Happy International Women’s Day! Every one of you knows the other side where women are mistreated, not respected, looked upon as slaves, are objectified, and the list is endless. Though society has infinite reasons to not respect women or not treat them equal to men but these haven't affected women’s approach to tackle the obstacles and stand firm in this patriarchal society.

Today in some corners of the world the perspectives are shaping in good ways as women themselves have taken their nations, to higher levels despite male dominance. India is one such example which is developing today and not to ignore that equally women have taken it to global level too. The above examples are the inspiration.
