The discussion aimed to give some fresh new outlooks and stances with respect to ‘Gender Sensitivity In Creative Writing and Media’. Breaking through the challenges and obstacles men and women alike face in their daily lives, this session was truly an insightful discussion and amalgamation of some good insights and points of view.
Amrita Chowdhury, who is an author, entrepreneur, and innovator, stated that “Although we have popular media actively championing the causes of gender inclusivity and gender sensitivity, there’s still a long way to go, even after so many years of independence. I firmly believe that media can play an active role in shaping perspectives, mindsets, etc. of men and women, and have well-informed conversations around gender sensitivity and gender equality.”
Priti Nair, a budding entrepreneur stated that “Women must continue creating a place for themselves in this world, and must never crumble under the pressure or biases. Women need to educate themselves, become financially independent, and continue living their lives courageously.”
Manreet Sodhi Someshwar who is an author, said, “I really feel that uh we need to start questioning the status quo, start questioning why should things be the way they are… Your perceptions and thoughts around gender should not be governed by unnecessary biases.”
Adrija Bose, a dedicated Journalist, said that “Listening to stories of women from various walks of life is very important. That further nurtures within us, the habit of asking questions and seeking answers and solutions to the dilemma that women face in their daily lives due to biases.”
