Women of the world is a global movement of festivals celebrating women & girls and taking a frank look at the obstacles they face.
Founder Director Nidhi Goyal was invited for a talk on “Power and Protest”. She explored this space of power and protest through 3 lenses, as a disabled woman, as an activist and as a standup comedian talking about gender and disability. She emphasized upon the importance of having a voice and how often this voice is snatched away from persons with disabilities and especially women with disabilities. Art becomes a tool to navigate the power structures that exist to protest the very same oppressive systems.
