Society track of The Goa Project 2016

A society is a group of people involved in persistent social interaction, or a large social grouping sharing the same geographical or social territory, typically subject to the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations. Societies are characterised by patterns of relationships (social relations) between individuals who share a distinctive culture and institutions; a given society may be described as the sum total of such relationships among its constituent members. In the social sciences, a larger society often evinces stratification or dominance patterns in subgroups

  • Social Media and Technology: How are these two affecting societal situations today, and how are we leveraging them to stimulate change in untapped areas.

  • Stories of Social impact: The rising tide of social entrepreneurship. Social impact projects at scale and at the grassroots.

  • Patterns of relationships between subgroups of society: How cultural expectations affect our approach to politics, civil sense, and how we go about daily life.

Sex Crimes And The City- How To Be Today's Carrie Bradshaw

Submitted Jan 9, 2016

To reflect on an Urban Woman’s Life and share what I’ve learnt about keeping myself safe, while still having all the fun I need.

Outline

In a culture of paradoxes, there is no place for a woman to BE. But no matter what label you’re stuck with (courtesy: society), you have to fight-fight-fight for every inch of space you deserve. Unfortunately, none of us are strangers to anything between fear and being victim blamed. What have we learnt from it?
