This advances the Government of India’s commitment to ensure Gender Parity in India, with special focus on women’s economic empowerment.

Category 1. Short video and photo contest on Women Breaking Gender Stereotypes: This can be a homemade video shot on the mobile phone. Both photos and videos are to be accompanied with a short caption (not over 50 words) encapsulating the story of the woman.
Category 2. Written entries of women in the workforce, across sectors, irrespective of their educational qualifications. We encourage stories of women working in non-traditional occupations and women who are working to empower other women, their neighborhoods/society in anyway. (Stories should not exceed 500 words.)
Participants are invited to upload entries directly on the MyGov platform.
