relatable tweets for indian women, women listen each other, women empower women

Below the age of 30, we’re all collectively rolling our eyes and struggling to deal with pressures to marry, to follow social convention, to make chai, to be the ‘good girls’ society wants us to be. Thanks to the internet, we have a place to share our woes with each other.
