Monday, May 16, 2016 – Thinking and acting beyond clichés! That’s been the underlying mission statement of the team behind Girliyapa - a premium online content channel about women that intends to create progressive content, not only for women but about women and the issues they battle and are confronted with in their daily lives!
The all women team at Girliyapa aims at sharing fun, quirky stories from a woman’s perspective including getting their viewers to think beyond clichés. The Girliyapa team of women want to say things women always ‘think of’, but never say perhaps because of their fear of being judged by society and her peers.
This time the issue that takes precedence over all others, is the burning issue of marital rape that many of our young married women face today. In times of trouble, when Nani, Mummy, Papa, Mausa, Masi, Masi, and Masi come together, there's nothing that cannot be solved by an Indian family! Right? Let's face it, women in India will not be free from the shackles of injustice. Not today. Noow. And by giving up and accepting it all as a part of the life thrust upon us, well, that's not going to make life any easier for us all is it?
Time for Change. Time to Change.
This satire takes a cynical look at the issue of marital rape in the form of a sitcom, with the wish that maybe, one day, we might start thinking differently. It’s time for change. Change the way we think, change our mindsets. But most of all, instituting changes in a place most of us consider to be the "safest" - our homes.
Talking about her team’s latest video, Tracy Dsouza, Channel Head, Girliyapa, said, "I want people to watch the video and REACT to it in the right way! Let's ask ourselves who do we really relate to in the video, the most? Should the protagonist have given in to the pressures? It's time for women to speak up!! And what better way than for Girliyapa to voice it! Write in to us with #IWillSpeakUp and let us know what you all think."
It's 2016, after all. So promise yourself this. #IWillSpeakUp.

Launched in March this year, Girliyapa has been creating entertaining and engaging videos exclusively for girls and women. The team creates liberal content – content that tells stories & experiences about women, by women in an entertaining and engaging way. The first presentation by the Girliyapa team of girls launched around International Women’s Day on March 7, 2016 addressed this issue through their popular #The Period Song which already became an online sensation instantly! The Girliyapa team took a popular party track and turned it into a ‘period’ Anthem! Periods are now a cool thing ! The video featured celebrities and social influencers like Sandhya Mridul, Rukhsar Rehman, Pavleen Gujral, Rajshri Deshpande, lead actors from Permanent Roommates – Sumeet Vyas and Nidhi Singh, lead actors from Pitchers - Naveen Kasturia and Maanvi Gagroo, one of the most loved internet couples - Jitendra Kumar and Akanksha Thakur, vlogger – Santushi Shetty, stand up comedian Sumukhi Suresh and other YouTubers like Rickshwali etc.
In their second video presentation – Why should Hot Girls have all the fun? the Girliyapa team showcased the exact opposite! Where stereotypically, not so hot women, confront a guy who is staring at their hot friend and explain logically why he should look at them instead. The hilarious video presentation starred Mallika Dua and Srishti Shrivastava and was written by Shruti Madan from the Girliyapa team.
