How India’s women achievers are shutting down mansplaining

We’ve all been there.

Pretty much every woman knows what it feels like to be "mansplained" or "manterrupted" - when a man explains something to a woman in a condescending or patronising way or cuts her off in the middle of a sentence.

Lots of men do it and it is super annoying.

A workers' union in Sweden has even set up a hotline for women to complain about their mansplaining colleagues.

Is it really so hard for men to stop giving unsolicited advice to women?

Is it a reflection of the broader issue of sexism and power dynamics?

A lot of women leaders who speak up and assert themselves are often considered too aggressive.

And there simply aren’t enough women at the top.

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we talk to three prominent women leaders breaking the glass ceiling in public services, the corporate world and the legal sphere.

We ask them how they shut down mansplaining, and about overcoming challenges in their careers.

Presenter: Devina Gupta Contributors: Kiran Bedi, former police officer and Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry; Mansi Tripathy, Managing Director, Shell Lubricants India; Vrinda Grover, senior Supreme Court lawyer
