It is heartening to see the progress that has been made towards gender equality in education in India. However, there is still a long way to go before we can truly achieve equal opportunities for women in all areas of society. We hope that this report will serve as a call to action for other states and governments to prioritize women’s education and create more opportunities for female students.

On this International Women’s Day, we celebrate the achievements of women in India and around the world. We must continue to work together towards a future where women have equal access to education, opportunities, and success.
