#SirimavoBandaranaike was born #onthisdayinhistory April 17 1916. She became the world’s first elected #femaleprimeminister in 1960. she ended up serving three terms: 1960–1965, 1970–1977 and 1994–2000. Although she was the first elected female leader in the world, this didn’t translate to female representation in Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 parliament. Born into an aristocratic family, in her youth she did work to increase living standards for women in rural villages. As a wife to the prime minister she did champion political rights and education for women, and family planning. Once in office, after the death of her husband, she was instrumental in keeping Sri Lanka neutral during the Cold War as part of the non-aligned movement (NAM), a geo-political bloc of ‘neutral’ nations from the global South. She has also been accused of complicity in fanning the tensions between the Tamil and Sinhala. #womenmakinghistory #womencreatingchange #herstory #womenshistory #shepersisted #womeninpolitics #southasianwomen #srilankangirl #srilankanhistory #womenwholead #girlpower #feministart #watercolorillustration #trailblazingwomen #yesshecan #bosslady

“In our culture taking big risks when it comes to your education or career is usually met with a dramatic “ain ippidi sairingal !?” or a straight up “No. You can’t do that”. Let’s just say there aren’t very many Krishna Jenner’s screaming “you’re doing amazing sweetie” from the pews of our dream jobs.” . . New blog post is (finally) up! Tell your friends!

I’ve been faced with a lot of situations that have brought up facing my fears & revisiting my values. While thinking about life, the word self sufficient came up. . Learning to satisfy your own needs is important - financially, mentally, emotionally and physically. . You must know how to fill your own cup before giving to others. Although, thinking you can always do this without external assistance isn’t healthy or wise. I always preach that you can always learn and ask for help from others. . But when does it then become dependency on others in some cases? Whether that be friends, family or loved ones. . Could it be because we’re afraid to face what we know needs work in our lives and in our thoughts. . What are your thoughts? . . . . #selfcare #selflove #authenticself #coachingforwomen #reinventyourself #womenwhocoach #lifecoachingforwomen #strongwomen #girlpower #theeverygirl #reinventioncoach #transformationcoach #southasianwomen #mindfulnessmoments #reinventyourlife #livingaligned
Happiness is a mindset. My happiness recently has come from me adding a little bit of wisdom to my everyday life. This wisdom comes in many forms. It could be in terms of a podcast, a book, dance, meditation, prayer, etc. Basically, something that allows me to do some learning about myself and the world around me, not just passively experiencing something like a TV show. This learning really helps to center me and helps me have a more positive and motivated mindset. If you try this, let me know how it works, would love to know! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #dancer #artist #creative #model #modelshoot #clothingbrand #collab #collaboration #southasian #bollywood #livetinted #southasianwomen #southasianwomanartist #southasianfashion #womeninpower #womeninleadership #womeninpower #discoverunder10k #bloggerstyle #bloggertofollow #like #follow #artistofollow

100th post! This epitomizes why I began this account in the first place - to encourage people to see the good in themselves and in all that is around them. Everyone grows up with certain ideas of how their life should turn out to be and many times in South Asian culture you are raised to think you should have achieved certain things by a certain time and if you do not then you have failed. NOT TRUE. Whoever you are, wherever you are read this, let go of all that and be happy! ----- #Repost @positiveenergy_plus with @get_repost ・・・ Type YES if you agree. Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is. #positiveenergyplus ----- #southasian #southasianwomen #empoweringsouthasianwomen #ESAW #southasianwomenempowerment #femaleempowerment #empowerment #strong #strength #strongwomen #liftup #positivevibes #positivity #mothers #daughters #aunts #nieces #sisters #girlpower

