Writing that International Women's Day article or blogpost is a March ritual that I look forward to--though I am not sure why. Over the years, I have now written a few and instead of tweeting them all out one by one and annoying you, decided to build an archive post. I will just keep adding them here and sharing this one instead!
The first media article I did was at the invitation of Prayaag Akbar ten years ago. It was the centenary of the observance.
