“Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women and Girls” : Vimukti Pothnal

VIMUKTI Pothnal organized training on gender Equality and Empowerment of women and Girls at vimukti premises on 20th June 2019. Mr. Charlie the campaign facilitator explain in length by saying, Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment are today accepted as vital development objectives, crucial for the realization of human rights and key to effective and sustainable development outcomes. The male female ratio though improved over last few years is still far from satisfactory. The female literacy rate is also lower than the male literacy rate. In spite of reservation being granted to women in Panchayat elections after 73rd and 74th Constitution amendment, in many Panchayats the male chauvinism does not allow them to function independently. Socio-cultural norms and practices limit the accessibility to capacity building opportunities that are there for women, which can address the various issues that have long kept them and their communities underdeveloped and poverty stricken.

Fr. Sathish Fernandes explained saying Gender inequality is a social problem which causes unfair treatment in society between different genders. These dissimilarities are distinguished from biological factors, especially from differing reproductive roles in life. This misperception comes originally from the wrong understanding about the position of each gender in life. Therefore let us treat equally and respect each other as human person; thus enlightened the community leaders to be positive in our thinking and dealings, nearly 86 leaders attended and benefitted from this program.
