This year we planned a conversation around women and dignity. We invited Ms Mallika Sarabhai, an artist of international fame with multifaceted expertise and experience in theatre, dance, politics, and other fields. The event was hosted at the Ahmedabad University bookstore on the 4th of March, 2020, from 3 to 4 pm. The event was organised in collaboration with the youth wing of the Women’s Development Cell, Women Empowerment Forum.
Dr Mallika Sarabhai and Professor Chirag Trivedi discussed the idea of dignity that surrounds women and their work. Dr Sarabhai discussed her ideas of empowerment and talked about how the change starts within. She believes that we need to re-engineer ourselves to move past the ideas that have been conditioned in each one of us by society. The event ended on a perfect note through a live performance by WEF Founder Hailey Desai and Music Club member Radhe Joisar, creating a wave of awakening. Everyone in the audience was on the edge of their seats, the entire time. Dr Sarabhai is bold, fierce, powerful, and everything that a woman needs to be.
