Challenges Faced by Women in Politics:

Women in politics encounter obstacles like patriarchal mindsets, societal stereotypes, and limited access to resources. Double standards often subject them to harsh scrutiny and judgment. Balancing political duties with family responsibilities poses significant challenges, forcing women to make tough choices. Despite these hurdles, women persist in advocating for gender equality and empowering future leaders.

Challenges Faced by Women IAS Officers:

Political interference, frequent transfers, and stress characterize the challenges for women in the Indian Administrative Service (IAS). Limited recognition and gender bias hinder their career growth. Striving to maintain ethical standards amidst pressure remains a constant struggle. Despite these obstacles, women IAS officers persevere to contribute meaningfully to governance and development.

Challenges Faced by Women IPS Officers:

Women in the Indian Police Service (IPS) confront gender bias, limited networking opportunities, and a demanding work-life balance. The lack of support systems and infrastructure exacerbates their challenges. Despite these obstacles, women IPS officers excel in high-pressure situations, breaking barriers and inspiring future generations.

Chief Mentor NS Reddy emphasized the importance of empowering women to overcome these challenges, stating, “Women play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our nation, and it is imperative that we create an inclusive environment that enables their full participation and leadership.”
