Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: Women need education to bring out their inherent multi-tasking abilities to the fore, said D. Purandeswari, Union Minister of State for Human Resources Development, here on Saturday.

“The only road to women empowerment is through education, which will help them to realise their rights and fight against atrocities,” she said.

Sharing details about the objective and mission of the Centre, P.
