Kajol releases ‘Women Of Pure Wonder’

ww   Dec 6, 2013, Kajol was recently in the capital to release Women Of Pure Wonder, a book by the Vodafone Foundation, along with Vittorio Colao, CEO, Vodafone Group Plc. The book chronicles the struggle, survival and success of 60 extraordinary women. Blending an engaging mix of some well-known and some unheard tales, this book narrates the extraordinary deeds of real women who have courageously braved all social, economic, and familial odds to find success in their chosen field of work. Colao said, “At Vodafone, we firmly believe that what is good for the society is also good for business. This book is unique as it takes the story of these 60 women to inspire a much larger audience. This is but a small token of our admiration and respect for the ladies who have braved all odds to exemplify what every woman is capable of.” Marten Pieters, CEO and MD, Vodafone India, added, “We are working in the areas of education, empowerment and the environment as part of our ‘Vodafone Cares’ initiative. Whatever meaningful we can do to facilitate a better quality of life for India’s millions, especially women, will be a step in the right direction.” Before unveiling the book, Kajol said, “In India, where it’s always tougher for a woman than a man, it’s inspiring to see so many courageous women who chose to speak up for their rights.” The Vodafone Foundation has chosen women’s empowerment as a key area of focus and has several programmes and projects currently running across the country in association with credible partners from the social sector. Proceeds from the book sales will go towards empowering the girl child through the Naz Foundation.   ———– SOURCE: Times of India
