What is the most important aspect of being an empowered woman?
The most important aspect of being an empowered woman is being able to speak up against injustice and being able to stand for other’s rights as well.

What would you change about our society so that more women can lead empowered lives?
I would change the mindset of our society which believes that women are better off at home rather than working outside. Work gives women confidence and the ability to speak up.
