In this episode of our podcast, we are talking about something that we have all engaged with but are often stopping ourselves from talking about it. Porn as we know it is possibly the most consumed form of media out there. However, the vulgarisation of porn happens with this whole treatment of the form only for a titillating objectifying purpose. Most porn that is readily available is also made from an extreme white-cis-het male gaze, where female pleasure seems to be completely sidelined. However with the advent of ethical porn and feminist creators that landscape is slowly changing. Joining ..read more

Throughout the course of the episode this season, we have been talking about how gender is stereotyped in different work industries. When we speak about work, we generally think of someone working for someone else. Now, if you think about an entrepreneur it sounds very exciting because you are your own boss. But that also comes with a lot more responsibilities. You are responsible for generating revenue, maintaining your staff, ensuring there is a good working environment, and so on. Into this mix, if you put a woman at the core of this business a platform that speaks about gender, it becomes ..read more

When we imagine a woman at work, what do we think? Or rather, what are we taught to think of? There are certain professions that our society assigns to women - workspaces that reflect values like nurture and caregiving. Imagining dynamic workspaces with women who ace the ladder through their skills is still slightly alien to us. Through the course of this season of our podcast, we have been steadily debunking such workplace gender stereotypes. In this episode, we are going to speak to someone who works in the field of science. Joining our hosts Shriya and Sukanya in this episode is resear ..read more

We have discussed how gender reflects in various fields of work, in the previous episodes of this podcast. We all have different kinds of work environments. In some workplaces, we can afford to keep our persona, views, and opinions private. In other professions, that is not an option. Journalism is one such area of work where there is a lot of public gaze on the journalist, especially with the advent of digital and multimedia journalism. One often has to put their face, voice, opinions, and political views out there. They are scrutinised, correlated, juxtaposed, and many  kinds of consequ ..read more

The development sector is among the many fields where critical investigations in social engineering, policy pushing, social audit, and accountability initiatives, happen, among other projects. Often, with women who work in this sector, there is a stereotypical representation attached - the NGO woman - geeky, always serious, somewhat rigid - and these are all the images we have seen in popular culture and narratives that are largely male and far from the truth. So what is it to be a woman working in the development sector in India? Joining our hosts Shriya and Sukanya in this episode is human r ..read more

When we talk about the role of gender in art or the relationship between gender and art, we cannot discount the fact that gender presentation and representation in art is not just in the hand of the artist but an outcome of the sociocultural process that defines sexual and social identity. With this in mind, we also need to talk about what art/artists include and what it excludes. How hierarchies and marginalisations and disparity can also showcase itself in art. And how art itself can become a way to push back on the same.  Joining our hosts Shriya and Sukanya in this episode is visual a ..read more

The whole idea of how a sportsperson should be is constructed from a very masculine perspective, where even men are required to perform hypermasculinity to be taken seriously. Sports is also a career choice that a lot more individuals are pursuing today, compared to older times. We are also witnessing the entry of numerous female and queer athletes into various sports, where they thrive and shine. In this background, it is quite intriguing to understand what it means to be a woman in sports. Does she also have to embrace the hypermasculine construct of how a sportsperson should seem? Does she ..read more

All of us like to laugh, don't we? Humour keeps us going and adds that layer of lightness to our lives. When we look at comedy as a genre, there are various forms of it. There are political jokes, satire, sarcasm, there is sketch comedy, improvisation, imitation, and so on and so forth. But very often, we notice that jokes are gendered, in the sense that most of them are made at the expense of women or gender minorities, and contain sexist, racist, casteist underpinnings. Comedy is an arena where dominant narratives can be re-negotiated, spoofed, questioned, and critiqued. But do we do that? I ..read more
