First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
Since the RespectWomen internship is an online internship, there is no office or formalities as such!
However, the selected interns are sent a few guidelines, stating the number of articles, word limit, style of writing and other requirements.
The main task is writing articles under different headings.
The main headings are Feminism Redefined, Women’s Guide, Women Achievers etc. There is considerable flexibility allowed while writing.
However, the topics need to be approved before you write an article.
Work environment and people
The intern will generally get a feedback on the articles written.
The interns at RespectWomen are required to write on different topics. I wrote about marriage, rape laws, female genital mutilation, people like Shubhreet Kaur, Angelina Jolie etc.
The best thing is that you can hone your writing skills and learn about a variety of issues. There is regular feedback on articles written.
The intern is also appreciated for the well-written articles.
If you want to learn, respectwomen will give you an opportunity. Use it wisely.
