New Delhi, March 6 (IANS) Union Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi on Wednesday felicitated as many as 30 women, who have been driving social reforms via social media.
The campaign, "Web Wonder Women", was organised by the WCD Ministry with an aim to celebrate the exceptional achievements of these women who were selected after an extensive research process.

The WCD Minister, along with a panel of 10 judges, finalised the names of 30 women from over 240 nominations received under the categories media, awareness, legal, health, governmental, food, environment, development, business and art.
