Taking to the cations they wrote, “A saint, a sinner, an artist, an admirer, a mother bearing it all, a woman who bares it all, a complete boss and a colossal mess—women are breaking into new roles every day and shattering the image of the hour-glass bodied eye candies we were once used to watching.” The era of streaming services has pushed out the formula in which women were used only as pieces of the puzzle to drive the narrative of the male lead. Today, women are no longer just a part of the story, but are the story.”
“While we’ve come a long way, there is still so much room to grow. Diverse stories about women from across classes and identities must be told louder and more frequently. But with the democratization of content creation and the rise in the number of platforms, it’s safe to say, the future of story-telling looks so much brighter! Here’s to celebrating every story that deserves to be told. May they continue to find screens to play at and fans to play for, because irrespective of the platform—Har Kahaani Hai Zaruri. Her Kahaani Hai Zaruri,” they added.
International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year.
