In a step towards the inclusion of the transgender community into mainstream society, Sathyasri Sharmila became India’s first transgender lawyer.
36 year old Sharmila, who hails from Tamil Nadu, did not have an easy journey, as she was subject to torture and abuse on account of her gender.
“Today, I enrolled my name in the Bar Council Of Tamil Nadu And Puducherry and became the first transgender lawyer in India. I have struggled a lot in my life,” she told ANI.
