Femme First Foundation in partnership with Youth Ki Awaaz launched "She Runs Government Awards 2020" - India's first Awards for women politicians! These Awards recognized and celebrated women political leaders of India. In 2020, we have seen the remarkable way in which women leaders across the world have governed their countries during this unprecedented crisis. With these Awards, Femme First Foundation wanted to shine a light on our women politicians across various categories. We also believed that providing exposure to the outstanding work being done by women politicians on the ground will motivate and encourage more to follow the path. The She Runs Government Awards strived to demonstrate the impact of women in political leadership.

The winners are:
1. She Runs Government Awards 2020  -  Outstanding Sarpanch/Corporator - Ms Yasmin Kidwai, Delhi
