Panel to study women welfare


The Union Government proposes to have a committee to evaluate and suggest measures to improve women's welfare, said Nirmala Sitharaman.

'Naari to Narayani' had always been the tradition of the country, she said. For this she quoted Swami Vivekananda: "There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly with one wing.''

She said it was the Government approach to go beyond just women-centric policies and instead build women-led movements. She said women were participating in public activities and this was best exemplified during the latest elections where women came out to vote in large numbers.
