Women’s Day celebration by District Legal Services Authority here was more meaningful with officials choosing to empower women through their right to vote.

While touching upon the rights and responsibilities of women, District Principal Judge, A. Muthusaratha, underlined that women should work with self-confidence. She said that women were making great achievements in all spheres of life.

On the occasion, revenue officials conducted a special programme to demonstrate how to cast votes using electronic voting machine.

“In initial years, women were denied the right to vote. This right has come to the women after a long struggle and hence women should make it their duty to cast their votes,” said Ms. Muthusaratha.

Several judicial officers were present on the occasion.
