Shaili Chopra is a game-changer in India’s digital landscape, having brought women’s issues to the forefront like none other by creating path-breaking digital platforms like SheThePeople.TV and together which have over a billion in digital reach.

Shaili’s new book Sisterhood Economy, out recently, is being embraced by audiences for its power-packed insight into the lives of Indian women who are tired of being slotted in the triptych of badass, bitch or bechari. Times of India calls her book ‘a timely and thought-provoking book, not just for women but all readers,’ while Scroll notes the book “talks of things that matter to us today.” The new Indian woman is dreaming big and seeking change. Chopra’s bold and collective call for women has led her to ask questions like – Why women deserve equality in the bedsheets, how can the mother-in-law contribute to the GDP, why are single women rocking it and more.

The journalist turned entrepreneur is an Aspen Fellow and also holds the honour of receiving India’s biggest journalism award, the Ram Nath Goenka Award for Journalism. She has authored five books.
