On a post on Facebook, we asked our readers what they would like to invent to make life easier for women.
So naturally, the floodgates opened because, let’s face it, women tackle a lot of things which are unnecessarily tough about their lives. Be it something biological like menstruation or the same old social norms which don’t let us live in peace.
Here are some of the really interesting answers!
This person kept it real because we really need this kind of a thing in our lives.
“Some device which pressed would make the woman disappear in times of danger .. The device which could sense her emotion , her adrenalin rush , her environment, her safety . That moment she could protect herself by vanishing ( Hope this would save children , woman and animals too need these days )” – Swathi Joshnaa Sathish
Another practical demand which could actually make things very, very easier.
“In a rural context: MOBILITY! A scooter, car, bike, cycle, whatever. So an app or a charm that provides more women with driving skills.” – Tante Mina
If the conditions keep going the same way as they are, Sanghati has a very valid point here, to be honest.
“A separate planet….” – Sanghati Bakshi Kazi
This might just be the very first response that comes to every woman’s mind. It’s sad that we have to wish for something like this because apparently all of this is a woman’s work only. * rolls eyes *
“A robot which can take care of house keeping completely – house cleaning, mopping, dusting, vessels cleaning & putting them back, washing, drying, ironing & arranging clothes; maintaining bathrooms & water closets;setting up dewan , sofa, show case… Finally maintaining the kitchen- never mind if it has to be another robot” – Meera Murali
A lot of people had a lot of thoughts about the elephant in the room: MONTHLY PERIODS!
“Decomposable sanitary napkins or some sort of thing to make hygiene during menstruation available without compromising the environment.” – Pragnya Sandy
“If I must reply, I’ll say it’s a med. that’ll stop monthly periods without side effects.” – Neeta Banerjee
“Seasonal mating- like other animals no need to go thru menstrual periods all through the year but only when one wants offspring blah blah” – Prathibha Ryali
Lastly, we got some sobering replies which require us to reflect on them to see what the world can actually do to make life easier for women.
“something which helps our opposite gender realise that we women should be treated the same way as they themselves want to be treated by others.” – Madhumita Das Sengupta
“To make women’s life easier we do not need any new thing to be invented. Just need to change mindset of people ….and things would be easier for everyone…men or women. People do not need luxury, or many things to have easier life, they need support, understanding and encouragement in day to day life to have easier happy life. So I wouldn’t invent anything……” – Bina Rabadia

When someone accuses you of "too much feminism", what they are really saying is, "I am uncomfortable with you challenging the status quo and disrupting my privilege".
Time and again, there is one phrase that keeps coming up in the social media discourse on feminism. Any guesses?
Ah, no prizes for guessing the infamous “itni bhi feminist” or “too much feminism” phrase, a classic eye-roller for me, and I am sure for many more of my tribe, in the realm of gender equality discussions.
Pray tell me, how can an ideology, a movement be too ‘much’? It’s not salt or the seasoning of your soup where you can go, “Oops, too much salt, only one spoon was required”. Either you stand for what feminism stands for, or you don’t.
We often hear of relationships doomed by distances, of love wearing off when physical proximity ceases, and of growing apart. Most of my life I grew up witnessing the opposite of this. Thus, my belief in growing together whether distant or near stands tall.
When I think back today, I owe a lot of my value system to being a part of army life. This is the love of steel-hearted women who breathe life and passion into the soldiers of the armed forces.
A book by Swapnil Pandey, The Force Behind the Forces, is apt here. The love of these gritty women powers the men to confidently step out and face the most hostile situations. I feel privileged to share a personally witnessed account of this undying love and faith.
