Influential women personalities

               8th march,  international womens day when thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements... But i do not believe in the concept of the "Day celebration".The spirit of the womanhood has to be celebrated on all the days not on particular day alone...The multi-faced roles that are played by women must be celebrated on all the days!!

    Women's Day is a day to commemorate women's struggle for change, to celebrate the progress, which has been made towards improvement of quality of life of women. It is the day for reaffirming our commitment to the work towards the liberation of women. .

   The new millennium has witnessed a significant change and attitudinal shift in both women's and society's thoughts about women's equality and emancipation. Many from a younger generation feel that 'all the battles have been won for women' while many feminists know only too well the longevity and ingrained complexity of patriarchy. With more women in the boardroom, greater equality in legislative rights, and an increased critical mass of women's visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, one could think that women have gained true equality. The unfortunate fact is that are still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women's education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men.



here are few women personalities whom i have always looked up to:.


 an Indian novelist was the first Indian woman to have won Britain's prestigious Booker Prize in 1997. Her writings on various social, environmental and political issues have been a subject of major controversy in India.
