Reuters- Indian ace tennis star, Sania Mirza, on Wednesday (June 27) recalled the trials and tribulations she faced as a sportswoman while speaking at the launch of UN Women’s anthem in India’s entertainment capital, Mumbai.
Mirza was speaking at the launch of #Mujhehakhai (I have the right) a song aimed at inspiring and promoting women empowerment by the United Nations. She said irrespective of what gender a person is they need to be provided with equal opportunities.
Mirza shared the stage with 2016 sub-junior World kickboxing champion, Tajamul Islam, Bollywood playback singer, Neeti Mohan and other women achievers. Bollywood playback singer Arko Mukherjee, who sang the song with Mohan, also shared the stage with the ladies. The video for the song features many noteworthy women achievers from varied sections of society, including Mirza, Bollywood actors Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kirti Sanon, singers Asha Bhosle among several others.
The Indian government has launched a lot of schemes for women in the country, including multiple scholarships and provides a special focus on girl children and women. More women are getting access to education and there have also been significant improvements in other areas that were earlier male-dominated. Although Indian woman has achieved a lot over the years, average Indian women still have a long way to go in terms of overcoming prevalent social evils like dowry, domestic violence, eve teasing, and general preference to male child among parents.
