WikiWomenCamp participants, through heartfelt interactions, forge similar connections, supporting each other in their endeavors and pledging solidarity in the pursuit of gender equality and social change.

Kanya Puja

Kanya Puja, a Hindu ritual during Navratri, venerates the divine feminine through a young girl embodying goddess Durga. This tradition underscores the strength and purity associated with women from a young age. 

At WikiWomenCamp, we draw parallels between this reverence for young girls and the potential of women to be influential figures in society, emphasising the celebration and recognition of women’s contributions and strength.
