About the Project
India is one of the United States’ most important partners in shaping the future of the Indo-Pacific and its strategic competition with China. Yet many of the most influential voices in India’s policy issues—political, industrial, technological, and social—go unrecognized in U.S. policy and media circles. A number of these are women, defying American conceptions of Indian policy as a male-dominated space. These women’s perspectives are critical to any strong understanding of India’s changing domestic landscape, its relationship with the United States, and its place in the world’s future.
The Women You Should Know in India Project on the Asia Unbound blog addresses this gap by interviewing powerful women in different Indian policy spaces. Twice a month, the Asia Unbound blog will publish an interview with a Woman You Should Know in India, whose work influences the U.S.-India bilateral relationship and India’s relationship with the world. Each interview will feature her work and analysis on emerging dynamics in her sphere of influence and how they matter for India and the United States. Think of it as a roadmap to understanding both policymaking in India and the game-changing women who shape it.
