I’ve been a staunch advocate of women’s empowerment, and I’ve worked hard throughout my career to advance the cause. It is heartening to see that gender equality is really becoming more of a reality. There is still much more to be done, and I’m confident that, by working together, we can empower women worldwide.

It’s a time to do research, learn about prominent figures and events in history, and is also a time to make impactful changes for the better consequentially.

During this holiday, women all over the world share resources, run seminars, and help women think about the world around them and how solutions can be made for the ever presiding problems that women face.
