International Women’s Day is about celebrating the changes women have brought to their lives. Changes, however small, matter, say some of the pioneering women of IIT Kharagpur

A video doing the rounds on WhatsApp asks women to do one thing this Women’s Day – to “uncelebrate”. Celebrations are due, it says, only when the world is truly free of gender bias. It is like saying you are allowed to go out with your friends only if you score 100 percent in your board examination. What about the distinctions or even the pass scores in the many exams in between? Don’t they count?
