From Equals to Equals, UrbanClap Celebrates Men’s Day.
On the occasion of Men’s day, UrbanClap launches a video supporting the cause of equality. A firm supporter of equality for all, UrbanClap is known for its stance on social issues like education, support for LGBT and women empowerment. The platform being a level playing field for all its partners irrespective of gender, UrbanClap strongly felt the need to establish the fact that no gender is superior to the other, but equal.
The film portrays four women from different walks of life, in off beat professions, that are most often not thought of as a conventional choice of career. It recreates anecdotes from their lives to accentuate the need for equality in every walk of life. Stories of Shanti Devi – a truck mechanic, Vankadarath Saritha – the capital’s first bus driver, Mehrun Nisha – a bouncer in a pub in Delhi and Teena Chaudhary– a fitness trainer with UrbanClap. The video ends with a wish from every woman who doesn’t need a man, but wants them – as equals.
Commenting on the video and the initiative, Abhiraj Bhal, cofounder, UrbanClap said, “We have always supported various causes from the very beginning. The work force at UrbanClap and our partners are given equal opportunities irrespective of their gender. We believe that everyone has the right to choose a profession and excel in it. Our partners and employees are welcomed into the company solely on the basis of their merit. Our past efforts and associations have also promoted this line of thought. This is just a small gesture towards furthering this cause and we hope that everyday celebrates the same. This video in no way feels the need to undermine one gender to champion the other. It promotes equality and the need to coexist.“
The film is an attempt to make people realize that conforming to sexism does not strengthen a gender, equality does.
