On the occasion of the Women’s Day on Thursday, several inspiring stories of courageous women were circulated on social media following prime minister Narendra Modi’s social media campaign in which he urged people to tweet and write about women who inspired them.

The campaign generated a lot of discussion and traction on social media. People shared photos and wrote about the women who inspired them.

 

 

 

Even cabinet ministers participated in the campaign and tweeted about various unsung women. PM posted about Kunwar Bai of Chhattisgarh, who sold her goats to build toilets.

Apart from that, the PM shared two videos about his vision for women-centric development and about key measures the government took towards empowering women. The video encapsulated the vision of the government of making self-reliant and equal partners in the country’s progress. He also shared three posters that encapsulated the success of women empowerment measures of his government.

Meanwhile, Modi travelled to Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan to launch the POSHAN Abhiyaan, to provide proper nutrition facilities to women and children. The Beti Bachao Beti Padhao movement was expanded from 161 to 640 districts.
