Contest on Women Breaking Gender Stereotypes - last date 1st June 2017
Women’s economic empowerment in the changing world of work implies not only empowering female entrepreneurs and business owners, but also recognizing women’s unpaid care, domestic work and the overwhelming majority of women in the informal economy.This year, NITI Aayog, along with the UN in India and MyGov, launches the campaign to award inspiring women from across India through entries in two categories:
1. Short video and photo contest on Women Breaking Gender Stereotypes: This can be a homemade video shot on the mobile phone. Both photos and videos are to be accompanied with a short caption (not over 50 words) encapsulating the story of the woman.
2. Written entries of women in the workforce, across sectors, irrespective of their educational qualifications. We encourage stories of women working in non-traditional occupations and women who are working to empower other women, their neighborhoods/society in anyway. (Stories should not exceed 500 words.)
Participants are invited to upload entries directly on the MyGov platform.
The last date for submission of entries has been extended till 1st June, 2017.
