International Women’s Day is celebrated worldwide on March 8 annually to acknowledge the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women across the globe. It is celebrated to feel empowered while standing up for the Education, equality, justice, rights and freedom for ladies.
As Swami Vivekananda said “A bird with only one wing can never fly. ” Doesn’t this statement be exemplified by India. With the whole world celebrating INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY with great magnificence and show it becomes extremely necessary to just get a flashback to all that women have been through from 16th century to the 21st.
Strangely, whenever the term developing country comes, the term women empowerment somewhere follows, then women education comes handy with it. The simple question arises why do we need educated women for countries development? And the simple answer would be the bird’s phase. A country can never be developed if only half of its citizens i.e. men here are educated, a company too needs to train all of its employees to be efficient. An educated woman brings changes from home which leads to revolutions in the country.
IIM Bangalore started Women Start-up Programme, customized online and classroom initiative designed to enthuse aspiring female entrepreneurs-in-the-making across the country. The programme seeks to facilitate the growth of women entrepreneurs by providing in-depth training to foster and augment managerial and entrepreneurial skills through mentoring, incubation, and financial support.
