The strength to never turn back.

Geeta Phogat

A woman who wrestled gender stereotypes

Being a woman from a small village in Haryana, growing up to be a wrestler was never easy. Wrestling being a man's sport, Geeta was always looked down upon. With her father's constant encouragement and guidance, she turned this demotivation into the fuel that drove her to push herself beyond what she thought was possible and became the first Indian woman to win a gold for wrestling at the Commonwealth Games.


Her success changed her life and that of all women in her village and across the male dominated state. The same women who were looked upon as secondary to men are now sparring partners even for male wrestlers. A whole new level of admiration and respect has dawned upon them all. Geeta's Will of Steel has changed the future of her entire community.

Through the sports excellence program, JSW has enabled her and her family so she may train better and prepare for the next Olympic Games. Due to an injury, she was unable to participate in the previous one. Now JSW stands by her side as she pushes herself further and aims for a gold even there.

She is in every way a personification of the Will of Steel. It takes sheer persistence and determination to achieve what she has. Considering the environment she trained and grew up in, the bigger challenge was to win over appreciation. Now that she has brought a medal home, the same men who laughed at her now proudly claim to know her. She is an inspiration to all women and a living example of the fact that even though women might be physically inferior at times, they are always equal in spirit.
