Brutality on women, especially in India, knows no bounds. Official stats state a woman is assaulted every 20 minutes in India. There can be a change to this scenario. A revolution has already started with the Nirbhaya case back in 2012. While some are choosing protests, candle light marches, editorials, even social media, to raise the need for the safety of women – a change of outlook in the society that puts women and men on an equal platform as well as laws to support the same – Sangeeta S Bahl chooses to climb to raise this awareness for women safety.
As an accomplished woman entrepreneur with strong ties to the community, and her own NGO – Impact Women Power Association – Sangeeta strives to highlight the plight of women in India from all wakes of life, and bring more awareness to bring about a positive change in the society.
Her NGO – Impact Women Power Association – is currently focused on women in her home-state – Jammu & Kashmir – and she hopes to empower the local women by bringing them out of their comfort zones and making them more independent. To get started on this mission, she has already organised treks for women in J&K as well as Himachal Pradesh. Her plans to empower women also include making the women employable via skills training. Having faced hardships like no other, Sangeeta is hugely aware of how much impact her organisation can make on these women, as well as the women all over the country. Hence her resolve to climb for such a cause.
