The term Soldier for women is really powerful. It neither means that men are the owners of the women in their life, nor it implies that women are meek. It purely wants to tune the mindset of the coming generations and the current one to the fact that women need to be cared for and protected. I salute Blog Adda and Gillette India for this initiative.
We all go by our daily lives every day without noticing the good deeds of a stranger. Here is me saluting the men I dont know but their actions have proved to be that of a Soldier for Women.
