The Quint’s Women’s Day Special: No More Bechaari, Ab Laugh Naari
What makes a woman laugh? This Women’s Day, join The Quint’s campaign to laugh off the sanskaari stereotypes.
On International Women’s Day, we ask you a simple question, ‘What makes a woman laugh?’
Is it stereotypes ka atyachaar, or dollops of sanskaar? Join The Quint’s campaign, ‘Ab Laugh Naari’, and help us slay some misogynist notions, and also prove that laughter is contagious.
Here are a few ideas we had. Watch The Quint’s Ab Laugh Naari promo video to check them out.
The poem in the video:
When you’re asked to be silent, susheel, sanskaari,
Break some stereotypes, girl! Ab Laugh Naari
Going where? Wearing what? Sawaal pooch jantaa bhadki,
I'll do what I want. It's good to be a Buri Ladki!
Yo, my desi girl, job pe maango equal pay,
Hoti hai harassment to bata do cheekh ke
Arey behen, bikini pehen, if you don’t wanna wear a sari,
Shut up trolls, slay 10 on 10... Ab Laugh Naari
Khaamosh! Full-stop. Period. Why is talking about menstruation bad?
Laugh off the taboo people. Even social media loves to hold the pad
Love one, love all, pyaar pe kyun limits lagao,
Girls, go celebrate with a beer. LOL, ROFL, LMAO!
