Are the Startups Treating the Men and Women Equally?


Emma Watson speaking on Gender Equality and Feminism

In my previous post, I left you on the note that the modern startup culture can establish the equality between men and women. However, how can it be surely said that this is going to be a successful idea? Let’s look at a fashion house that is about to be launched. Yes, there are plenty of female students studying at the fashion institutes in India and that gives them the power to dream. They aspire to become an entrepreneur and start their own fashion line. These female entrepreneurs overcome are mentally prepared to accept and ignore the criticisms that talk about them growing wings. Thus, in the male-dominated society, when they have to recruit, subconsciously, they end up recruiting a greater number of female candidates. Now you would ask me how the balance is maintained, right? Well, if there are 80 men and 20 men working at a construction company, won’t the equality be established if 80 women and 20 men run the fashion house? Think about it.


Shreya Dutta is the Founder & Creative Head of StarWords India and the author of “Dance in the Rain”. She is an engineer by qualification and a writer by passion. Years ago, when little girls were jotting down their bucket list, Shreya was lost in her dreamland in which she was immortal. Dutta had started off writing at an early age because she believed that writing not only helped her to voice her opinion but also led her closer to immortality. With every write-up that gets published, Shreya believes that she gets embedded in the pages of history to inspire the youngsters who dream likewise. Writing is not just her passion; it is her way of taking the road less travelled.
