Today, where men are working so hard to be an entrepreneur so that they don’t have to be dominated by others but to be their own bosses. How can girls wait to sail the same boat? They too are equipped with skills, confidence and desperation at par with boys.
Where a decade ago girls were asked to be behind the doors and take care of the domestic chores. Now, most of the girls are taught to be independent so that they don’t have to suffer at any point in time. But as we all know it’s not just the permission from the parents which is the only obstacle but there are other factors also such as community pressure, communication and more than that their own security.
Therefore, we now would talk about some brave ladies, who fought with all the obstacles they faced in their paths and succeeded to be influential women entrepreneurs. And mind you, these are all Indian Entrepreneurs.
From pickles to be not to be touched to temples not to be entered. Menstruation is the term we call to restrict females from many things every month. This is where we get people like Aditi Gupta, who empathises and stands against it. She started by having Hindi comics on menstruation, which was also supported by her now husband, Tuhin Patel. From here, Aditi and Tuhin’s venture has scaled to a whole website called Menstrupedia.com. Along with a comic book section to simplify menstruation for the reader, it has guides on hygiene, health and ways to be active during periods, plus – answers to frequently asked queries.
