Legal awareness key step towards Women empowerment: Vimukti Pothnal

Vimukti Pothnal in collaboration with Enemble agissons France organized legal awareness program on 22nd of November, 2022 at vimukti premises. The aim of the program is to spread legal awareness among SHG members and participants learned about the Indian legal system, concept of basic rights and equality under law, family and property law, as domestic violence act, and sexual harassment ant workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act etc. the resource person kept the sessions active and interactive and expressed her views saying women in our country are viewed through patriarchal eyes. Even in today’s day and age several households see women who remain silent and marginalized, giving the men an upper hand and greater role in decision- making. It is vital that women stand up for themselves, and in order to do so, information plays a great role as it can make them aware of their rights. The fact is that that women’s lack of awareness of their rights is what hinders them from speaking up for themselves and their right to equal opportunity. It is widely acknowledged that elimination violence and discrimination against women necessitates well-planned legal awareness programmes that emphasis and empower women by giving them with knowledge about constitutional safeguards created expressly from them. The dignitaries including chief Guest, Mrs. Bernadette Ensemble agissons member France, Mrs. Gireja resource person, Mrs. Shilpa Staff nurse, Fr. Sathish Fernandes, VCT director, Eshamma, Mrs. Jecintha, Uma devi etc, were on the dais. Mr. Arogyappa welcomed and thanked each one for gracing the event.
