When SheThePeople announced its first edition of 40 Over 40 in 2019, a question was raised - why? Our response, through our words and actions, back then was the same as it is today. In a world where achievement is measured against the ticking clock, the flawed narrative of youth has often been glorified, often sidelining the remarkable women who do not fit into this restrictive category. To combat this bias, SheThePeople strives to recognise and amplify the excellence of women who defy ageist norms.

Speaking at the event, Shaili Chopra, founder of SheThePeople and Gytree expressed, "We have got to change the way we think about women. That's how the idea of SheThePeople went from being a website or social media handle to a movement. I believe that the reason SheThePeople stands out today is that we believe in sisterhood."

Chopra asserted, "We went from being an India-first platform to a global community of conversations; it's because women said, 'I'm changing the way we see sisterhood. I'm part of it, I'm sharing it, and I'm paying it forward.' That is the most important reason why when we think of ideas, events, or communities, we try to see what stereotype we can break."

The 40 Over 40 Awards is one such result of SheThePeople's spirit to shatter norms and celebrate the success and stories of women across the world.
