In a move that will redefine gender equality in the Indian Navy, Sub Lieutenant Kumudini Tyagi and Sub Lieutenant Riti Singh will be the first women officers who will be deployed on Navy warships as part of the ship's crew. Though the Indian Navy does employ several women officers in its ranks, women have, thus far, not been embarked on warships for lengthy durations due to a host of reasons - including the lack of privacy in crew quarters and the availability of gender-specific bathroom facilities. That is set to now change with the two young officers who are training to operate a host of sensors onboard Navy multi-role helicopters, including sonar consoles and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) payloads.