“Social media has made too many of you comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the mouth for” OK that’s very common post on everyones screen. Well my mantra is “LET WHOEVER THINK WHATEVER” never let anyone bully you into silence. Let them lie, make up assumptions and stories about you, it speaks volume of their own character not yours! When your opinion of yourself goes up, you’ll stop trying to get validation and attention from other people. You become less needy and find an inner stability even when your world might be negative or uncertain at times. #powerofpositivity . . . . . . . . . . . . . #summerbody #summerbodygoals #summerbodyinprogress #swimming #swimmer #fitnessmotivation #fitness #fitnessgirl #fitnessgirlsmotivation #fitgirls #fitnessaddict #fitnesslife #fitnesslifestyle #assamesegirl #southasianwomen #browngirls #bepositive #believeinyourself #youarebeautiful
@jugnistyle By @ashlukadraws “Be gentle with yourself” Your body is truly your temple therefore we must take care of it and cherish it. You don’t need to fit into the unreasonable standards that this society sets up for us women. You’re perfect the way you are. Don’t let desi aunties make you think you’re too skinny, fat, short, tall or dark. Love and please yourself because it’s impossible to please people. Don’t let the corrupted society belittle you because you don’t fit into their unrealistic criteria. We must remind ourselves that if we’re not compassionate and merciful and with our own bodies and emotions this society will tear us apart. “Be gentle with yourself” #jugniloves #southasian #woc #poc #selflove #jugnistyle #desigirl #desigirlswag #desiculture #indianart #selfcare #desiart #henna #browngirls #indianfashion #southasianwomen #empoweringwomen #womenrule #strongwomen #loveyourself #selflove #begentlewithyourself #begentle #womenarequeens #queens
"In the South Asian culture, brides and women in general are expected to be fragile, shy, quiet, gentle, etc. I’m not a big fan of that ideology, so this drawing is basically my own reaction to people who expect that kind of behavior from us brown women. It’s an idea I had and really loved. In general, south Asian women are oppressed in society and this drawing is sort of “fuck you” to that entire concept. We have a voice too and we will not be marginalized," says artist, @hibakhanart of this captivating piece. 💕🙌🏾 @thehivesociety 💕🙌🏾 #southasian #feminism #empowerment #girllove #desigirl #andproud #southasianwomen

I soooo excited about this custom shirt I designed! It's a labyrinth infused mandala design! I believe that a labyrinth is a metaphor for life. A labyrinth usually has one path that leads you to the center and that same path will lead you back out to the exit. •The center represents whatever success looks like for you. •The path represents your life journey. If we all stay on our own path and you trust the process you will be successful (reaching the center). It's not a matter of IF you will be successful rather WHEN you will become successful! Maharani in hindi means Queen. So stay on your path Maharani, you will be successful!

He takes the word of every section of the society very seriously ,be it dhobi or chowkidar but does little to fix their lives . Oh also, to his fans ,he's the epitome of patriarchal righteousness and cannot be questioned 💯! . There was a certain collateral damage when he fought the war against a despised neighbor but all's fair in love and war ain't it🏳️ No wonder he has such great appeal in this country. .

“Imagine varied street corners full of women sitting around talking, strolling, feeding children, exchanging recipes and books or planning the neighbourhood festival. Imagine street corners full of young women watching the world go by as they sip tea and discuss politics, soap operas and the latest financial budget. Imagine street corners full of older women contemplating the state of the world and reminiscing about their lives. Imagine street corners full of female domestic workers planning their next strike for a raise in minimum wage. If one can imagine all of this, one can imagine a radically altered city.” – Shilpa Phadke, Shilpa Ranade, Sameera Khan in their book, ‘Why Loiter’ In a time where the world is fraught with anxiety, Hajra Cheema’s ‘Canal day doojay par’, a detailed re-imagination of the Lahore Canal, opens up a possibility for us. She draws and imagines women in a world where we don’t have to fight for rights to the city, it is as much ours as it is anyone else’s. A free city, a city where I can be anyone, a city where I can walk and breathe and it wouldn’t be a spectacle. @bibiblew @whyloiter #womeninthecity #cityforwomen #karachiforwomen #lahoreforwomen #genderedcity #genderedspace #genderedpublics #publicspace #righttocity #feministart #feministspace #feministartist #southasianart #southasianwomen #leisure #awarapan #freecities #freewomen #art #feminism

Please give them a follow & support the movement 💙 #Repost @shakticollaborative ・・・ “I feel that being a creator pushes me to be my best physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I have to grow as much as I can because opportunities may float away the second I lose my competitive edge. Being a creator requires you to always be at ‘Olympic’ status and put out your best. It’s the most challenging and rewarding experience at the same time, and I don’t know of any other profession where I’d have to push myself this much - especially since one aspect of the product is me. It puts a magnifying glass on what I’m bringing to the table in all areas.” ~@anishaadusumilli ***** Check out the rest of her story at link in bio!

