And in another part of the city, a meet was by All India Senior Citizen’s Confederation at Nerul to celebrate Women’s Day. Celebrations for Womens’ Day had already started earlier in the week. One such celebration was a meet held by the All India Senior Citizen Confederation at Nerul. Present during the event as the chief guest was NCP corporator Netra Shirke. A huge crowd of senior citizens came together for the meet. Many senior women came forward and spoke about their experiences and women empowerment. All the senior citizens present were felicitated by Netra Shirke and were given flowers as token. We spoke with the President of All India Senior Citizen’s Confederation, Dr. S P Kinjawadekar about the event. Women, be it at home or in office face many challenges for being a woman. We caught up with NCP corporator Netra Shirke during the event to know the kind of challenges she faced during her journey in politics. When we quested if it was difficult for a woman to attain an important post in a man’s world, she said that although to some extent there was equality between the two gender, discrimination was still felt especially at times of promotion.
