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.”

For International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women, let's look at how we 'accept' mothers who avenge violence against their kids, but not wives who fight back.
The silver screen is replete with depictions of male rage and men engaging in violence, but when women engage in violence, even when it is reactionary violence, it doesn’t sit right with us. We allow mothers (as portrayed in Sridevi’s Mom and Raveena Tandon’s Maatr) to avenge their daughters and resort to violence when all else fails, but when the abuser is an intimate partner, the rules appear to be different.
Depictions of female rage on screen garner mixed reactions. We root for protagonists and films we agree with like Mom or Maatr, but there are also films like Darlings which drew flak for its depictions of reactionary violence.
This begs the question, which women on screen are allowed to fight back and why do we root for some of these characters while refusing to see where others come from?
This Generation To Generation Violence towards A Daughter-in-law Needs To Stop!
It is ironic how women in the same home do not think twice before harassing a woman who left her parents and family behind to live with her husband.
“My daughter needs a husband who listens to her. He should leave his family to stay with her after marriage. He should be well-off and not let her do chores.”
“I also need an obedient daughter-in-law, who will be an unpaid servant and a punching bag who shouldn’t have a life of her own.”
