Senior Commander Col.Balraj, who is generally credited with first deploying women fighting groups in the successful attack against Mankulam camp in 1990, said that women tigers have shown that they are equal to men in battlefield. Women tigers have contributed immensely to LTTE's military successes, he added. The video documentary will help to inform our people and our future generations of the historic changes brought about by Tamil women in battle, Col.Balraj said.
