Rekha Sharma assumed the charge of Chairperson, National Commission for Women on August 7, 2018. If one takes a closer look at her style of working, the two distinct virtues that pop up are leadership spirit and willingness. If NCW is known for working round the clock for addressing women’s issues, it is because of her pioneering efforts to be ever ready for women in need.
She has been associated with the Commission as a member since August 2015 and held the additional charge as Chairperson, NCW with effect from September 29, 2017 before becoming its Chairperson on August 7, 2018. NCW has been setting up new milestones under her leadership ever since she's been at the helm of affairs with the latest being the Commission's campaign with the National Legal Services Authority on empowering women through legal services which was launched on the auspicious occasion of 74th Independence Day.
