The society says that it wants an intelligent, strong and truly independent woman who wants others rather than needing them, who is inspiring and a source of motivation; and yet all that it provides for is to belittle the stature of women. But even through these shackles of society women emerge stronger than ever. With their best foot forward, they get on to make themselves proud on the personal as well as the professional front.
