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
