The Union Minister Jitendra Singh on March 06, 2020 has said that women shall get family pension while the divorce proceedings are pending. He also said that new avenues are being opened up for women under the regime of the current government. 

"He (Singh) pointed out that an order in the pensions department was modified recently for divorced daughters and now, even if the divorce matter is pending, women will be entitled for family pension," a statement issued by the ministry said.

"India has come a full circle in women empowerment as they are now seeking opportunities and excelling in administrative jobs as well as in defence, space and the forces, which were earlier considered "taboos, earlier, women used to opt for teaching and social welfare jobs only." he said while addressing a workshop here to mark International Women's Day.

The International Women's Day is observed every year on March 08. 

According to him it is a new era of woman empowerment that is being observed across the country.
