Join ‘The News9 Plus Show’ in celebrating the 75th Republic Day with a special focus on the incredible display of Naari Shakti, or women power, in this year's historic parade, as tri-services woman marching contingents, 100 women artists playing Indian musical instruments, and a tri-service marching contingent of Agniveers with 144 women take centre stage. Notably, the parade features the first-ever All-Women Contingent of Armed Forces Medical Services and marching contingents of the Central Armed Police Forces showcasing #NariShakti. Beyond the symbolic gestures of Republic Day, the discourse delves into the critical issue of women's representation in political and public spaces. Despite the strides made, women's share in Parliament remains at a meagre 15.2%. Why do women in India continue to be underrepresented? In this special episode of The News9 Plus Show, we bring together a distinguished panel of accomplished women who have excelled in their respective fields. Advocate Rebecca John, Screenwriter Advaita Kala, author, and entrepreneur Archana Garodia Gupta, along with Squadron Leader Dipti Kala, join Editor News9 Plus Sandeep Unnithan and Geeta Datta for an engaging and insightful dialogue on the challenges and opportunities for women in the Republic. Don't miss this empowering conversation that aims to inspire change and foster inclusivity.
