The efforts of the central government made 'half the population of the country' more powerful

Delhi : In today's time, women, daughters, mothers, able partners and many other roles are playing with great skill and gentleness, but even today their role is ignored in many parts of the world. Due to this women have to bear the brunt of massive inequality, oppression, financial dependence and other social evils. For centuries, this bondage has been blocking women from achieving professional and personal heights. In such a situation, "International Women's Day" is celebrated for women empowerment all over the world to move women forward.
