Women should face challenges in their personal and professional worlds with the utmost courage and confidence in order to reach their goals in life, said Ashwini Angadi, winner of the United Nations Garden Brown Youth Achiever award.
Speaking at a felicitation programme organised by the Basava Kendra Shri Murughamath here on Wednesday, she lamented the fact that women in India were living in pathetic conditions owing to a lack of awareness about their rights and facilities provided by the government. “Women can achieve anything if given proper guidance and awareness about their rights and duties,” she added.
Women should derive inspiration from Malala Yousafzai, who decided to continue her struggle even after terrorists attacked her. The programmes introduced by the math to bring equality in society would also play a crucial role in making women aware of their rights, she added.
Presiding over the function, Shivamurthy Murugha Sharana said one could reach his or her goals in life by working dedicatedly. “Students, especially girls, should follow the example set by Ms. Angadi,” he added.
Murughamath director G.N. Mallikarjunappa was present.
Students should follow Ashwini Angadi’s example, says seer
