It has been said over and over again, that ‘Women are their own worst enemies. With repeated studies, dialogue and content published that says the same, it has almost become a belief. This is a grave injustice and a stereotype imposed on the womenkind that disregards the spirit of sisterhood among women.
In a move to provide a platform to women to connect with one another, help one another and embrace the spirit of sisterhood, Reliance Foundation chairperson Nita Mukesh Ambani launched a social media platform ‘Her Circle’ on the occasion of International Women’s Day. With an aim to empower women, Her Circle is envisioned to be a one-stop destination to provide women-related content that is engaging and upliftment-oriented even as it connects women through a social platform.
“I am delighted that we can create such a circle of support and solidarity for millions of women through HerCircle.in, a digital platform that invites every woman to join and make her own,” said Nita Ambani, Chairperson, Reliance Foundation.
She added, “With the Digital Revolution enabling round the clock global networking and collaboration, Her Circle welcomes ideas and initiatives of women from all cultures, communities and countries. We make sisterhood and equality our touchpoints on this platform.”
Her Circle subscribers will be able to watch videos, read articles with solution-oriented life strategies covering living, wellness, finance, work, personality development, community service, beauty, fashion, entertainment, creative self-expression and active participation in public life through women-led NGOs and other organisations.
The social media platform will also provide women with answers from Reliance’s panel of experts on health, wellness, education, entrepreneurship, finance, philanthropy, mentorship and leadership. The section on upskilling and jobs will help the women find new professional skills as well as get job opportunities suited to their profile. It will give access to masterclasses from the best in the business or avail complimentary digital courses.
Ambani said, “When women lean on women, incredible things happen. All my life I have been surrounded by strong women from whom I have learnt compassion, resilience, and positivity and in return, I have strived to pass on my learnings to others.”
She added, “As a daughter who grew up in a family of 11 girls, I was taught to believe in myself. From my daughter Isha, I have received unconditional love and confidence to continue to follow my dreams. From my daughter-in-law Shloka, I have learnt empathy and patience,” Ambani said.
Her Circle will provide space for women to share their life stories of success-through-struggle, which can provide inspiration, hope and resilience to others.
