With so many Indian women bloggers writing today, which ones must you follow if you think you are a feminist? The 10 bloggers listed below.
With changing times, we see things transforming in our day to day lives. With less and less time to spare for reading, we look forward to reading online content more than ever before. And this has brought about a surge in the number of bloggers in the country today.
This is wonderful because there are numerous opportunities for folks with a passion for writing to showcase their talent. However, for readers this can sometimes become overwhelming and it becomes tough to choose the bloggers whom we want to follow.
Having been an avid reader of online content on various popular platforms since years, I have now figured out some extremely talented active woman bloggers who are not just excellent writers but are humble and fearless in their approach to writing. They never fail to voice their opinion on various issues and bring about a freshness in every piece of writing.
From personal blogging to social issues to parenting to travel, these awesome Indian women bloggers are making us proud with their powerful and unique style of writing, and it is highly recommended that you follow their work, if you are not doing so already. They may not be conventional ‘celebrities’ like Mrs. Funnybones or the popular published authors, but they have a large fan following of their own and are loved immensely by their readers across different online platforms.
So here is the list of the 10 Indian women bloggers you must follow (in alphabetical order):
Akshata Ram has been around in the blogging sphere for a while now and her passion for writing is evident in her write-ups. She has a natural flair for narrating a story and always raises pertinent questions about our society through her work. What I love the most about her is the way she balances great language and an important message in her articles and stories.
She also dabbles with micro fiction tales which are hard-hitting and depict the ironies prevalent in our society.

December 29, 2019 was a Friday no different from any other. I was running late so had no time to read the newspaper. On the way to work, I logged onto to Twitter to catch up with the news.

To think that money can buy you anything is as wrong as singling a woman out after her divorce because the world feels she got overcompensated.
