International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance -  #EachforEqual. In honor of International Women's Day, Assistant Professor Swapnil Rai participated in a panel discussion at the "Women of Wisdom" event, presented by Miindia and DIWA, on March 8, 2020. 

Rai comments, "I got the opportunity to talk about feminism and women’s representation in Bollywood films [at this event]. Great panelists and a very engaged audience of South Asian women achievers!  Congresswoman Haley Stevens attended it with us and delivered the keynote."
