" I am really excited to be part of Millennium Fellowship. I have strongly believed that women are strong enough to fight their battles alone , they only require that push and support that over the years the society has brushed off. Its high time we understand equality is a vast term and every aspect of it has to be explored and all the underlying presumptions need to be justified. This society needs to fight against the small injustice happening against women to ultimately win the faith of every single women that they will be served with justice. I am very determined to use this platform to reach more women and to help them raise valid questions and fight against their injustice. "
