Do you know a young woman who will vote for the first time in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections? Is she between the 18-24 age group? Has she done something out of the ordinary? Then tell us about her! As part of The Quint’s ‘Me, The Change’ campaign, we are looking for young women achievers.

Hetal Dedhiya is one such young woman we came across in our search. Hetal is Bollywood’s first female gaffer. She is also the only woman doing this work. Speaking about her work, Hetal says, “It feels great to be the only female gaffer for so many years.” But she also adds that a job is a job. “I don’t think a man or a woman will be different at it,” she says.

Hetal supports The Quint’s ‘Me, The Change’ campaign as we search for more women like her, who are doing something out of the ordinary or breaking a stereotype and are achievers in their own ways.


Watch the video to catch a sneak peek of Hetal’s everyday life at her job and what she does.

Impressed by Hetal’s hatke career choice and her life? Know someone like her who is daring and different? Then nominate them for ‘Me, The Change’.
