March 8 marks International Women's Day, the day to celebrate, recognise and honour the contribution of women in creating a progressive society and acquiring gender equality and empowerment. While its origins date back more than a century, its emphasis on women's opportunities and esteem remain as relevant as ever.
Today, women are growing and excelling in every field. Whether in education, politics or sport, women are making a significant impact. There are many examples of women becoming strong and effective leaders, guiding nations and what not. Although gender inequality, rights violations, and everything else still exists, what has changed is the way women are standing up for their rights and equality, bravely!
MDPH has consistently put women's empowerment and upliftment at the forefront of its mission. We believe in making women independent and strong. As Mr. Amartya Sen once stated, "Empowering women is key to building a future we want", and by putting our beliefs into practice, we are creating the future we want. MDPH takes pride in sharing that 80% of our workforce is female. Even the inspiration behind MDPH came from a woman- Mrs. Mohini Agrawal. And with the perfumery expertise and knowledge of Mrs. Amita Agrawal, this legacy continues.
The women at MDPH are an excellent example of success against the orthodox and stereotypical view points of society that hinder their ability to work and be independent. There are thousands of such inspiring stories and women around us who are paving their way to success. As we celebrate women's day, let's take time to appreciate and support their journeys and efforts. For women, let's create a world that is kinder, happier, and more supportive. Happy Women's Day!
