Panel discussion on gender equality in Punjab University,Chandigarh

Prajakta Avhad, President Samvedana participated in the panel discussion organised by the Department of Women‘s studies and development on the occasion of the international women’s day celebrations.

In spite of various laws, stringent measures and welfare schemes by the governments and a lot of work done by civil society, gender equal society still seems to be distant dream. The pandemic has exposed the biases and discriminations against women in a more brutal manner in terms of increasing violence, job losses, increasing numbers of drop out girls and child marriages. Working on the mentality of the society seems to be a ever ongoing job by every stakeholder.
