Give women, people with disabilities equal opportunities, says Deepa Malik
Women and people with disabilities in India must be given equal opportunities if India wants to become accessible and inclusive, says paralympian Deepa Malik.
Malik, who is the first Indian woman to win a medal at the paralympics, said that they should be provided with opportunities and the freedom to chase their dreams.
She said that instead of limiting them to the four walls of their homes, there should be an attempt to create a safer and more respectful environment for women and PwD.
Malik won a silver medal at the 2016 Summer Paralympics for shot put and is the oldest paralympian at 46. She was diagnosed with a cyst in her spinal cord, and was left paralyzed below chest.
