Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
The author says that women have within them the power to stand against inherent patriarchal norms. They may belong to any category, they can still rise and shine one day.
‘War cry’ is a phrase or word shouted by people to gather together participants in a campaign, to give each other courage, to fight for a common cause.
Here the common cause is to fight against discrimination, patriarchy, misogyny, violence and the list goes on. But, how can we fight if we are not united? How can we claim our rights, if we as women ourselves espouse the social evils? Yes, it’s not always the men, there are women who portray women as the weaker sex. In fact, there are broadly 3 categories of women out there:
1.)The first category of women are bold and brave enough to raise their voice against any social issues which is hampering their growth in any form. They are just not ready to accept any bias based on gender, never give up on their endeavours and are here to make a change, a real change. They are like a powerful and energetic sun that not only enlightens itself, but spread its sunshine to miles, glorifying the lives of others also.
2.)The second category of women are aware of the social issues, are a part of it, but are too shy and timid to stand for themselves. They undergo years of injustice with their mouths shut, but their hearts burn with rage and crave for freedom, a real freedom. They are waiting for some miracle to happen or for someone, who would take them out from this swamp. They are like those distant stars who also want to shine their best, but are looking out for some gravitational force to pull them out from the shackles of the rule-bound society.
3.)The third category of women have taken it granted the way the society is and they believe they have to abide by the man-made rules. They don’t want to give a second thought to their mere existence in this world and keep on doing what the society dictates them to. They simply don’t want a change. They are like lost planets. They are so lost that they forget they have a life of their own and have silently embedded the social norms in their brains and hence end up playing a dormant role in the patriarchal society.
I’m here to salute those women who fight deliberately for their rights, to encourage those who are still waiting for their saviours and to change the attitude of those who still think their life is at the mercy of others. If all the three join hands together and bellow a war cry, the roar would make the earth tremor and can you imagine the reaction of the opponents?

"I chose to go out into the remote, wild, unknown, and make it home," says entrepreneur Kiranjeet Ahluwalia Chaturvedi, who owns Birdsong & Beyond.
The story of my mountain home Birdsong & Beyond started taking shape in 2009, on the internet, the way many stories do these days.
My childhood fascination for a life in the Himalayas led to an internship with a central Himalayan NGO instead of a much prized corporate assignment. But when they offered me a full-time job, I refused. I was overcome by fear and a lack of confidence.
My other longings pulled me away – the longing to fit in, to earn validation from others. By my mid-30s, with all the trappings of a middle-class urban life in place, the call of the snows couldn’t be ignored anymore. So I got to work on it with clearer intentions and a stronger sense of what I needed for myself, and why.
Chetan Bhagat had no business slut shaming Uorfi Javed or any other woman. If he wants to 'guide' young men in the 'right direction' then he should take accountability for his words.
Chetan Bhagat, one of India’s bestselling authors, thought it was an ingenious idea to slut-shame Uorfi Javed, an Indian actress and influencer, at the Sahitya Aaj Tak literature festival.
“Phone has been a great distraction for the youth, especially the boys, spending hours just watching Instagram Reels. Everyone knows who Uorfi Javed is. What will you do with her photos? Is it coming in your exams or you will go for a job interview and tell the interviewer that you know all her outfits? On one side, there is a youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed’s photos hiding in their blankets.”
Uorfi Javed responded with a video on her Instagram stories calling out Bhagat’s bluff. She shared the screenshots of his previous chat conversations with Ira Trivedi, author and yoga instructor, which came to light during the #MeToo movement.
