ST:
Please tell us briefly about you.

Ami
Behram Shroff:
Flair
bartender, juggler and a wanderer. I enjoy my curiosity and it has taken me
through the various paths of my life.

ST:
Who is a woman that inspires you the most and why?

Ami
Behram Shroff:
My
mother and my sister too. I was my sisters biggest fan as a child. My mother
has been a rockstar of various kinds. My multi-tasking skills and little
organization skills that I may have, have come from her. Along with a lot more.
She juggled between teaching Sociology in a college, managing the house and all
its various responsibilities and her kids. And that’s another level of
juggling.

So these are the two awesome women who
taught me a lot a life and made me cooler than I would ever be.

ST:
How are you celebrating this year’s International Women’s Day?

Ami
Behram Shroff:
Celebrating
it by reminding people of the concepts of equality/feminism and the celebration
continues until the next women’s day comes.

Also will help other women celebrate
with a free cocktail at London Taxi!





ST:
What is the most important message you want to send out to all the women around
the world on this occasion?

Ami
Behram Shroff:
Discover
your awesomeness.

ST:
What according to you is ‘women empowerment’?

Ami
Behram Shroff:
It’s
basic equality. As simple as that. It’s the avoidance of suppression, societal
control, gender stereotyping, gender violence, sexual violence. To destroy
practices like female infanticide, child marriage, marital rape, slut shaming,
body shaming, over protection, to avoid external restriction on movement, speech,
occupation, marriage and decisions of all kinds.

It’s empowerment until it reaches the
mark of equality for all 3 genders. Women, Transgenders and Men.

ST:
What would you say are the main challenges facing women at present in
India? 

Ami
Behram Shroff:
All of
the above. And it all stems from a sexist patriarchal heterosexual mentality.

ST:
Where do you want to see yourself in next 5 years?

Ami
Behram Shroff:
Hopefully
alive and killing it in the bar. Maybe have my own café or bar or a cool space
of some kind.
