Founder of SheThePeople, Shaili Chopra shared that the partnership with UN Women is for raising advocacy efforts and strengthening the voices of women across India. She added, “This partnership is very important for us to build a sisterhood in order to ensure that women don’t get left behind. While opportunities are important, what is equally important is the environment and how we make it an enabling and empowering one for women to be able to access those opportunities. Whether this is societal behaviour, the mindset, patriarchy at home, lack of peer groups and circles all of these can be mended to create a flourishing and safe space for women to build themselves up for success.”
