Ms Shyamala S Kunder, Member, National Commission for Women, Delhi was the resource person for the guest talk organized at SDM College, Ujire, by Women Development Cell. While addressing student representatives from each section, Ms Kunder said, ‘Transparency with parents can limit violence against women to an extent’. She stressed on the need of building a good rapport between parents and children. Children must be taught to value relationships from childhood. Many unhealthy developments in the society have its root cause with family issues.
She added that, misuse of women rights is a matter of concern. Number of complaints to the NCW is increasing enormously. It is observed that dowry; rape, sexual harassment and divorce cases are on high rate. To control this development, discrimination between men and women that exist in the society must be checked.
Prof S Satheeshchandra, Principal SDM College, Ujire presided over the function. In his presidential remark he said ‘like nature, women are tolerant and kind. She is not equal to men but a step ahead of them’.
Ms Shubharani P S, Coordinator, Women Development Cell welcomed the gathering, Ms Amreen delivered vote of thanks while Ms Raksha mastered the ceremony.
