Indian Matchmaking: Stereotypes Reinforced?


About the Webinar

Did Indian Matchmaking hold a mirror to our society? Is this show a reality of how most of the general public think? Is the show reinforcing stereotypes attached to ambitious women, class, caste, re-marriages that we thought did not exist in modern India? In this conversation we will unravel and explore some of the central themes surrounding this series such as the reality of the Indian arranged marriage system in India, gender stereotyping, the need for women to be “flexible and compromise” for a successful marriage and the rampant casteism, classism prevalent in our society. In this conversation we will be joined by Ms. Mihira Sood, Advocate, Supreme Court of India; Ms. Tanvee Nandan, Assistant Professor and Assistant Dean, Jindal Global Law School and Ms. Pranati Jain, Founder, Edamame.
