on Thursday,19th September 2013 at 6pm,
Banquet Hall, The Ashok Hotel
Women in India have a long way to go to achieve meaningful empowerment but a beginning has certainly been made. The growth of political parties led by women is a hopeful sign and the fact that the number is only growing is also important. Social changes, increasing access to education and health, growing awareness among women to fight for their due place and, above all, the determination to achieve empowerment, provide a fillip to womens dreams. Pandora's daughters analyses the strategies deployed by eight prominent women leaders in modern India to achieve high levels of power in a male dominated world of Indian politics. The list includes Sonia Gandhi, Mayawati, Mamata Banerjee, Jayalalithaa, Sheila Dixit, Pratibha Patil, Sushma Swaraj, and Mehbooba Mufti whose personalities, tactics, manoeuvres, strengths and disadvantages are assessed in the book.
The key speakers are:
Mrs Sheila Dixit, Mrs Sushma Swaraj, Mr Digvijaya Singh & Mr Rajdeep Sardesai
