Ananta Centre launched a series of Dialogues on Women and Gender Issues – “The Woman Speaks” – a platform developed by women, for women and dedicated to women.
The forum provides a safe space for open discussions which bring forth the true conflict within, focusing on both the inconsistencies in how women are viewed and her own battle to define her identity outside of society’s norms. Her challenges, her experiences and her own affirmations of worth, power, and vulnerability in a period of underrepresentation and prejudice and her struggle to transcend the image thrust upon her to struggle for wholeness and find her voice.
The panel had an eclectic mix of speakers who shared their lived experience and discussed the changing role of women in influencing the course of social change in society and moving from the dream, outward.
