“Women have fought stereotyping, fought gender-bias, fought societal pressure to earn their place under the sun. Today, women are leading the change in our country and making India grow progressively.

“For us to achieve parity in society, it is imperative that women continue to march forward. To me, all women are super achievers because they do so much every single day and mostly without support or platforms or access. They are the real heroes of our society and it will be our honour and endeavour to bring out as many stories of such incredible women who are changing their communities,” she added.
