All-Women Open Mic Night & Free Drinks: All The Women’s Day Celebrations You Need To Be At

Raisa posted on 08 March

Grab the girl gang {and the guy gang!} and head to these uber cool, fun and interesting events celebrating women.

Take Back The Mic

To everyone who said women are not funny, we say “haters back off”. Come watch a bunch of bawse ladies smash gender stereotypes by having you roll over with laughter. Kalkutta Komedian’s all-female open mic night at Studio C is exactly the kind of therapy we need to get over all the sexism. Pass up INR 100 for a night of cheeky comedy and brutal honesty. It starts at 8pm. Check out all the details on the Facebook page here.
