Dr Nowhera shaik, The new age iron lady entered into politics in the year 2017 as an ordinary woman to fight against injustice and inequality for all irrespective of caste, creed and religion. Her resilience, courage, persistence, and ethics are an inspiration to all women. People who love her call her “Iron Lady”.
The issues of women and the indispensability of politics in addressing social concerns is what prompted Dr Shaik into forming the All India Mahila Empowerment Party (AIMEP), taking on its presidentship in between all her busy business schedules. Her entry into politics again proved her devotion and concern toward her people.
Ultimately, things can be made possible only through organising mass movements to make things clear and demand from the authorities justice when it comes to women’s rights and gender equality.
All India Mahila Empowerment Party was launched on the 12th of November 2017 and stated its ideology as justice and equality for all.
The election commission of India recognized AIMEP as a national political party and also allotted a diamond as its election symbol. The first election took place at Karnataka in 2018 April for all 224 seats and is now planning to contest in the Telangana parliamentary election, 2019.
In its launching ceremony itself, the party had taken up the issue of women’s representation in the Indian parliament, demanding the implementation of the Women’s Reservation Bill.
