By: Mahalakshmi Pavani 10 March 2019 9:52 AM GMT "A lot of sacrifices go into the making of the Woman who you see in court tackling cases, clients, family, social pursuits with ease and elan. Multi-tasking is indeed to be learnt from Lady Lawyers." In the wake of contemporary feminist movements like #MeToo emerging from all over the world since 2016, feminism has been well perceived by young minds and has flourished considerably.

By The Washington Post | PUBLISHED: July 3, 2018 at 9:11 pm | UPDATED: July 3, 2018 at 9:12 pm By Mary Jordan MJ Hegar, an Air Force pilot shot down by the Taliban in Afghanistan, was a political unknown until she opened fire with 2018’s most effective political weapon: the viral online video. Hegar’s 3 1/2-minute biographical ad, called “Doors,” has been viewed online by nearly 5 million people. It features the door from the chopper whose crash she survived and refers to the glass door she says her mother was thrown through by her abusive father. Inspired by Hegar’s story, donations have poured into the Texas Democrat’s campaign to unseat Rep. John Carter, a Republican who has been in Congress since 2003. In New York’s Democratic primary on June 26, 28-year-old activist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knocked off incumbent Rep. Joseph Crowley, a 20-year veteran and power broker in Congress, partly on the strength of her online video. In it, … [Read more...] about Women candidates lean on viral ads that capture their ‘magic’
