Women activists On International Women’s Day

New Delhi, 10th July, 2022 (By a staff reporter, Indian Express)

From workshops to burning of effigies of politicians and seminars to puppet shows, women activists organized a wide range of programmes in the capital to mark ‘International Women’s Day’ on Monday. The ‘Joint Action Forum for Women’ organized a seminar on ‘Necessity of Women’s Empowerment for the Development of the Nation’, in which Union Human Resource Development Minister was the Chief Guest. Several other political leaders also graced the occasion with their presence. Most of the speakers asserted the need of passing the bill on providing Women’s reservation in Parliament and State Assemblies. The minister informed that the bill on reservation had already been introduced in this budget session of Parliament and the government is trying to get the bill passed with support of the opposition.

He also informed that some political parties are opposing the bill just for the sake of opposition. The member activists exemplify the role of women in the freedom struggle and in the development of the nation. The president of the forum Mrs. Kidwai told that by giving 33 Percent reservation for women, no political party is doing any favour to the women. Women constitute 50% of the total population. A demand for free education for women upto graduation, making judiciary more quick in disposing the cases of crimes against the women was also made. Though participants expressed jubilation at the progress women have made in several fields, but the crude statistics of crime against women and low literacy among women bothered many. Many politicians stressed the need that the women and the girls should avoid invitational and inciting fashions, which resulted in the increase in the crimes against the women and girls. The necessity of moral and ethicals values was also emphasised in the education of the young generations. The seminar was a grand success.
