  1. “Entrepreneurship in India is anyway hard," she says—for women, it becomes that much tougher because people rarely back them with money, or give them the first contract. Women are never encouraged to take risks. “If there is a guy, they say go for it, for a girl, they say, how will you manage, you have a family, a kid, you want to do this also, it’s too much. Give up something—give up work."

    These words are nothing but Truth itself what she said , it's tough for a women in India. All her trust and efforts will get discriminated and criticized , made fun of, forced , delayed.

    She won't even have chances for a discussion , voice out her ideas on what she wishes doing.

    Few get respected, acknowledged, and succeed. Wishes Ms. Ameera.

  2. Very inspiring and genuine talk. One can tell her passion and commitment to it. Patriarchy is a social disease and the sooner we get rid of it, we will be much better as societies, economics, ecology and certainly as human beings. Thank you for this illuminating talk | LCA

  3. Questions are correct but many women quit professionally in midstream due to marriage and kids. Exceptions like Ameera are very few. It will not change much in india as same case even in USA which is less patriarchal. Talk was useless except listing known problems nothing in it . Such talks need to show how one overcomes them not which are those problem.

  4. Ma'am I believe that's not reality marriages is in our hand and the person we chose to marry …more over its mere excuse of failure …there are stories where in extreme conditions woman proved their potential
