Women's Web I Stood Up Contest Logo
Good Indian girls don’t stand up for themselves. Or do they? Tell us your story, participate in the ‘I Stood Up’ Women’s Web Blogathon!
Our society insists that we women ought to behave like a “good Indian girl”, to adjust and to keep our opinions to ourselves – or better still, not have any opinions of our own at all. But many of us don’t agree.
We decide that enough is enough and we find the courage and conviction from somewhere deep within us to stand up – against injustice, against harassment, against discrimination, against oppression, against inequality, against prejudice.
Have you had such a moment when you stood up? Presenting the ‘I Stood Up’ blogathon! Write about a situation in your life when you stood up – for yourself or for another.
