When we say the #WomaNation , we speak about the exhilarating tales, the tales of Durga the Hindu Warrior Goddess who fought against the demonic forces threatening peace, we speak about the tales of Summaya- the first Islamic martyr who was sliced into two and as she died she said “la ilaha illallah” even her tongue had a backbone that the patriarchy couldn’t break.
When a woman says she is a feminist, she means her “feminism or womanism” comes from the religion she belongs to, her feminism comes from the education that empowers her, whether it be “The Durga Feminism”, or “The Summaya Feminism.”
When we speak about women empowerment, we speak about making the country stronger, because as they say, “If you educate a man, you educate an individual. But if you educate a woman, you educate a nation.”
Well well, with this cliche yet the most alluring truthful line we would like to say that this blog is not to protest against men, or demean them in any ways. It is all about what womanism stands for! There are many questions raised on being a feminist and following the path of feminism, but feminism is nothing but, “the belief in social, economic, and political equality of the sexes.” This is what women demand as feminists, “EQUALITY.”
Feminism or Equality, to take independent decisions and to choose a career of her choice, equality to empower herself, equality to stand strong despite her caste, creed, body structure, and marital status.
Thus, the #WomeNation stand for the equal respect that women deserve, “kyunki aaj ki nariyan daya nai izzat kamane aayi hai.”
INIFD-Deccan celebrates Women’s Day by taking a small step towards empowering women by helping them choose a career that they’re passionate about. Every year we face questions whether our daughters will be able to cope-up with the glamour and stressful life of the design industry, will our daughters survive the design industry, etc etc.
We would like to say of course they will, chance deke toh dekho! So…..
Don’t underestimate or be overprotective towards your daughters just because she is a girl, it is time that you stand-up with her and give her all the freedom to explore, let her have her own journey and let her own her success. Make sure to stand strong besides them and help them become the next inspirations in the design industry just like Coco Channel, Zaha Hadid, Twinkle Khanna, Anita Dongre, and likewise. It is time to create a strong #WomeNation which is independent of all the societal norms that stereotype their talent.
This International Women’s Day, with the #WomeNation , fulfill your #DesignDreams with INIFD-Deccan, Pune, where a strong educational base is created for future inspirations. We understand that for a strong educational base good institute matters, and access to finance is the only conflict for getting admitted into it, especially for girls who want to pursue a career of their likings and passion.
Thus, this Women’s Day avail Rs. 8,000 off on your admission fees at INIFD-Deccan, for Interior and Fashion Design (Degree and Certification Courses).
We would like to end our blog by quoting Michelle Obama, “No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens.”
