The Inaugural Status Single Awards in 2024 Honoured Twelve Remarkable Single Women

News Desk, News Nation 360 : The first-ever Status Single Awards were held on Sunday, April 7 at The Park Hotel in Kolkata in collaboration with the Urvaraa Foundation. The event honoured the hardships and scars of 12 remarkable single women in a variety of fields while also recognising their inspiring journeys and accomplishments. Let's Talk, Charnock Hospital, and the Alok Foundation are sponsoring the awards; The Park, Kolkata is serving as the hospitality partner. Since its founding in 2021 as a Facebook-recognized community group of 4,000 women, Status Single has attracted significant attention from around the world. Its offline tribe now spans nine Indian cities: Kolkata, Delhi-NCR, Lucknow, Mumbai, Goa, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, and

Chennai. International chapters are soon to launch in Canada, Dubai, and the UK. With 74.1 million members, Status Single is the first and only community in India specifically for urban single women. This represents 39% of all Indian women and is our highest-ever demographic. Sreemoyee Piu Kundu is a writer and columnist on gender and sexuality. Her first nonfiction work, Status Single, was published in 2018 and quickly rose to the top of the bestseller charts. It is considered a seminal work on female identity in a country where marriage and motherhood are still the highest validations for women.
