This is an era of quantum leaps in development.
This is an era of ensuring and securing active participation of the Woman's Power in development.

women seems to be falling prey to the politics of Vote Bank.
Asian nations have had an influence of the Indian culture. Countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan,
Srilanka, India, Indonesia accepting women as the Head of their nation is quite natural. History is a
witness to it.

participation of the Woman Power in development.

Women's Empowerment - Various Initiatives - Gujarat Model

candidature in these elections and simply entrusted their women with the task of administration and
handed over the reins to women in their villages.
The link will highlight concrete and innovative steps undertaken by Gujarat.
So... we will meet soon.
Interact more often.
