Unesco spoke to Anjum Chopra about her experiences as a woman broadcaster in India.
The media, or even the audience, took it very positively. In terms of men taking it well, it was a mixed bag to begin with, as to why a woman is sitting here and what has she got to contribute.— Anjum Chopra, sports broadcaster, India
I always felt that if I have been entrusted with the task of doing something, I should do it to the best of my abilities and to the abilities that is actually expected out of me as a broadcaster. So, I have never seen it as a boy's thing or a woman's thing. I have always seen the sport as a gender neutral sport.— Anjum Chopra, sports broadcaster, India
