2015 was a very ‘happening’ year for Women’s Web.
We grew as a community to include over 700 contributors and added many thousands of new readers.
We enabled our community members, especially in Bangalore and Mumbai to meet each other at fun and learning events.
We had interesting writing contests and blogathons and launched our Youtube channel too. Our core team grew as well to support all of these initiatives.
Best of all, besides the story the numbers tell, we also published a diversity of voices, allowing women to support each other, learn from each other and laugh with each other.
At the close of this year, I thought it is a great time to bring to you some of the most popular reads on Women’s Web this year. If you are a regular reader, you can revisit some posts that touched hearts and minds, and if you are new to Women’s Web, its a great collection to get started with.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
