Why celebrate the magnificence of women on one day when being a woman in itself is a celebration? Yes, a lot of us may have grouses, may feel we are not given our due, may find the world unfair, but hey! there are many amongst us who have made the most of what life had to offer. At Power Sutra, we would like to dedicate the whole of March to these women who have given us direction, been the role models we deserve and paved the paths for many of us. At our core, and in our own way, we are also trying to get women what they need and deserve. We have all heard about the classic case of women’s jeans pocket being smaller because it is supposed to have no utility. This is exactly the mindset Power Sutra has set out to change. And the women we list out below resonate with us at a very principal level.
