This is our way of showing concern and compassion in response to the increasing levels of violence and degradation of the standing of women in India today. We recognize that our efforts are a drop in the bucket. But we believe that every drop counts.
Our nieces, daughters and granddaughters are certain to ask what we did to improve the status of women in India. We will look at them in the eye and tell them what we did at MYRA. We can point to ratio of women participants in MYRA programs and faculty, the staff, and the Women Achievers Hall of Fame, its research output, programs and outreach work.
Come, join in MYRA's effort to promote gender equality. As James Brown sang "It's a man's world but it would be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl."
As part of WAH, Mrs. Rashmi Bansal, writer, entrepreneur and a youth expert was inducted to the WAH! by Mrs. Indrakshi Devi, 4th daughter of His Highness late Jayachamarajendra Wadiyar, Maharaja of Mysore.
