BENGALURU: “Despite the constitutional reservations for women in the political sphere, only 11% of women represent politics in the constituency. There are 28 constituencies in Bengaluru, and I am the only woman legislator,” said Jayanagar MLA Soumya Reddy. She was speaking at the Mahila Shakthi Deshada Shakthi programme held at Krishnaraja Mandir. Youth Congress social media national in charge Raksha Ramaiah, Dr. Nikitha Sridhar, Shruthi Ravi and J B Mather were present. 

Shruthi Ravi said, “If women become entrepreneurs, they can easily meet their life needs, education, learning, sports and other goals.”  Padma Shimoga said that in almost all fields, women are objectified and there is a lack of respect for their caliber and intelligence. 

“For this very reason, a movement like #MeToo is raging everywhere, so that all the women come forward, tell their stories fearlessly. The power of women becomes the power of the country, and women need to be tough and outspoken to achieve this goal,” she said.

Pallavi Idoor, a writer, said, “Elders in the family should develop this sense of consciousness and protest any prejudice,” she said. Bodybuilder Mamata Sanath Kumar said that there should be better facilities for girls in sports sector.
