UN Women focuses on economic opportunities and political participation in India

UN Women Michelle Bachelet on her first official visit to India draws attention to efforts to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment, including at the grassroots level.
“Unlocking women’s potential and increasing their political and economic participation and leadership is critical from the district offices to the corporate boardroom, from the Lok Sabha to the village panchayats. This will send a clear message to the world that India is leading the way for democracy, for women and for equality, ” said Bachelet.
