When Kiran Bedi, Ph.D. became India’s first – and later highest-ranking – woman police officer, all hell broke loose. She was a tough cop: uncorrupted, innovative, and committed to social change. When the police force tried to get rid of her by making her the head of some of the most brutal prisons, she successfully reformed them. Awarded the Asian Nobel Peace Prize, Dr. Bedi used her winnings to found two NGOs. She has been voted India’s most admired woman.
