Yasmeen Batool becomes first woman to represent Ladakh in archery in 2020 Khelo India Games

In Ladakh, gender discrimination relatively less than many places around the world. It is reflected in various traditions and practices. Thus, Ladakhi men and women have made their mark in fields as diverse as medicine, engineering, aviation, security forces, mountaineering, long distance running, taekwondo etc.

However, there are several traditional fields and sports from which women have been excluded so far.

One such traditional sport is  archery, which has  been practiced  by men only. Thankfully the situation  is also changing now.  

Women are coming to participate in the event. Yasmeen Batool,  from Chanchik in Kargil  became the first woman to represent the Union Territory of Ladakh in the 2020 Khelo India Games held in Guwahati, Assam.

Yasmeen Batool said that it was a great  opportunity  for her to represent Ladakh in a national event.
