Helped the badminton star under the #betikhilao campaign, working towards women empowerment
New Delhi, October 27th, 2016: Roposo, India’s favourite fashion social network, has always been working towards women empowerment and breaking stereotypes – especially in the men dominated field of sports. Roposo sports stars such as Sania Mirza are an inspiration for young girls, both for their impeccable style and fierce court moves. In line with its beliefs Roposo supported the budding badminton player Tanvi Lad under the #betikhilao campaign. It was a great moment of pride when Tanvi won her first Nationals title in the Women’s Singles Category at the Malayala Manorama Senior Ranking National Badminton Tournament last Sunday.
Like all sports women starting out in India, Tanvi too had to face some major hurdles. From the usual ‘what’s there in sports’ to ‘why should we waste our money sponsoring you’ or ‘people don’t watch name-less player’s games’. World class badminton players get a 360-degree support from the government - brand sponsorship and other associations. The upcoming talent struggles to make a mark on the global platform. It is here that Roposo helped Tanvi keep up her determination and asked her only to concentrate on her game while they managed everything else for her. Sports for Roposo isn’t only about fashion, it is about getting deserving people their rightful opportunities.
Commenting on Tanvi’s win, Mayank Bhangadia, Co-founder and CEO at Roposo said, ‘We at Roposo firmly believe in the unbounded potential that Indian women hold in everything they choose to do. Lack of opportunities and back pulls because of social stigmas have hitherto been a hurdle for these super talented women like Tanvi, and we take it upon us to support them in any way that we can.’
