Fempowerment Women Achiever’s Award 2018: You decide the candidates!
In sync with Zee TV’s philosophy Aaj Likhenge Kal, Fempowerment Women Achiever’s Award 2018 is all set to salute women achievers from all spheres of life, inspiring millions of women across the country to take charge of their destiny, break out of selfimposed shackles and strive towards an extraordinary future.
Dr Subhash Chandra, Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha and Chairman, Essel Group and ZEE, aptly said, “My best wishes for Fempowerment Women Achievers Awards Success. I would like to humbly communicate that in this men’s world (still it is) women have to recognise their own strengths which they possess and they will empower themselves, without any external assistance.”
Fempowerment is an initiative of Kiren Shrivastav in association with ZEE TV, intending to strengthen, motivate and acknowledge women across the country. “It is a one-of-its- kind initiative, inviting the masses directly to nominate the most deserving women for the honours,” says Kiren.
Some of the renowned figures who have been closely associated with Fempowerment are Subhash Ghai, Ridham Desai (MD of Morgan Stanley India), Mrunalini Deshmukh, Nagesh Kukunoor, Javed Ahmed, Abha Singh, Shrikant Bhasi, Annurag Batra and Swanand Kirkire.
The previous Fempowerment awards have celebrated the glory of Priyanka Chopra, Shikha Sharma, Safeena Hussain, Shobha Kapoor, Dipika Pallikal, Ekta Kapoor, Saroj Khan, Chitra Ramakrishna, Zarina Mehta, Daksha Sheth, Aditi Mittal, Shanoo Sharma, Anisha Singh and many others.
However, lending a huge support to the noble cause of women empowerment are a few men who work consistently and proactively to bring about a change. Fempowerment is the only award that also felicitates men for helping empower women and has a special category of an award to one such deserving man, presented by women.
In 2016 Arunachalam Muruganantham was presented a special Fempowerment award for the invention of low-cost sanitary pad-making machine and innovating grassroots mechanisms for generating awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India.
So, if you know any woman who is a great achiever and can be a source of inspiration to millions — someone who has set an example through a commendable body of work, made a significant contribution to humanity, is a trend setter in society or has noteworthy accomplishments in the fields of entertainment, corporate, sports, education, arts, literature, social services, health and wellness, nominate them now for the Fempowerment WomD- en Achiever Awards 2018.
