Women face unique challenges in their quest to make an impact, and there is a dire need to focus on inclusion of women in all walks of life, not just on the basis of gender equality but to command respect and recognition as well. And yet inspite of cultural & systemic hurdles, women across the globe continue to challenge and continue to rise through impact, by being focused, firm & committed, overriding old paradigms & creating better, and a more inclusive future for themselves. Every woman needs to be applauded and encouraged as she is a superwoman in her own little way.
Al-Ameen celebrated International Women’s Day on 9th March 2022. Ms. Sowmya Reddy, the only woman MLA in Bangalore and the daughter of the former Home Minister, Sri Ramalinga Reddy, was invited as the Chief Guest.
