Tia Shah explores what infographic statistics can tell us about female entrepreneurship, what changes we have seen, and what changes we might see in the future.

Being an entrepreneur is not easy and being a female one is even harder. Historically and in the current day, female entrepreneurs face many challenges to starting and sustaining businesses. Not only do female entrepreneurs have to face inequality, limited access to education, familial pressure, sexism and more in many patriarchal societies– but women also have to tackle funding biases’, a lack of role models and supportive networks in the business world as well. Despite these challenges, female entrepreneurs can and are emerging, and their ranks are growing each day. Tia Shah explores the many struggles that girl entrepreneurs have historically had to overcome, and the ones that they currently face – seeing how a changing environment and world has eliminated some challenges while perpetuating others. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/girlspeak/support

In this podcast, Tia Shah explores the power of food in Indian culture. As she states, "Our personal, political, commercial, socio-cultural and psychological relationship with food reflects how we see ourselves; our roles in society and the home, and also how we see others and their roles. Food can crucially be used to define and bolster gender roles, but I will also explore how food can be used to resist oppression and to demonstrate conflict. In particular, I want to talk about how the preparation, serving and eating of food is linked to women and specific gender roles in India. My interest in this topic has sprung from my research for Girl Museum’s Girl Child of India exhibition. This new exhibition is all about what is like being a girl in India "--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/girlspeak/support

IDG 2019: Girls in Museums

IDG 2019: Girls in Museums

2018-10-1000:16:02

From Boston to Lexington to London, it’s clear that girls are in museums all around us. Yet their stories are often only footnotes - if they are mentioned at all. And when girls do take center stage, it is often in the context of their adult lives or, very rarely, a treat to those of us looking for them.That’s why Girl Museum celebrates each Day of the Girl by looking at how girls are represented in museums around the world. However, our work isn’t limited to just today. We work tirelessly everyday, as an all-volunteer team, using our free time to create exhibitions and projects, review museums, and even bring you this podcast - all in the hopes of increasing girls’ representation in museums and fostering a more inclusive, gender equal world.

Young Suffragettes

Young Suffragettes

2018-07-2000:17:53

In 2018, we are celebrating several significant moments in suffrage history. 110 years ago, the first female member of parliament was elected in Finland, which was also the first country to introduce women’s suffrage. 170 years ago, the Seneca Falls Convention - the first-ever women’s rights convention - was held in the United States, and would lead to the introduction of the first legislation for suffrage in Congress only twenty years later. And finally, on February 6, 2018, we celebrated 100 years since British women (at least, those over the age of 30) gained the right to vote.These are all significant moments in history, but oftentimes, suffrage history focuses solely on the adult women who fought for our right to vote. But what about young girls? Did they play a role? In this podcast, we’ll explore the stories of three young girls - Clara Lemlich, Dora Thewlis, and Bessie Watson - who were active in the suffrage movements. We’ll also look at some interesting thoughts about girls--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/girlspeak/support
