Breaking Down Patriarchy:

Unveiling Benign Power Structures

About this Podcast:

In today’s episode we have Aparna Piramal Raje and Megha Mawandia, shedding light on the complexities of patriarchy and feminism. This episode poignantly clarifies the true intent of feminism—not as an antagonism towards men, but rather as a collective endeavor towards gender equality—and how this impacts society at large. We consider the transformative potential of establishing an “Anti-Patriarchy Day,” sparking discussions and actions aimed at deconstructing ingrained gender disparities, and we discuss the power dynamics at play within decision-making processes from boardrooms to households.
