Countries and political systems have tried to strike a balance between the genders and the result is March 8, a day set aside for women specifically.

I don’t want to be different, I just try to be me and I think all women should do the same.

Everybody is special in their own, unique way.

I also believe that times are changing and more avenues are opening for women, and we should be out there to make the most of it.

Being a woman in itself is a celebration and everyday of my life I see that happening.

I felt so proud to be the only woman riding at the North-East Riders Meet in 2011 and I don’t think being a biker is that difficult a task.

- Sheetal Iyer, biker

Women have always been great multitaskers, who strive to create a perfect balance between family and profession.

Celebrating womanhood for me is really special.

Urban women these days feel very empowered and the state of women in the rural set up is also gradually improving.

We nowhere want to rule out men, but all we want is a nice and equal relationship where both respect each other - Yamini Reddy, classical dancer

In recent times, women have been scaling great heights.

Women’s cricket has much more awareness compared to what it was a decade ago.

People appreciate our efforts, which is really inspiring.

What’s more rewarding than getting a compliment from people of the cricketing world, who tell me that I am as good as most guys playing in the men’s cricket team? I completely believe that women should be more independent and parents should impart this to their daughters - Mithali Raj, cricketer

Defining womanhood isn’t easy but I can say that we are imperfectly indispensable.

My biggest inspiration comes from some of the most sensible women who use their experience to guide and nurture everyone around.

Being a woman is about the ability to use your instincts and think with your soul.

It defines my work as much as being a person with an independent mind should - Sucharita Rao, photographer

Women should step up and go out there and do something with their lives.

I don’t know why we need to take one day out to celebrate women.

By doing that, we’re automatically segregating ourselves from the rest.

Is there a man’s day? Why should there be a women’s day? I blame women; I don’t blame men; for the differentiation.

You don’t find them doing that much in India - Do you find women waitresses here? - Lakshmi Manchu, actor and producer

According to me women these days have ventured into almost every field and have been achieving a lot.

Like kabbadi was always considered as a male dominated game.

But, now we have won the medal and proved that women are capable of everything.

We are being appreciated a lot and people now consider us capable of bringing laurels to the country.

And, I think Women's Day is a nice way of celebrating us - Mamta Poojary, Captain,Indian Women’s Kabaddi team
