5 Indian Women Who Broke Stereotypes In 2017 - Social Talkies

The word Women is not just a group of letters. It stands for our society’s stereotypes associated with the female human being.

A woman is someone who wears a makeup, one who is supposed to serve food and take care of babies, one who does not have enough mind to acquire technical skills and much more.

“Not a woman’s job” is what the society tells, “sports are not meant for girls” “a woman can’t” are just some of the sentences women across the world hear every time they try and rise above stereotypes and achieve something new.

Submissive is what she is supposed to be!! These stereotypes get attached to women’s existence by birth and for the rest of life they carry the burden of it. But thankfully there are many women for whom sky is not the limit and who decided not to pay heed to such talks and moved on, breaking barriers and reaching new heights in their quest to fulfill their own personal dreams and ambitions.

From challenging patriarchal mindsets to fighting disability in pursuit of their passions, these 5 Indian women have broken glass ceilings and come out on top as only true fighters can!!
