Women empowerment is not just a word anymore, It’s the need of the hour. Despite all the advances you read of, there are thousands of women even today who need a platform to voice their stories and that’s exactly what Barkha Dutt did through a unique, participatory, one of its kind festival titled We The Women. The summit was curated by journalist Barkha Dutt. Veteran actress Rathna Pathak-Shah models Varshita Thatavarthi and Seema Hari were also part of the panel.

National sprinter Dutee Chand shared her experience being India’s first openly lesbian athlete. “My parents have still not accepted me living with another woman. I don’t have a relationship with my sister. They do not let my sister-in-law speak to me as well,” said Ms Dutee. The current national record holder for the women’s 100m spoke about her battles while pursuing her dreams of being an athlete.

“Being a star kid, attention and scrutiny are much more. But, I don’t think it is a burden. We do have the privilege of better access. But, there are many people waiting to see us fail. However, the audience and media have given me more love than I deserve. I am blind to negative vibes,” says Sara. “Because of the way I have grown up, I am not a victim. I recognise the fact that our society can have a regressive view of women. It starts from mothers preferring sons to daughters. Change must begin in the family”, Sara shared her thoughts on women empowerment.

Sai Pallavi’s Thoughts On Colorism

Actor Sai Pallavi and models like Varshita Thatavarthi and Seema Hari looked comfortable in their own skin when they were discussing, at length, colourism and racism (associated with skin colour) at the ‘We the Women’ in Bengaluru event. Sai Pallavi’s categorical refusal to endorse a fairness product, which made people sit up and take note, became the starting point of the conversation. The women shared their thoughts on various aspects of how society still treats women differently based on their skin colour, forcing many to resort to extreme measures to ‘fit into’ the ‘ideal version’ of women.

Rathna Pathak’s Take On The Ideal Sanskaar

While advocacy and fighting against discrimination lay on one side, it is an undeniable fact that change, like charity, must begin from home. “Until we address all the prejudice (we have) within, all this is going to be superficial,” said Rathna Pathak, adding that there is a pressing need to drive the message of diversity across the industries, more so because India is a hot-bed of diversity. “We are in a place where diversity is a given. But what causes this (discrimination based on skin tone)? When we point at a child and comment on her/his colour, what kind of culture are we boasting about? It is about time we examine our ‘sanskriti’,” she says.

Model Varshita Tharavarthi’s Struggles

Model Varshita Tharavarthi recalled the days she was made to sit separately in her school in New Delhi. She is one of the models for top Indian fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. “It was a time when we didn’t have Rihanna or Beyonce. We didn’t know to celebrate ourselves. Dealing with such discrimination was traumatic,” said Varshita. The world will continue to explore our insecurities. Until those insecurities exist, the prejudice will never end,” she adds.
