Women Talk Online

A forum for women to talk to women

Calling eager bloggers!

Most times, it’s about being fat, maybe too fat, as in the case of Holley Mangold, the US weightlifter who tips the scales at 157 kilograms and has been constantly suffering jibes about her ‘obvious’ weight problem.  But what is your take on the connection between how you look and what you achieve?

A day in the life of a waitress

My day begins when most people have finished theirs. I enter the misty old pub which reeks of stale cigarettes and unwashed cutlery. Before people come to amuse themselves and have a good time and one hears the cheerful clinking of glasses, the place has to be scrubbed clean. So, I roll up my sleeves and pick up the broom.

Editorial: “To dress or to undress?”

"Slutwalk" programmes are an attempt to sensitize men towards their female contemporaries

Sherlyn Chopra is the first Indian woman to feature in Playboy. The Indian media is choc-a-bloc with news about the model, her life and challenges, the hardships she faced and the accolades she won after she was chosen to “decorate” the pages of Playboy. The media in India obviously knows that this will generate a lot of interest, and it has. Until now, Indian newspapers and magazines have been trying to create the impression that they are simply presenting the “facts” as they are. Strangely enough, in a country which has seen a couple of shocking incidents of crime against women in the past few weeks, nobody has commented on the social impact of Sherlyn’s “contribution” to Playboy or that of other scantily clad stars.
