How women in Bengaluru navigate their working lives and the city

City of Women is an upcoming podcast about how women in the city explores the calculated strategies, the backdoor negotiations and the sometimes absurd lengths women go to have fun and feel free in their city.

Every Indian woman knows that being out in the city comes with rules – rules that determine who gets to be where and what you can and can’t do. But this show is not about those rules. It’s about how they get broken, bent, and jumped over when women decide to do things just for themselves. City of Women is fun, complex, and a bit of a joyride into the minds of women and the streets of Bengaluru.
