degree in Economics, and an enthusiasm to turn idealism to reality. Having studied Politics and History, I’m aware that the fight for equality remains a steep hill to climb. I hope to contribute to this uphill climb in all the ways I can.
At this point in time, I think it’s important for women to pool in their insights, knowledge, and resources to build strong communities. Communities, whether online or offline, that allow for breaking down stereotypes, taboos, and limitations, while encouraging growth and solidarity. I saw Women’s Web as a platform to do my bit in creating such a community, and here I am!
After all, like Margaret Mead summed it up perfectly, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
There are two aspects to this case, which are equally disturbing, and which together make me question where we are heading as a society.
When the father of an 18 year old finds his son looking at photographs of a lady in a swimsuit, he can do many things. What this parent allegedly did was to dash off a letter to the University which states:
