If anybody asks me whom do you consider as a superhero in a real life? Well, then my answer would be a “Woman”. I’m not just talking about myself or ladies closely related to me. Here, I’m considering every woman who is right out there taking care of their families, kids, and themselves.
During her entire life, a woman needs to make a lot of adjustments and compromises. Still, she never breaks and helps every person related to her wholeheartedly. If we look back, there was a time when women were not allowed to fulfill their dreams, though the traces are still found in our society.But, now if you look at the current stats, you will find that women are doing a great job in every sector. For instance, Manushi Chhillar who won the Miss World pageant and Mary Kom the champion boxer of India. And as we are going to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March 2018, here we have listed some powerful and amazing women who have made India proud at the global level.
1. Indian Women’s Cricket Team
It was a proud moment for India when Indian Women’s Cricket made it to the ICC Women’s World Cup finale. Though they didn’t win the title still, they managed to win millions of hearts across the country.
2. Mary Kom
Mary Kom, the winner of AIBA World Boxing Championship, secured her 5th Gold medal at Asian Women’s Boxing Championship. After this, she has now become the only woman boxer who has won medals in every consecutive championship. She became more popular when her biopic movie ‘Mary Kom’ hit the silver screen.
