 International Women's Day celebrated in Avadh University

 Ayodhya :   Women's Grievance and Welfare Cell of Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Avadh University organized a program on International Women's Day at Sant Kabir Auditorium on Tuesday.  Presiding over the program, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Ravi Shankar Singh, first of all, while wishing the teachers, students and women employees of the University, on the occasion of Women's Day, said that today is a day of celebration for half the population.  Society should be made aware of gender unity and equality.  Vice Chancellor Prof. Singh said that this year the theme of International Women's Day has been kept as Gender Equality for a Sustainable Tomorrow which focuses on women empowerment.  The Vice Chancellor said that women have equal potential as men provided they are trusted.  The Vice Chancellor said that where women are respected, gods reside there, although women are looked upon with respect all over the world, but in Indian culture and tradition, women have a special place for centuries.  At present, on International Women's Day, if we assess with an open mind, we find that even after the respect given to women, it is divided into two parts.  On one side there are absolutely suppressed, crushed, uneducated and backward women and on the other side women are progressing on the path of progress.  In many cases, women are touching new heights ahead of men.  Giving a resolution on Women's Day, Vice Chancellor Prof. Singh said that all women will be respected and their progress will never be hindered.  If every person in the world considers this, then women will never have to be deprived of their rights.

            Prof. Shweta Prasad of Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi Sociology Department was the chief guest in the program.  He said that women contribute a lot to the economy in the form of business, entrepreneurial work and wage labor.  Talking about the corporate world, today every big post is dominated by women.  Even in a male dominated country like India, women have made their own identity with their work skills and at the same time have played an important role as mother, sister, daughter, wife and friend.  Talking about women empowerment on International Women's Day, women have to fight for their rights first so that they can be strong in fighting the world.  It must be accepted that you are empowered in life to maintain self esteem.  The first important step to be taken as a women is to gain self-esteem by increasing self-confidence, understanding your importance and taking care of yourself and respect yourself.  In the development of self-esteem, one has to adorn one's inner strength with influential ideas. Dr. Uma Mustafa, UPCST Lucknow, as the special guest in the program, said that education is one of the most important means of empowering self and other women.  Education is an important part of the process of skill and confidence development.  Education gives women the power to choose which ensures their welfare, health, education of children and sustainable development of families.  In the program, the coordinator of the Women's Grievances and Welfare Cell, Prof. Tuhina Verma said that when it comes to crimes against women, many crimes are not registered because women are not aware of their rights.  To curb rising crimes, it is important that you know your legal rights.  The Indian Constitution provides more rights to women such as Maternity Benefits Act, Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace, Protection of Women from Domestic Violence, Prohibition of Child Marriage Act.  These rights have been created for the safety of women.  University's Dean Student Welfare Prof. Neelam Pathak said that women are full of immense power, if given a chance, they can reach any height and play a role in India's sustainable development.

         Engineer Manisha Yadav conducted the program.  Vote of thanks was proposed by Sneha Patel.  On this occasion, Prof. Vinod Srivastava, Prof. Rajiv Gaur, Prof. Shailendra Kumar, Dr. Shailene, Dr. Tarun Gangwar, Dr. Mahima Chaurasia, Dr. Neelam Yadav, Dr. Shashi Singh, Dr. Neelam Singh, Engineer Nidhi Prasad, Dr. Pratibha Tripathi, Dr. Niharika Singh, Gayatri Verma,  A large number of students including Vallavi Tiwari were present.
