Womensweb.in organized the event Orange flower Digital Summit and Awards which celebrated the voices of women on the internet, who are key in bringing about and talking about change in India.
Founder Director Nidhi Goyal was on the opening panel titled “Women face the worst online abuse - yet this movement of women speaking up will not be quelled”. She spoke alongside Dr. Shilpa Phadke, Founder, Why Loiter and Lalita Iyer, author and moderated by Anusha Singh, lawyer.
They looked at how online spaces mirror offline spaces. Although women face violence within the cyber space, it also becomes a powerful tool of engagement and inclusion.
Nidhi described how she used the online space to further the reach of her stand up comedy which uses humor as a tool to tackle stigma around disability.
