Four out of ten women in India still have no say in their marriage, eight out of ten need a strict permission to visit a doctor, six out of seven practice some head covering activity and the average Indian household gives around 30- 40,000 in dowry. This was what I recently read in The Hindu coverage.
According to the NCAER (National Council for Applied Economic Research), the data shows that India has made progress in child marriage, with over 43% of the women over 25 reporting in 2011-2012 uttered that they were married before the age of 18. That sounds like a real change, doesn't it?
With the constant advent of Technology, the people are getting educated regarding women and their empowerment. It is not only the women who are fighting for this change but are also the men who understand the need of being a literate when it comes to letting their mothers, daughter, sisters or even wife go out of the house to work for a life.
In a regular fashion, I was going through Instagram when a picture held my eyes in awe. It was a picture regarding book writing and that is something I look forward to all the time. In astonishment, I went ahead to check out the website I saw in the bio. I was astonished to find a different world there. Women Relaxology is an online platform that helps women find fun, adventure, happiness and peace at one place.
They have one strict aim: Empowering women who want to have their own time apart from work, family, and friends.
Women Relaxology is an online platform that works for the betterment of women. Founded in January 2016 with a clear motive of making people excel and explore growth in their area of interest, this group of women try and encourage sessions for interests like Photography, Travel, Books, Food, Spirituality, Health and Entrepreneurship.
Women Relaxology has women leaders who have their independent 9 to 5 jobs. They have developed and gained expertise in these offline interest along with their jobs.
Neha Gupta, the Founder of Women Relaxology was born in Varanasi, the city of Ghats. She was always a very notorious child who used t concentrate a lot on studies and used to sing well. She completed her MBA (BE) from University of Delhi, with over 10 years of work experience in FMCG companies. She gained an expertise in Brand Marketing Strategy and Communication.
An avid traveller at heart who has visited a number of destinations used to meet a lot of new people. With her observations from traveling around the country, she worked with all kinds of women- single, married and even divorce. They all have work and life challenges with their daily happiness and she realised she needed to free these women of their mundane activities that ate their entire energy to its core. They needed that extra happiness. And hence, came the idea of Women Relaxology where a lot of sessions were conducted in order to give women the opportunity to train themselves in their field of interest.
They create events which are conducted by women who are working professionals like researchers, marketing professionals, product managers but apart from this they have avid interests just like we have hobbies that we love to pursue.
They try and encourage women to devel;op their love in the field of book writing, photography, travel, and food. The platform is mainly focussed on empowering women who want their own time apart from work, family, and friends. They cross this extra mile for nothing but a peaceful satisfaction of helping others have a broad smile on their face.
The vision is to create a huge team of over 5000 women who would love to give their best to empower women through the venture Women Relaxology.
The online platform wishes to incorporate as many women as possible with a hope of empowering them and making them realise their real power.
Women are not meant to stay in the house all day; they have to take care of the whole of the house, but that doesn't mean that they are born to be birds hid in a cage.
Women Relaxology is currently working on workshops like Book Writing, workshops on Effective Marketing, travel talks, and buying books or renting them. It works on "live your dream", and helps highly motivated women to work even harder for their goals.
