BestMediaInfo Bureau | Delhi | March 21, 2013

Femina, India’s first and most read women’s lifestyle magazine, in association with beauty brand L’Oréal Paris hosted the second edition of L’Oréal Paris Femina Women Awards 2013 on Tuesday, March 19, in Mumbai. The awards celebrated 'Women of Worth' in India, honouring women across 17 categories including science, business and entrepreneurship, sports, art, education, television and music among others.

Femina as a brand has always been synonymous with celebrating women and their achievements and has done pioneering work in putting these achievers in the spotlight for the last 50 years.

Tarun Rai, CEO, World Wide Media, said, “For five decades Femina has been the friend, philosopher and guide to the modern Indian woman. It has inspired as well as celebrated her achievements. And over these years Femina has grown to become India’s largest English women’s magazine. It is only appropriate that Femina is awarding the Tangram trophy to women across 17 diverse categories. And we are happy that we have a like-minded brand, L’Oreal, partnering us in this endeavour.”

The evening saw distinguished women from various walks of life such as Mary Kom, Shabani Azmi, Nandita Das, VidyaBalan, Lisa Haydon and Sakshi Tanwar among many others being felicitated for work. L’Oreal Paris brand ambassadors Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan along with Farhan Akhtar, Diya Mirza, Kunal Kapoor and Nandita Das presented the awards.

Manashi Guha, Marketing Manager at L'Oréal Paris, said, “L’Oréal Paris has played a key role in the empowerment of women via its landmark slogan ‘Because You’re Worth it’. Today, with the L’Oréal Paris Femina Women Awards we are going even further in our quest to recognising the contributions of Women of Worth. The winners chosen today are perfect examples of women with extraordinary accomplishments, outstanding leadership qualities and exceptional commitment to the communities around them.”

Rounding off a successful second year of the awards, Tanya Chaitanya, Editor, Femina, said, “The L’Oreal Paris Femina Women Awards 2013 have gone a step further this year. This time we have made an all-out effort to introduce you to the unsung women who make a difference around us right from art to business, environment to science and technology. Not all the women on our nominee list are well known, but we promise you: each one of them is worth it.”
