What is Women Empowerment according to you?
Women deliver multiple roles effortlessly every day, and thus, they are considered the backbone of every society. Living in male-dominating societies, women play a wide range of roles, such as caring mothers, loving daughters, and capable colleagues.
Nonetheless, they’ve also stood as a neglected bunch of society in different parts of the world. In turn, it has resulted in women surviving the brunt of unevenness, financial trustworthiness, oppression, and distinct social evils.
The term women empowerment is all about authority, or the power embarked on women sharing indistinguishable rights. The term refers to the liberation of women from socio-economic restraints of reliance. In the age of feminism, a small portion of women in India are freed and can employ their free will and are permitted to carve out their lives the way they want. But there is a considerable division of the women in this nation who require optimistic support. In most Indian villages and semi-urban cities, women are still denied fundamental education and are never authorized to continue higher education despite amassing the understanding required.
To achieve this, the most important target should be-Equality, where no individual and no gender must be denied the opportunity to benefit from development and the equal rights and opportunities of women and girl children must be assured.
Message for the society:
Women do not feel safe because they are objectified, stared at, and abused in a different way, shape, or form. Sexism or chauvinism is one of those brutal things that need to be changed in the society because people must realize that women deserve to be treated equally. They must not be looked at like an object. Once sexism ends, the things that need to be changed in the society can be looked at in a better way.
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
I will focus on helping the community, through volunteering, donations, and sponsorships as per my capability.
We (Beauty Queens) can make a long-lasting difference in the lives of the people by encouraging the demotivated people specially the women that they can always do something if tried, in later ages also. They are not mere people who are born to serve a family or two only, but they can be of great meaning for the society even.
And being associated with LIONS CLUB, I have already prepared a platform to serve the society in future till the rest of my live and after becoming Queen, the activities that would be conducted by me will enhance and will have a different significance.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
Most people feel that the beauty contests are just a platform to showcase physical beauty. But in my opinion, these pageants are a lot more than just that! Contests like Mrs India International Queen can teach us some valuable lessons about life.
These pageants can transform the girls, women into confident, intelligent individuals who are all ready to face the world.
So, if you are looking to boost your confidence levels, developing a positive attitude, and improving your communication skills, and want to be a person who is willing to serve the society actively or passively, I reckon one must, at least once in their life, participate in a beauty pageant. So, I am here at Mrs India International Queen.
