We Invite You For A Celebration Of 13 Yrs Of Women’s Web

Your favourite platform Women's Web is 13, and we're celebrating. Here is how you can be a part of our celebrations. Read to the end.

Turning 13 makes a person a teenager. Well, your favourite platform is 13 this year. A teenager. Read our story and on to the end to know how you can participate in the #13YrsOfWomensWeb celebrations.

The Women’s Web story

In 2010, our Founder CEO Aparna Vedapuri Singh wrote this welcome article announcing Women’s Web to the world. In Aparna’s words, “a significantly large proportion of the online content aimed specifically at women, was either celebrity gossip or tips on how to lose weight or apply your make-up…”

But what about the ordinary thinking Indian woman who doesn’t want to be told what to do, and wants more?

And so, Women’s Web was conceptualised, to enable women to tell their own stories, an inclusive platform that embraces all identities as seen through various dimensions of marginalisation. We have now grown into India’s only digital platform that enables women @ work through content and community, with a mission to increase participation of Indian women in the paid workforce, by connecting millions of Indian women with the resources, tools and opportunities from enterprises.

We began with just a handful of writers; and then we grew

Initially, writers came to the platform via word of mouth and some who were among the then blogging circles, and the team was tiny, just two of them – Aparna and Anne John, writer and editor extraordinaire.

In 2014, we went public, so to say. We opened the platform for crowdfunding and crowdsourcing of content – it was now that anyone who wanted to could sign up as a writer, and share their voice

Over the years, we have now grown to these numbers:

  • 20,000 authors
  • 1,00,000 subscribers
  • 20M reach

It makes me happy that we have touched so many lives. At our events, I (and some other team members) have had women come up to us and share how Women’s Web has made a real, concrete difference in their lives, in some key way. And it feels good that we have had the privilege to be there for these women, in whatever way.

Never miss real stories from India's women.
