On 10th March 2017, Kirthi Jayakumar @kirthijayakumar conducted a TweetChat on “Why do women’s voices matter and how can we leverage social media to encourage more women to speak up?” and it was done especially to commemorate the occasion of International Women’s Day. The chat began by discussing the invisibility of women in history and how they were never given a platform and why it was always women who were invisible. As the chat progressed the discussion revolved around the women who succeeded in making history by breaking gender stereotypes, about the consequences of invisibility of women and a thorough discussion about institutional changes to be made to put women back into history. The chat ended with some of the best and worst practices in the inclusion of women in history.
