There isn’t much, they say, that cannot be handled with a strong cup of tea at hand. A good cup of tea is a great way to de-stress, especially if that cuppa can be shared with good friends. For us women, that would, of course, be our women friends. Friends that are often the backbone for our strength.
Women have always had to be strong – strong enough for more than just themselves. For the very survival of the human race depended upon them. But being a woman is not just about the propagation of humankind.
It is about the limitations put on her in a society which would rather she not step out of home, and if having a career, have one that takes the least away from her assigned role at home.
It is about standing up to everyone and their neighbour having an opinion about her life and her choices.
It is about becoming your own person despite everything – our wings often being clipped by society, and yet we continue to fly. Looking at an ordinary woman, you wouldn’t really know her strength.
Or paraphrasing a quote supposedly made by Eleanor Roosevelt, “A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong she is until she’s in hot water.”
So send us your stories of strength – your story, a story of someone you know, a story about strength of a woman.
6 winners will be chosen from among the entries, which will be published on Women’s Web.
All winners will get gift hampers from Goodwyn Tea. For tea bags are the next big thing!
The cue is the quote above – “A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong she is until she’s in hot water.”

It should reach us on [email protected] by Sunday the 20th of March 2016, by 3.00 p.m.

Actor Sonali Kulkarni recently faced the ire of netizens for her insensitive remark during an interview, stating that a lot of women in India are ‘lazy’. They just want a husband who has a good job, a house, and who gets regular increments. She went on to further say that women don’t have the courage to say what they will do once they get married to their respective spouses.

Every one has entrepreneurial ideas, don’t we? Mine was to open an organization that hosted events wherein kids from orphanages and elderlies from old-age homes were brought together.
It was unique, at least that is what my professor told me. But the amount of money as capital made it a distant dream. Sigh! But are there any ventures which need little money? Can we start our entrepreneurial journey with just ₹10000?
