Dr J Jayalalithaa,
Honourable Chief Minister,
Tamil Nadu

Dear Madam,

We, the undersigned, are individuals and organisations concerned about gender equality and women’s empowerment in Tamil Nadu, would like to congratulate you on your tremendous win in the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly elections, 2016.

Women’s organisations in Tamil Nadu are looking forward to the revival of the Tamil Nadu State Women’s Commission, with a proactive chair who is proven to be sensitive to gender issues, and has concretely contributed towards women’s empowerment. We envision the Commission as a dynamic and efficient body, committed to guaranteeing the rights of women in Tamil Nadu. We hope the Commission will work in consultation with civil society, especially women’s organisations, in the state.

Yours sincerely,
