Females these days are playing a bigger role in business and politics. There are several countries where women are working as Heads of State. In my country also, a lot of females are venturing into politics.
A popular Indian female leader is Menaka Gandhi. I first came to know about her while watching news on TV. She was giving an interview on animal rights and environment protection. That’s how I came to know that she was an animal rights activist, environmentalist and a politician as well. She has been a Minister in the Indian government heading Ministry of Environment as well as Ministry of Women & Child Development.
She became quite famous when she started an organization ‘People for Animals’. It is the largest organization for animal rights and welfare in India. Her popularity rose further when she started propagating, through her public interviews to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle comprising of vegan diet. She also urged people to protect the environment through lifestyle changes.
I too was impressed by the ideas she advocated through her interviews and the books she wrote. In fact, I turned into a vegetarian after being inspired by her. Another thing that I like about her is that she takes up causes related to uplifting women in our society. She introduced several policies in favour of women while she was serving as a Minister.
She is a true role model for today’s generation and I admire her for her intelligence, courage and perseverance to bring about a radical change in the Indian society.
