This is what Ekta Kapoor, Guneet Monga and Tahira Kashyap Khurranas Indian Women Rising is all about.

One of the negative points about the Indian Cinema is the poor representation of women in the film industry. It's evident that Bollywood gives far lesser importance to female stars than their male counterparts but the the condition behind the camera is even worse. To make things better, Ekta Kapoor, Guneet Monga and Tahira Kashyap Khurrana have come together to lay the foundation of Indian Women Rising, a cinema collective.

This is what Tahira had to say about the initiative, "Tahira Kashyap Khurrana adds, “There is a limited amount of work represented about women and the scope reduces further when it’s by the women. We, as a cinema collective, are trying to address this in the scope of films. Since there is representation of limited material when it concerns women and their stories, we easily get stereotyped. Either we have revolutionaries on one end of the spectrum or tragedy stricken damsels on the other extreme end. I mean we can be all of that but there is so much more to us. Our bandwidth is broader than the general assumption which perhaps will surface if we have more women working not just in front of the camera but behind as well. This collective intends to disrupt the boxed notions about women.”
