She encouraged all the women to educate the girl children for she believes that if one girl child is educated the whole family is educated. Director explained as Pope Francis has aptly said, “Women face a variety of challenges and difficulties in various parts of the world; at times they still experience discrimination in the workplace; they are often forced to choose between work and family; they frequently suffer violence in their lives as fiancées, wives, mothers, sisters and grandmothers. In poor and developing countries, women bear the heaviest burdens: it is they who travel many miles in search of water, who too often die in childbirth, who are kidnapped for sexual exploitation or forced into marriages at a young age or against their will. At times they are even denied the right to life simply for being female”.

Mrs. Adhyimuni Veralakshmi, Zella Panchyath President Raichur was the chief guest of the celebration said “There is nothing more complex or special in this world than a woman. She is full of mystery and wonder that makes her special and one of a kind.
