Empowerment of women is an urgent concern, not only in India, but all over the world. Men and women are like tow wings of a bird. When one wing is disempowered, the bird flies around in circles and cannot progress forward.

It can only be a woman who can help India's women-in fact the whole country.

Go women go! Make a great show for your gender! Women have been trampled and oppressed for far, far too long.

There is widespread movement in India for the protection of women and is getting national support and has several leaders in positions of authority. and government. Indian women are far more fortunate than their sisters in Islamic countries.

With due respect to you All who have left comments. We have lived in India and have seen Firsthand what Indian girls and women endure - it is horrendous when you place your garbage in a wheelie bin and three little heads pop up. A Seven Year old trying to protect her five and three year old sisters from starvation and sexual abuse on the streets, we scooped them up complete with fleas and lice and tried to find somewhere safe for them - we were told everywhere "Cha they are girls, put them back where they belong". It is great to hear "power to your elbow" but what you are all missing is the true extent of suffering of girls and women in India, even when they are married off, if their dowry is not sufficient they are beaten, abused and murdered. PLEASE Before you leave your comments look more deeply into the outrages against Women and Girls in India and make an informed comment. I do not want to offend, we have had the advantage of global travel - adored India but had to leave the house we had built purely because of Women and Animal Rights. It is Truly Shocking. Kavita Krishnan has an upward struggle and I for one am completely behind her.
