Radhika’s work-life balance in Ki Kore Bolbo Tomay
A passionate fashion designer, Ki Kore Bolbo Tomay’s Radhika Sen, was faced by numerous challenges that Thammi threw her at her.

Apu’s determination in Aparajita Apu
Although Apu has faced several gender-biases, mainly coming from her own father, her determination to prove her capabilities to the world remained unbroken. Besides not giving up on her dreams, she also proved that she’s capable of doing everything that a man can. Her determination and strength to stand up for her rights proved to be extremely inspirational.
Kamala’s remarriage in Rani Rashmoni
Given the conservative approach towards life people had in the 19th Century, it was not normal for a widow to remarry. But Rani Maa broke this stereotypical practice and allowed Kamala to marry Raghobendra after several arguments and fights with members of the society.
Rani Rashmoni’s women picking up the revolvers
To Sir Donald’s surprise, when he threatened to kill Rani Maa, he was met with revolvers pointing at him and his men by Jagadamba, Padma, Kamala, and Peshonno. At a time when Britishers ruled the country and enslaved Indians, it became a huge act of women empowerment as all of them picked up the weapons to defend their honour. With zero fear in their hearts and immense confidence in confronting the British, they broke the stereotype about a woman’s strength, courage and abilities.
