Nirmala Sitharaman Acknowledges Women Taxpayers By Using Feminine Pronouns While Presenting 2022 Union Budget. Twitter And We Love It!

February 01, 2022 | by Janvi Manchanda

For the last few days, women across the country have been waiting to hear the Finance Minister of India, Nirmala Sitharaman present the Union Budget of the year 2022-23. More so, since we all were expecting the 2022 Union Budget to uplift women and empower them. On Tuesday, February 1, 2022, the Finance Minister presented the budget in the Parliament of India and it may not have lived up to the expectations of the middle-class person but it looks like it lived up to the expectations of the Indian women.

Soon after Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the 2022 Union Budget, netizens took to Twitter to hail her for highlighting the contribution of the female taxpayers in the country by using the pronouns ‘she’ and ‘her’ instead of the usual ‘he’ and ‘him’. While speaking about the proposal to revise guidelines to file tax returns, Nirmala Sitharaman used feminine pronouns. This subtle (not that subtle) attempt at recognising the female workforce and taxpayers by the Finance Minister of India has really won our hearts. And we’re not the only ones. It seems like people across the country are impressed by this move. Edelweiss Asset CEO Radikha Gupta took to Twitter to point out the same and praised Nirmala Sitharaman for being inclusive.

Take a look at this post.

Several other users also replied to the Edelweiss Asset CEO’s tweet and applauded Nirmala Sitharaman for using feminine pronouns. Check it out.

This may not seem like a big deal to many but the usage of ‘she’ and ‘her’ have brought attention towards the female taxpayer across the nations. More so, because for a long time income tax and return filing has been seen as a male-dominated industry since men happen to be the primary breadwinners in most Indian households. Women, on the other hand, usually engage in small-time businesses or part-time jobs or housewives. While there are women who work full-time too, our gender is not a major contributor to tax. Even though women are believed to be bad with numbers and finances, the fact is that women file their returns too even if they don’t earn much.

We’re so glad that Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman not only honoured our contribution but also stressed the importance of women empowerment by using the pronouns ‘she’ and ‘her’. Yes, she does file her taxes irrespective of her income and she takes control of her finances too.
