In our everyday experiences, we are blessed with beautiful women who grace our lives in the form of mothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters, grandmothers, aunties, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, etc. They step into our lives and leave an indelible mark.

True, they make our lives beautiful but they face difficult realities in the family, social, political, cultural, economic aspects of their lives. Despite all that, many have stood out to make their voice heard and taken up leadership roles at different levels in the society.
