A woman is worried about not getting promotion despite having worked in the company for a long period of time. Job change or talking to the boss?

I love my job and what I do. It has been something I wanted to do for a very long time. However, it’s been three years since I joined this company but I am still working as a Junior staff member. I see no professional growth since I have joined. My boss refuses to give me bigger and better projects but has no issues giving the same ones to people who have lesser experience than I do.
Meanwhile, I am not a bad worker, I am diligent and I know I can finish all the tasks given to me, in fact I do them well and in time. I always get the appraisals and my colleagues and the senior members also like me. As does my boss. However, despite all this, my name is never taken into consideration for any kind of promotion.
Do you think it is time to change my job? With the experience I have I know I will get placed anywhere else.
But do I have to start from scratch again?
Have you tried having a candid conversation with your boss about this? Considering most aspects you mentioned is a positive, it does seem odd that you aren’t picked for the big projects or considered for promotions. Sure, changing jobs is always an option, but if you’ve given three years to an organisation, I’d suggest you don’t leave without voicing your concerns. Sometimes, a little nudge is all it takes and who knows, you and your boss may just find a solution to this conundrum!
Coming to your question about whether you will have to start from scratch in a new job, well, if you apply to similar organisations and job profiles, you can just take off from where you leave. However, if you intend to change your field or job profile, then maybe you might have to start afresh.
Whatever you decide to do eventually, always remember, you are the master of your own destiny. Have conviction in what you believe in and work hard, the rest will follow. I know it sounds cliched but then most tried and tested advice does.
All my best wishes to you!

"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.
Many Indian elderly are firm believers in enslaving a daughter-in-law in the name of tradition which is actually a tradition of oppression and not of religious faith.
Albeit, the popular culture has interpreted scriptures as suggesting that Kanyadaan is the supreme form of donation given to someone, the connotation that the word donation alludes to definitely objectifies the girl.
Even when the exegesis justify the act of giving away the daughter, considering it a ritual to mark the initiation of the daughter into her husband’s gotra and her becoming the part of his family tree.
There is no denial of the fact that this initiation is not required on the part of the groom thereby formally denoting the end of the filial ties with the daughter as it was popularly instructed to the bride during the Vidai ceremonies:
