“There’s power in allowing yourself to be known and heard, in owning your unique story, in using your authentic voice.” – Michelle Obama
With this objective in mind, Women Who Win gave an opportunity to women to celebrate their unique stories through our campaign ‘WWW WONDER WOMANIYA 2021’.
This campaign was conceptualized to support women in realizing their dreams. We aimed to empower women to embrace their journey of identity, independence, setbacks and achievements.
We invited applications from women in different parts of the country to tell us the stories of their lives. Overcoming all doubts and gathering all the confidence, 15 women registered for this initiative and shared their inspiring stories with us. The Jury then had to select the 10 most unique stories to be published and crowned.
What better day to conclude the campaign than Women’s Day! On 8th March 2021, we organized an online event to declare the result and to take all the stories to the world. The participants (Nitaa Bajaria, Deepali Gokhe, Geetanjali Gupta, Chanchal Gaur, Meena Baid, Rachna Narang, Pooja Bawa, Abha Mehta, Sunita Krishna, Neelima Thakur, Nipa Bhavik Thaker, Rumpa Biswas, Avani Bhayani, Anupama Sharma) shared their lives in front of an audience and inspired them. The event was graced with the presence of our esteemed jury members, some special guests of honour and all our sponsors who very graciously agreed to sponsor amazing goodies for our participants. The winners were: Chanchal Gaur, Pooja Bawa, Abha Mehta and Anupama Sharma from Delhi, Rachna Narang, Sunita Krishna, Nipa Thaker and Avani Bhayani from Mumbai, Rumpa Biswas from Pune and Neelima Thakur from Pondicherry. Deepali Gocke won the ‘Best Travel Story” prize whereas Meena Baid bagged a special recognition.
After the Event
Well, it isn’t over yet. All the participants trusted us enough to share their stories. So, we decided to facilitate them in a special way through a crowning ceremony to be held in Delhi, Mumbai and Pune. All the participants will receive certificates and special goodie bags. Also, the winners’ stories are being published in WOMENSHINE MAGAZINE.
All the women out there are really ‘Wonder Womaniyas’. The three months that went into the planning, organizing and execution of this special campaign have been extremely inspiring and memorable. Thank you for coming with us on this journey.
Celebrating and acknowledging women for just a day or a month is not enough. We’ll keep on coming up with such campaigns to empower and connect women.
