This March Let's Celebrate Women
iDiva.com, India’s No.1 lifestyle portal for women, is celebrating Women's Month this March with the amazing Kalki Koechlin as celebrity guest editor. Women in India, find themselves in an extremely vulnerable spot with the various injustices against them.
With the recent ban on the film that focuses on the rape case in Delhi,it has become even more crucial to voice opinions for the India women.
That’s why iDiva.com, along with the influential Kalki Koechlin,is focused on women empowerment and feminism. Having actively campaigned for women's rights in the past, Kalki talks about what it's like to be a woman in India and why feminism is not a dirty word. She also talks about sexual harassment and why being a single, divorced woman in a sexually-repressed society like India is extremely difficult.
On her association with iDiva, she says, "As iDiva's guest editor this month, I urge you to be yourself. To have the courage to say what you want and mean what you say. And while you change, be sure to sensitise people around you to it as well. Because we all make up a society and if we want a world where women can feel safe at 9 in the night, where they are not raped by their own husbands or reduced to fear by their own fathers, then we need to change ourselves. We need to make the world feminist friendly."
