About Bad Betis

Bad Beti. Bad Daughter. As opposed to the “Good Daughter” that we as South Asian women (and perhaps most women in the world) are trained to be.


Someone who doesn’t follow the rules.

Someone who has a strong voice.

Someone who isn’t afraid to go against the grain.

I grew up in a culture which taught me that good daughters are self-denying, self-sacrificing paragons who live their lives to please those around them: their parents, their brothers, their uncles and aunties, their neighbours and eventually their husbands, their in-laws and their sons.

I was born a bad daughter. I’ve been called a Bad Beti my entire life.

I wear my bad daughter crown proudly. Because I want to have a voice, a loud and proud voice. And I want a life where I can have a full, fulling life and live by my own rules.

Join my bad Beti Crew

I’m creating an army of bad daughters like me. Daughters who are not afraid to challenge patriarchy, daughters who choose the lives they want, daughters who decide exactly what kind of “Betis” they want to be.

I’ve come a long way from being told I didn’t have a voice, to becoming the voice for South Asian feminism.

I’m proud to be a BAD BETI, leading a battalion of Bad Betis.

So, are you ready to join the Bad Beti crew?
