Founder speaks –
“The event is on women empowerment. This is to look beyond the norms of the society that defines women. It was when I visited one acid attack victim, her story left me in tears. She told me her desire to look beautiful. A single spot or pimple would make her worry but fate had other plans for her and scars became a permanent companion to her”, says Anita Dutta.
The event followed an award ceremony. Padma Sri Subhashini Mistry, Pratima Poddar, Ananya Chandra Roy, Swati Dutta, Ajay Mistry received awards for their contribution to society as a whole.
Dutta further says, “We are celebrating women empowerment. And being an empowered woman I feel that I must help other women towards development. So, I want to give more power to them because empowered women can only bring positive change. But at the same time, we are not feminist hence we acknowledge the men who are contributing to society and also helping in the women empowerment.”
Musical performances followed the night. The program marks the beginning of a journey to look beyond her physical attributes.
