Women Leading the Way: A Look Ahead to 50% Female CAs by 2047

Women are normally skilled finance managers or accountants, FM Nirmala Sitharaman is an example of this: President Murmu.


President Droupadi Murmu recently shared her optimism about the future of women in the chartered accountancy profession in India. Speaking at the 75th Chartered Accountants’ Day organized by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in India (ICAI), she expressed her hope that by the time India celebrates its 100th year of independence in 2047, half of the practicing CAs in the country will be women. Currently, around 42 percent of the total passed candidates are female, indicating a positive trend toward gender parity in the profession.

Women: As skilled Finance Managers or Accountants

President Murmu highlighted the important role women play as skilled Finance Managers or accountants, citing Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman as a prime example. She also commended women for their prudent financial habits, noting their tendency to save for rainy days. President Murmu applauded ICAI for launching ‘Financial and Tax Literacy’ programs for women, emphasizing the need to empower more women in financial management roles.

CAs-  The Financial Architects

In a tweet, Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended his greetings to CAs on Chartered Accountants’ Day, recognizing them as key financial architects contributing to India’s economic growth and self-reliance. He praised their analytical acumen and steadfast commitment, acknowledging their expertise in shaping a prosperous India.

Women for Future

President Murmu’s vision for the future of women in chartered accountancy reflects a broader societal shift towards gender equality and empowerment. As more women enter and excel in traditionally male-dominated fields, the landscape of professional opportunities continues to evolve, creating a more inclusive and diverse workforce for the future.
