Dr Pratibha, working at the grassroots level, narrated her experiences about Women in society. She said fine balance culture is needed in society. To break the barriers, she appealed to Women to Overcome all the limitations and break free, listen to their inner voice and learn to love themselves. The struggle is reduced but not over. Paradigm shift needed towards Women.

In the context of the State of Goa, she said there is a very much secure work environment in Goa. Being a tourist destination, more and more women entrepreneurs should come forward with new ideas as the government is there to help out, she further said.

In every sphere of life, including various professions, women's contributions are very much visible. However, the gender balance seems to be missing in a few organizations that need attention, said Dr Pratibha. New Indian women take new India to greater heights, she said in her closing remarks.
