Though half a century has passed since women first forced open the boardroom doors, it is indeed disappointing to see gender stereotypes hampering the recruitment, promotions, and succession process for women in the corporate world.

From demanding electoral reservation in the Parliament to assisting victims of sexual violence on the streets and homes, the women’s leadership has played a significant role in increasing women’s visibility, voice as well as validity of their economic participation.

I hope this book will draw more women into active leadership roles at all levels of the society.
Anjali Hazarika’s book is a meaningful effort in sensitizing all stakeholders to sit up and take notice of the lacunae in achieving gender neutrality at workplaces. A book like this if read by all members of the civil society could start a revolution. Women’s role in the growth of organizations has largely been unheralded and I think it’s about time that we acknowledge and embrace the idea of women empowerment in all walks of life.
