CWDC organised a talk on Gender Sensitization and Gender Equality by Mr. Harish Sadani – In charge and Co-founder of MAVA (Men Against Violence and Abuse).
Gender Sensitization is one basic requirement for the normal development of an individual. Without being sensitive to the needs of a particular gender, an individual may refrain from understanding the opposite gender and in some acute cases even him or herself. The need for this sensitivity has been felt and realized through times immemorial and in almost all kinds of human existence, across the globe. But somehow in the recent times, a much stronger need is felt and realized to talk and discuss about this sensitive topic both on a Personal and Professional front.
90 students attended the talk. Mr. Harish briefed on gender differences, gender sensitization, gender equality and then highlighted the contribution of both the genders in creation and development of a well balanced society. He stressed on the point that to overcome the various disparities existing in lieu of gender equality the following aspects have to be developed:
Individuals need to be more open-minded, rational and unbiased in their thoughts and actions.
There is an urgent need to shatter the load of our Orthodox Beliefs and Biased Values to accentuate the Progressive Existence of both the genders.
Better reconciliation of work and private life for both women and men is essential to gender equality.
