"We are in the 21st century, but for a large part it is a male-dominated world still. Yes, more women are coming out and standing shoulder to shoulder in every profession, in fact, even outshining them. They are doing it against all odds, on most occasions. The journey upwards and forwards is that much harder despite the talent being in abundance. The  2021 Wonder Women 100 - is our way of saluting them. Our hope is that their stories will give wings to many other younger women and inspire them to realise their full potential," said Indiantelevision.com founder and editor-in-chief Anil Wanvari.
