About Us

Kolkata is a progressive city that empowers its women, giving this one-half of its population the freedom to excel and express themselves, much more than many other Indian cities. It does not put women on a pedestal but accepts them as equal partners in its progress. This has transpired into tens of thousands of women who live extraordinary lives and contribute to making this city -- and the world -- a place of hope.

The Times of India is proud to bring you these extraordinary stories of women -- young and old, rich and poor, born into privilege or struggling to get there -- who have one thing in common: their zeal to make the lives of others around them a little better, thereby making Kolkata a better place.
