Ladies and Gentlemen:

Good Evening, and welcome to the thirdedition of Outlook Speakout.

For the last 24 years, the Outlook Group has enjoyed a great reputation in the world of Indian journalism.

In the last three years, we have tried to makeOutlook SpeakOutan outspoken extension of the magazine, on stage.

I must say, we have found our corner and we are proud of it.

Outlook Speakout has emerged as alively platform, for thefinest minds and brightest ideas,dictated by the optimism and anxieties of our times.

In the last few years, sexual assault and womens empowerment movements have upended public conversation about womens issues in India and the world.

Women are waging a battle to reclaim their future: public space to workplace, the freedom to wear anything,do anything, beanything.

And people have started to listen, to the obstacles women encounter in their daily lives, both personal and professional.

As one of the most credible media groups in India,Outlook has shined a light on womens anger and efforts to get their voices off the ground #HappyToBleed or #MeToo.

We recognise and respect womens demand for a safe world. Safe from taboo, stigma, shame, ill-health, prejudice, fear and violence.

Our theme today is: Womens Vision 2022: What Women WantReclaiming The Narrative.

In its scope, it is a continuation, or the logical extension, of last years theme:Women Empowerment. As in the past. we have a refreshing galaxy of minds today to debate openly and thoroughly the great issue of the day.

While, Indian women are being felicitated, celebrated and awarded like never before by political parties and media of all stripes, The Outlook Group doesnt want to honour just a handful of powerful women.

We believe in talking about their problems and encourage women who contributein ways big and smallto making the life of others a little better, a little safer.

I thank you all for joining us in our endeavour to make a difference.