S H A K T I Let me introduce you to Shakti. Shakti is a cosmic existence as well as liberation, its most significant form being the Kundalini Shakti, a mysterious psychospiritual force. In Shaktism, Shakti is worshipped as the Supreme Being. Shakti embodies the active feminine energy of Shiva and is synonymously identified with Tripura Sundari and Parvati. We women all embody this powerful, divine, feminine energy within us. Sometimes we forget because someone told us otherwise, or we lose sight of how powerful we really are because we are too busy comparing ourselves rather than celebrating ourselves and other powerful women, or were just don't believe. I'm here to remind you, you are Shakti ( hindi word for strength.) P.S. This painting is for sale! DM me if you are interested in purchasing. P.P.S.

[Saturday, May 4] Yoni ki Baat (YKB) Is a South Asian adaptation of "The Vagina Monologues.” It's a nationally recognized and a growing collection of authentic, bold, powerful and poignant stories, written and performed by South Asian women. - YKB has evolved into a life of its own, nurturing a unique space of love, trust and sharing, while simultaneously building community among local South Asian women. Each year the YKB narratives shed light on special challenges and opportunities experienced with the South Asian socio-cultural context, whether in native lands or in adopted homelands. The powerful monologues are captivating in their intensity, their raw messages questioning societal norms, judgments and prejudices. - MenOlogues: The other side of YKB launched at 3rd Ahaana Festival in 2017. MenOlogues (men performing monologues...get it???) was conceived and created by the director of Ahaana. Her vision of introducing men and their stories to the monologue type of writing and performing, is in the same theme as YKB, but with a more casual and comfortable approach. The ACT II of YKB as it were. At the end of every YKB performance during the Q&A session, at least one person in the audience would bring up the subject of men's stories. Well, here it is! Ahaana is proud to be blazing a trail with hopes that other cities may adopt this model and launch MenOlogues of their own. - 📍 5998 Alcala Park ⏱ 7PM 💡 For Adults and Mature 16+ 🔎 ahaana.org - _______________________________________________________ 👉🏻FOLLOW @sandiegoindiancommunity for more information on local events and news for the San Diego Indian Community ______________________________________________________ . . . . #ahaana #southasian #vaginamonologues #sandiegoart #sandiegodance #sandiegoplay #sandiegoperformer #menologues #sdic #sandiegoactor #sandiegoactress #girlboss #womenempowerment #ucsd #ucsdtheatreanddance #ucsdtheatre #sandiegotheatre #musicaltheatre #lajolla #sandiegoevents #adultcomedy #sdevents #sandiegobound #lajollalife #dramebaaz #southasianwomen #browngirls #indianwomen #performanceart #indiansociety

Morning early risers, It has been a while since I have posted anything due to pure sheer enjoyment of allowing myself to connect with the self. This past weekend was spent with family and I cannot tell you enough how special these moments are with loved ones. As a director, I see myself telling stories of personal experiences or ones that I hear many near and dear women expressing when it comes to marriage, motherhood, wedding planning, a sacred romance with the self or simply challenges. I have to pose the model and expressions are the most important. The voice is silent in the photos but the feelings and emotions are what give rise to the colours and people in the photographs to help the audience connect. Hence I titled my brand THE SILENT LENS. THE @thesai.lens Bts: @chandanfashion @mustbekismet_official for their 2019 Issue. Thank you @ishmilwaterman #styleinfluence #styledstory #thesailens #silence #bridalstylist #fashioninfluences #torontoevents #torontofashion #southasianwomen #styleinspire

Last year @browngirlmag x @karunachani opened a much needed platform for Women to share their #MeToo stories. A panel of women came forward to share their stories to a room full of people who not only supported them, but saw the need for change. . . . Being a part of the panel, I shared my story that shapes me into the human I am today. This year, @browngirlmag @sakhinyc are holding this integral event on 4/9/19 in NYC that will be key for women who have their own stories to share and/or supporters to come forward and be a part of this movement. . . Please check the flyer by swiping right and be there to support these influential leaders if you’re in the area. . . #metoo #browngirlmag #timesup #southasianwomen #hearmystory #support #listen #growtogether #bethechange #breakthesilence
Episode 1 is officially up‼️This woman has taught me so much about life, yet our views still differ on so many topics. We get into some heated discussions on the LGBTQ community, interracial relationships, and “the perfect marriage age.” I would encourage all of you to ask your parents similar questions and listen to their perspectives!
