Women Transforming India

Women Transforming India was launched with the aim to celebrate the indomitable spirit of women working to empower communities and transform India. The award invites stories of exceptional women entrepreneurs, who are breaking the glass ceiling and challenging stereotypes through businesses, enterprises and initiatives that provide innovative solutions to address some key development challenges and to impacted lives of communities. Women Transforming India builds on the Government of India’s commitment to advance gender equality. The many interventions, including Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Sukanya Samridhi Yojana and Janani Suraksha Yojana are a testimony to the government’s resolve to empower girls and women across India, and tackle discrimination.
