editor’s letter

When did the Pill come into existence? Who was the first Indian woman to reach Mount Everest? When were Indian women given equal rights to property? Why is 1994 considered a watershed year for the Indian woman’s beauty conquests? What happened when the human computer Shakuntala Devi got her answer wrong in a BBC interview? How did a rape survivor get SC to set up the watertight Vishaka guidelines against sexual harassment? The answers lie with us because even if you Google them, the backstory sits in Femina archives. As Femina, we have lived every milestone, each moment with the Indian woman. It’s been 60 years of having her back, six decades of staying relevant, 21,900 days of staying neck to perfumed neck with her in her unstoppable journey. Femina and…

we hear you!

The September 9, 2019 issue was packed with information. I love the magazine as it brings true stories to the forefront. The article, True Grit (Reality, Opener), about Deepika Mhatre’s foray into the world of stand-up comedy was remarkable. I want to applaud her ex-employers who encouraged her throughout. Such success stories move you. A big thanks to Femina. Manishaa Shiva Mohanty, Amritsar The September 9, 2019 issue gave me several insights on how to create a green environment at home and in office (The Big Story).

watershed moments for the indian woman

1959 Arati Saha FIRST INDIAN WOMAN TO SWIM ACROSS THE ENGLISH CHANNEL There’s no territory on Earth which can’t be conquered by women. Arati Saha proved this in 1959 when she became not only the first and the fastest Indian woman, but also the first Asian woman to swim across the English Channel. She received the Padma Shri in 1960 and became the first Indian sportswoman to win the fourth highest civilian honour. Born on 24 September 1940 in Bengal, Saha’s journey of standing out began in 1952, when she—as a 12-year-old—represented India in the Summer Olympics as the youngest member of the Indian contingent. Being a water baby since she was four, Saha participated in and won several recognitions at the state and national level swimming competitions. Inspired by Brojen Das—the…

EQUALITY EDUCATE, EMPOWER, ELEVATE Accesiblity to education still remains elusive for girls at large Even before the class VII teacher could pose the question, an enthusiastic Sarita shot up her hand. Before she could have the chance to answer, she was summoned to the principal’s office and asked to go home. Her mother had taken ill and she had to step in to cook and finish chores. Yes, in India, primary and secondary education for girls is not only compulsory, but also free, but in the 72 years after Independence, the country has yet to better literacy rates for girls. The patriarchal system is one of the primary reasons for girls being pulled out of school, especially in low income groups. The families believe that they eventually have to get married, so it’s better…
