Globally, women have fewer opportunities for economic participation than men, less access to basic and higher education, greater health and safety risks, and less political representation. Guaranteeing the rights of women and giving them opportunities to reach their full potential is critical not only for attaining gender equality, but also for meeting a wide range of international development goals. Empowered women and girls contribute to the health and productivity of their families, communities, and countries, creating a ripple effect that benefits everyone.
A Group Discussion was organized online on MS- Teams on 12th May 2021in which 36 students of Uttaranchal Institute of Technology participated. The main objective of the event was to make students participate and place their views on “Gender equality is a human right, but our world faces a persistent gap in access to opportunities and decision-making power for women and men.”
The activity was organized by Ms. Madhu Kirola, Ms. Nishima Chaddha and Ms.Niharika Rawat.
