When you think of powerful and influential women, names like Indira Gandhi, Hillary Clinton and Margaret Thatcher come to mind. If you were to enlist the names of brave and intelligent women, you will probably add Malala Yousafzai, Kalpana Chawla and Kiran Bedi to your list. But how many of us will associate such epithets with our mothers, sisters, daughters or girlfriends?
You don’t have to be a public figure to be recognised as a woman of substance. Each and every woman has it in her to be exceptional; all that is required is the right kind of opportunity. With the re-launch of HANDS ON TIME on 8th March, we are joining in not only to commemorate International Women’s Day, but also to celebrate womanhood.
Women have been conditioned to think that surviving without rights is the only way of life. True empowerment begins with the right to chose – be it education, career, healthcare or life partner. The International Women’s Day was initiated with the aim to encourage women’s empowerment and equal rights for women. These two burning issues still continue to be on the top of women’s welfare agenda. Once women are empowered to make their own decisions, they will realise their abilities, hone their skills and fulfill their dreams. And the act of empowering women should start with telling our little girls that they can do what they want and be what they wish to be.
We, at HOT, believe that the one thing every woman should wear is ‘confidence’. On this Women’s Day, select from our repertoire of women’s delights to gift to the most inspiring woman in your life. Let this gift be your way of telling the special lady that ‘she’ is the hero of her own life.
