New Delhi, Nov 24 (PTI) JNU Vice Chancellor Santishree D Pandit on Thursday said that ‘Amrit Kal’ cannot come in the country without women empowerment even as she asked why there were so few women in top leadership.

She also said the country should think of ways to bring young girls who are forced to leave studies back to education.

Pandit was speaking on the inaugural day of a three-day conference and expo organised by the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). "We are third in the country and the best in terms of inclusion and equality … The idea behind the conference which has greatly impressed me is facilitating innovation from ‘Lab to Land’,” she said.
