Educator and entrepreneur Divya Gokulnath is co-founder and director of Byju’s, an online educational platform where anyone can enroll in the courses of their choice.

This isn’t the first time a woman’s accomplishments have been limited to being someone’s wife. Our patriarchal configuration still sees the woman as the subject of a household whose main achievement is to marry, give birth to the heir of the family, and be immediately available when called upon for household chores.

As a society, we are so focused on her “private life” that we forget that a woman has an individual identity away from the four walls of the house. She could be someone’s daughter, wife, and mother, but her identity could be a businesswoman, writer, lawyer, doctor, educator, dancer, and many other things.

But renowned news publications and portals continue to denigrate a woman’s accomplishment by calling her someone’s wife or asking her if she could ‘manage’ home and work effectively.
