She says that her daughter, who was earlier working at a salon in Chandigarh, fell into the drug trap there. The mother has tried everything to make her kick the habit but nothing has worked. They keep her for a day or two, give some medicines and then send her back.
Woman chains drug addict daughter in Punjab | Chandigarh News - Times of India
She has escaped from there twice. The woman, worry writ large on her face, says that it was just last week that her daughter ran off again after returning from the de-addiction centre. The mother is disillusioned with the drug de-addiction programme. For every aspect of their lives, these women are completely reliant on someone else. This week in Davos, the UN Secretary General announced he is establishing an expert team of leading politicians, expert economists, charity heads and business leaders to jumpstart a global movement on women's economic empowerment. I'm privileged to be joining this High Level Panel, alongside the President of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim and many eminent names who will be announced over the next few weeks.
For me, it's about girls and women everywhere having a voice, choice and control over their lives and futures. We are helping more girls go to school, more women to vote and tackling violence against women and girls. I've also been determined to champion issues that, in the past, have been seen as too difficult and too sensitive to tackle.

In the last few years I am proud to have helped push things like family planning access, Female Genital Mutilation and child marriage right to the top of the global agenda. The case for women's economic empowerment is about basic human rights and the right of a woman to choose for herself the life she wants to lead. But it's also basic economics.
Imagine the potential economic impact it would have if the millions of potential female entrepreneurs, innovators and business leaders, who are right now being airbrushed out of the picture, had the opportunity to choose their own path? What a huge difference that would make to them and the world economy. A recent McKinsey Global Institute report estimates that if women in every country played an identical role in markets to men, as much as twenty eight trillion dollars would be added to the global economy by The same research finds that if every nation only matched the progress of the fastest-improving country in its region, it would add twelve trillion dollars, which represents an eleven per cent boost to global GDP.
So, women's economic empowerment is the best poverty tackling strategy out there. The voices for gender equality are getting louder and louder every year and, as a result, the great news is that we're seeing real progress.
Last year the world agreed new Global Goals for ending extreme poverty and the UK, and others, successfully championed a number of key commitments on gender equality. Over nations signed up to Global Goal 5 to end discrimination against women and girls, end violence against women, and to undertake reforms that give women equal rights to economic resources and equal rights to own land.
