What does empowerment and gender equality mean to you?
Is it about being able to stand your ground at home or work? Or is it also having the freedom to pursue one’s career and lifestyle choices, with no societal prejudice? What about equal opportunities in the workplace and the autonomy to innovate, ideate, and bring equal contributions to the table?

Watch BYJUites share their take on breaking biases, at home and work:
