Misogyny, harassment, depression! Indian Women’s Fours team’s arduous journey to CWG gold

The journey to glory for the women's fours team of Lovely Choubey, Pinki, Nayanmoni Saikia, and Rupa Rani Tirkey was riddled with hurdles.

4 middle-aged women gave India a new dream when they won Gold in an otherwise unknown sport, Lawn Bowls. The journey to glory though for the women's fours team of Lovely Choubey, Pinki, Nayanmoni Saikia, and Rupa Rani Tirkey was riddled with hurdles.

While speaking to Jyotsna Mohan on Table Talk with Jo, the women who brought home India's first-ever Gold medal in Lawn Bowls, broke down as they spoke about the struggle and harassment they went through.

Rupa Rani Tirkey while talking to the host revealed that the team was very depressed and that if they hadn't won the medal at the Commonwealth Games, it probably would have been curtains for their careers.

Lovely further spoke about the misogyny that the four women had to face. With tears in her eyes, she said that the team was told that they were only selected because of their looks and went on to question, 'did we win the medal because of our looks?'

The four women at Birmingham 2022 achieved a rare feat for the nation after defeating the dominant South African women's fours team in the finals of the Lawn Bowls Fours event.
