I usually have a practice to recite “Shri Ram Raksha Stotra and Hanuman Chalisa” before bed time and make my elder daughter to offer prayers before she goes to sleep. So, by this practice Ramayana characters all are known to her. A few days later one of the popular Hindi Television channel came up with the Mytholgical series of Ramayana from Sita’s perspective.
Most of us know Shri Rama, Sita, Lakshmana, Hanuman, Dasharatha the most popular characters of Ramayana. The lesser known character for me was Seerdhwaja Janaka(father of Sita) popularly  known as Rajarishi Janaka/King Janaka. He became the limelight for me with this TV series. The preaching he followed made me think “AWE” about him and the happier #WomanInMe.
a) He adopted Sita as his own daughter and made her never the know the fact until Vedic Philosopher Gargi let Sita know about her origin. He adopted girl baby and did not abandon and #SaveAGirlBaby mission was already in practice.

b) He did not follow gender bias and gave equal educational opportunities.

c) In his court both male and female Vedic philosophers were given equal opportunities.

d) He gave the right to take decisions to the women in his family and had consent with everyone to even the most sensitive topic like marriage.

e) And the last highlight which I would like to mention and which makes me the happiest is :He did not want to have a son as an heir to his legacy!!!
