For expression, for freedom, for joy and for solidarity in womanhood.
The Woman Inc is a collective undertaking of diverse voices to initiate discussion and engagement on a wide range of issues facing women. We aim to provide, but not limit ourselves to, critique of socio-political, economical and cultural issues at large which undermine more than half of world’s population on the basis of their gender. We intend to strive for and to lend our voice to all such moves that carry the vision of a fair, just and equitable society.
Woman Inc is a place for every woman and her expression. Whether she chooses to speak through her writing, poems, books, pictures, paintings, photographs, enterprise, endeavors or something else, we would like to hear her voice. More than that, we would like others to hear her too. We recognize different shades of feminism and welcome them all. We are as much for the victim and the survivor as we are for the empowered and the cheerleader.
