TWA had the honor of three esteem panelists on the final day panel discussion: Honorable Sheila Dikshit, former chief minister of India's capital New Delhi; Shri Mani Shankar Aiyar, former minister and current Member of Parliament and Ms. Karuna Nundy, senior advocate of the Supreme Court of India.

...
Advocate Karuna Nundy said it is time to lead now and stop the culture of complicity with the system of patriarchy. It is time to reject the system of thought that privileges men. In the current world, Ms. Nundy argued, "my rights and your rights are tied in together". Its important to struggle for our rights, because rights are never handed to the oppressed on a platter. She said having a daughter is the biggest indicator of whether a man is a feminist. In the legal world, Ms. Nundy said, it's now time to create systems of incentives and penalties to really make a sustaining difference in sensitizing police and judges to gender issues. She also said that patriachal system should be rejected completely brcause it not only oppresses women, but it also suppresses the compassionate and sensitive side of men.
Shri. Mani Shankar Aiyar reflected on how the He's in positions of power and are dominating the society. So, unless the He's created space for the She's to exercise their power, women will never be able to take on leadership positions. He credited the 33% reservation for women in India for creating a platform that has allowed 13-15 lakh women to be elected to local offices. He said, more women hold elected offices in India than rest of the world put together. He said that with appropriate training and education, all women could be just as effective as men. He also argued that women tend to be less corrupt compared to men and they tend to focus more on social welfare issues
