Over the years, your support has made Women’s Web the leading resource for women in India. Now, it is our turn to ask, how can we make this even more useful for you? Please take our short 5 minute questionnaire – your feedback is important to us!
Start a conversation about the freedoms you are proud of, and the ones that are yet to be obtained. Join the #FreedomIs campaign!
Walking your dog. Sitting with a cuppa, as it pours outside. Reading a book on the Metro, undisturbed. Going for a late-night run. Taking a crowded bus without the fear of being groped. Asking for contraception without the judgement. Negotiating for a salary you deserve. Choosing to stay single. Choosing to be a stay-at-home mom. Being allowed to love the person you want, regardless of their gender. Finding a job that values your skills more than your missing leg.
Independence goes hand-in-hand with empowerment, and comes in various shapes and sizes. Which one fits you the best?
To celebrate the gift of independence, and to add to the conversation on what Freedoms we need, desire, and should work towards – we bring to you the #FreedomIs campaign.
Tell us – When do you feel truly free? OR When will you feel truly free?
In the month of August, Women’s Web will try its best to bring you useful reads centred around your main concerns – our writers will write about your messages, and amplify your voices.
Share your ideas, tell us where freedom is still a far-fetched idea, tell us the freedoms you’re proud about, start the conversation.
Click a selfie with your message!
Send your selfie to [email protected] with ‘#FreedomIs’ as the subject. Send us a short note about you/your message if you would like that included on your pic.
This campaign will be going on all August, but do start sending in your selfies soon, so that we can include them in our Facebook album, and also open them up to all Women’s Web writers who may pick your message to write about.
Make your voice count for your own freedoms, as well as those of others!

Relatives kissing children's penises made me wonder how this is leaving boys vulnerable to potential abuse under the garb of affection.
As we witness in all Indian family gatherings – whether a wedding, a birthday, or a summer vacation – nostalgia soaks us all.
However, one such gathering exposed me to a horrific practice that, though common in many houses worldwide, is very problematic.
It all started with my horror at hearing one of the supposedly funny anecdotes about my cousin’s birth.
These women investors are figuring out exactly what they want, breaking stereotypes and being their best selves in the midst!
While there is a generalised view of investors being men in suits, and it is true that the investing space holds too few women still, there is hope! In Indian market, women are emerging as investors in all capacities and at all scales, whether as part of large VC firms, boutique investment firms, private equity ventures or as angel investors.
Being an investor is certainly not a man’s domain alone. Several women investors have inspired people to opt for this emerging career. These women break the glass ceiling and defy stereotypes as they rise above the bar.
While the venture capitalist and investment industry on the whole are becoming more cognisant of funding more women entrepreneurs and closing the gender gap, when it comes to startups, true equality is still a distant dream. So, the rise of women investors should certainly bring more hope to women entrepreneurs looking for funding.
