Cheers
To the women who break stereotypes
Work during the day and at night.
To the women who stay home
Taking care of a family and packing lunch.
To the little girls who dream to fly
To the senior women who munch
While they narrate proud stories
Of a woman saving the world
In a Saree
Carrying a latthi
Wearing Jimmy Choo
And conquering the world before you can count till two.

Here's a list of some iconic women who have broken the rules and built an empire, setting an example with a word, an action and gesture.

1. Priyanka Chopra

The list would be incomplete without piggy chops on it. Don't you think? From the crowning as Miss World to being the 'Desi girl' of Bollywood, she has come a long way. A long way that ended at gates of Hollywood. Not really though. Her journey continued. She is the Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF today and lies in the hearts of people worldwide. She won awards and critical acclaim for her performance as Alex Parish in the hit TV series Quantico. She made her Hollywood debut this year in the film Baywatch.
According to an NDTV article: Forbes placed Priyanka on the 15th spot on the list of Most Powerful Women In Entertainment And Media, Priyanka has won the People's Choice award twice for her portrayal of Alex Parrish in the ABC series.
