I worked for the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, India, for over 33 years and then opted for VRS in 2007. Let me inform you that there are so many women Scientists in different laboratories/institutes of the CSIR as well as in ICAR, ICMR, ISRO and DRDO and other research organisations in India. I am sure there will be many in other countries also.
