There is no doubt in it that women are making this world a better place. They’ve made their presence felt in every field. On the occasion International Women Day, here we are sharing inspirational and amazing stories of some women who will make every woman proud.
Laxmi Aggarwal: At the age of 15, her world shattered when a 32-year old man threw acid on her because she had rejected his advances. A lot has changed after that. She is now a social activist who works for the cause of acid-attack victims. She has won multiple awards for her work. She also hosts a TV show. Laxmi is courage personified. She has proved that nothing is stronger than a woman.
Arunima Sinha: This brave-heart is the first Indian amputee to climb the Mount Everest. She used to be a volleyball player but then a tragedy hit her. She was thrown off a moving train by thugs on refusing to give them her chain and belongings. She lost her legs in the incident but not her courage. Then she decided that she will climb Mount Everest, and with hard work and dedication she achieved it. She’s been awarded Padma Shri.
Kalpana Saroj: She got married at an age of 12, and was physically abused by her husband. She decided to end her life but life gave her another chance. She started a small tailoring business and today she is CEO of Kamani Tubes. She proved that a strong-willed woman can achieve anything with her determination.
Irom Chanu Sharmila: She is also known as ‘Iron Lady of Manipur’, she’s on a hunger strike against the innocent killing of civilians by army men since 2000. Truly an iron lady!
These are just few examples of women who are making this world a better place by their efforts, strong will, and hard work. Certainly these are the inspiration for all of us. We hope each and every woman in the country learn something from them and empower themselves.
