About She Is India Organization
Founded by Richa Singh, She Is India is a platform for every Indian woman who strives to or aims to let the world see them beyond societal tags. Women are the very foundation of our human race. For thousands of years, across hundreds of cultures and amongst numerous beliefs, men have revered and worshipped women, whether in the form of Mother Nature, Durga, Kali, or Shakti in Hindu mythology or in the form of Athena, the goddess of war from Greek mythology or the mighty Amazonian Warrior Women. Cultures have woven legends around women, and poets have inked pages in their praises. Every Indian has grown up reciting khub ladi mardani who toh Jhansi waali rani thi in reverence of Rani Lakshmi Bai, the warrior queen of Jhansi.
While societies have put such powerful women on pedestals, somewhere down the line, they forgot to extend the same respect to women in their everyday lives. For centuries, the common woman has had to fight for their basic rights, be it their right to education or their right to vote or even the very basic right to stay alive. Domestic violence is another battlefield that women have been and still are fighting every day, silently, invisible.
Tapping into the theme of Women’s Empowerment against Domestic Violence, She Is India, therefore, provides Indian women with an opportunity to bring out the best of themselves by enabling them a platform to voice their opinions and break those chains of taboos, stereotypes and glass ceilings. As women’s representation matters, the platform’s motto is “She indeed is India,” and it takes bold steps to facilitate every Indian woman a chance to be the change they want to see in the world.
