On April 6th, 2024, the vibrant city of Burlington, MA, was alive with the spirit of empowerment and celebration as the ATA (American Telugu Association) held its Women’s Day celebration. Led by the dynamic ATA Regional Director, Malla Yanala, and an exceptional team of individuals including Anitha Reddy Yajnik, Shilpa Sripuram, Deepika Reddy, Rajender Kalavala, and Sudhir Prodduturi, the event stood as a beacon of inclusivity and empowerment.

entertainment that not only lifted spirits but also served as a reminder of the strength and resilience inherent in every woman.

The Women’s Day celebration at ATA served as a powerful reminder of the transformative potential of collective action and mutual support in the journey towards gender equality and empowerment.

In the words of Maya Angelou, “Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.” Let us continue to stand together, uplift one another, and pave the way for a brighter, more inclusive future for women everywhere.
