Women should rethink their Inheritance | Leila Seth | TEDxGatewayWomen



“As I’ve got older, I have begun to realize that women have been put down for so long that reservation is absolutely essential.”
- Leila Seth

She was the first woman judge of the Delhi High Court and the first woman to become chief justice of a state in India.
