Women doing this, women doing that. It’s a phrase we get to hear quite often these days. From owning giant companies to excelling in sports, why can’t women understand that all such vocations are more suitable for men. Why do they think that being courageous and following their dreams are more important than getting married and taking care of the household.
Let’s have a look at some such Indian women who broke societal norms and think that they can rule the world.
