Women Officers Of Army, Navy & Airforce Grace The Cover Of Femina, Desis React With ‘Gratitude’

Things today couldn’t be more different, as every kind of woman is being justly represented. Right from Nobel laureates to Vice presidents of countries are gracing the covers of fashion magazines.

Earlier, Former Kerala Health Minister KK Shailaja was on the cover of Vogue magazine. This time, it is Femina’s cover that is powered by female officers from the Indian Army, Navy and Airforce.
