India is celebrating Gandhi Jayanti today with #150YearsOfGandhiji. Joining the rejoice ahead, we would like to throw some light on the thoughts of the father of our nation on Women Empowerment.
Let's not forget that women actively participated in mass movements led by him when the nation was struggling for freedom. Gandhiji defined women as a form of 'ahimsa' which simply means love and infinite suffering capacity.
“The women in India tore down the purdah and came forward to work for the nation. They saw the country demanded something more than their looking after their homes. They manufactured contraband salt; they picketed foreign cloth shops; etc. They marched to jails and they sustained lathi blows as few men did.” - Mahatma Gandhi
