National Conference on Gender Sensitivity: Law and Society
College of Law & Legal Studies, Teerthanker Mahaveer University is going to organize a National Conference on "Gender Sensitivity: Law and Society"
Date: 2nd May, 2015
Venue: Teerthanker Mahaveer University, Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh
Despite a lot of successes in empowering women, many issues still remain unresolved in various spheres of life, ranging from the cultural, political to the legal and economic.
An increasing number of governments are adopting equality laws to encourage ongoing societal evolution, to redress past discriminations, and to eliminate existing discriminations in domestic laws, policies and practices. Such equality laws usually contain gender provisions. Governments can implement legislation with the goal of promoting wider societal transformation.
The National Conference on "Gender Sensitivity: Law and Society" aims to raise public awareness of women-related issues and promote gender sensitivity within the community. The conference will allow participants to exchange ideas on public education, gender mainstreaming, empowerment of women and legal perspective of gender concerns.
