New Media offerings for ‘Power Women’

Different media platforms are out to celebrate Women’s Day in various ways. Bigadda.com, the youth networking site from Reliance ADA Group, would be launching ‘power women’ from diverse fields to blog on the occasion of International Women’s Day on March 8, 2009. The all-woman power bloggers would include renowned names like actress Pooja Bedi, media personality and columnist Malavika Sangghvi, former Miss World Diana Hayden, nutritionist Dr Anjali Mukherjee, upcoming actress Neetu Chandra, film director and writer Madhureeta Anand, and debutant actress Mahie Gill.

This initiative from Bigadda.com will enable women achievers from distinct fields such as film, journalism, society, health and fashion to come together on a single platform and speak, share and express their views.

Announcing this initiative, Shivanandan Pare, COO, Bigadda.com, said, “This is the best way to celebrate Women’s Day. It is just the right occasion to acknowledge the achievement and contribution made by these power women in their respective fields. Bigadda expects that through their blogs, they will inspire women across the nation.”

Malavika Sangghvi believes that time has come for change, for connecting and for commitment, and that women can lead the way. “I want to now use my experience, and talent to form a community of like-minded, dynamic, and intelligent women, who will use my blog to network with each other, share their views and take up issues and causes closest to their hearts,” she added.

Apart from Bigadda’s tribute to power woman bloggers, online bus ticketing site Ticketvala.com also has some special offers for women. Single woman travelers often face various hurdles. To eliminate the problems of eve-teasing and harassment faced by female commuters, ladies will soon have the option of booking their seats next to a female passenger while travelling in long distance buses. As per the criterion, if a woman books a seat in the bus, operators will keep the seat next to it empty. A male passenger will be allotted the berth only if both the seats are not reserved. This system has already been launched in South India by Ticketvala.com. A number of single woman travelers have expressed their comfort towards this service and have started travelling more often, claims the site.

Ticketvala.com has offices in all the major bus hubs of Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune and Ahmedabad.

This Woman’s Day, women are empowered to connect to the world, be it online or on the road, on their own.
