Reaffirm commitment to gender equality and true empowerment of women: President Mukherjee on IWD
Extending warm greetings and best wishes to women in India and in all parts of the world on the occasion of International Women's Day, President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee urged people 'to reaffirm their commitment to gender equality and the true empowerment of women'.

The President, in his message said that Indian women with their incomparable compassion, tolerance and hard work had made an invaluable contribution to the development and progress of our country.

He added, "Government of India has introduced and implemented historic legislations and far sighted programmes for their empowerment and equal participation in nation building. 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' is an important initiative to prevent female foeticide and provide educational opportunities for female children in India."

"On this day, I call upon the people of India to reaffirm their commitment to gender equality and the true empowerment of women. Let us rededicate our efforts to give them all the support they need to develop to their full potential, realise their aspirations and enjoy the safety, dignity and unfettered equality that is their sacred right," Mukherjee urged.
