When women are empowered, a society with stability is assured
~ Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
From Sarojini Naidu to the visionary Sushma Swaraj, the epoch names etched in India’s tale of rise from ashes, speaks volumes of how women have demonstrated their imperia. With the sobriquet, ‘Nightingale of India’, Sarojini Naidu, is known for becoming the first woman governor of a state. She was the second woman to become the president of the Indian National Congress, after Annie Besant, also, the first Indian woman to achieve this facet. Naidu played one of the most important roles in the Civil Disobedience struggle for which she was jailed. However, her contribution was not confined to politics only and she was a well-renowned poetess. Bhikaji Cama was another name in the Indian Freedom Struggle. Tales of bravery and leadership have been portrayed by many others like Vijay Lakshmi Pandit, Aruna Asaf Ali, Kalpana Dutta, Raj Kumari Gupta, Kamala Kaul Nehru, Begum Hazrat Ali, etc.
After these women contributed their share, the torch was passed on to the industrial generation of women to continue India’s growth trajectory.
