Legal Awareness for Women
On Friday, 9th October the third year students of Loreto College attended a special session, ‘Legal Awareness for Women’. Ms. Paromita Dasgupta, Lecturer at National Institute of Juridical Sciences spoke at length about pertinent issues like sexual harassment and gender inequality both at the personal and professional level.
Cases of women victims of abuse and molestation who moved court against perpetrators, with minimal social support were shared so as to instill in the students the need to assert themselves. Ms. Dasgupta helped all present to grow in awareness of the legal measures that could be taken in times of discrimination. She encouraged us to take action if faced with victimization, be it even in the virtual world of social media. The session was a truly informative one and bore immense relevance from the modern day perspective.
