Celebration of International Women’s Day

In line with the rest of the World, the Nagaland State Commission for Women, celebrated the International Women’s Day (2016) with the theme “Pledge for Parity” by way of organizing seminar on “Gender Sensitization among the Youth” at Patkai Christian College (Autonomous) Seithekema, on 8th March 2016 at the college Bundrock Hall. In the keynote address the NSCW Chairperson Dr. Temsula Ao, stressed that the ideal place to start sensitizing youngsters about gender issues is in the family where parents should not show any discrimination between boy and girl children regarding duties or privileges. And the next stage is at school where teachers should treat all children equally and acknowledge the achievements without any bias towards a particular gender. That is why simple courses on gender-sensitization should be introduced in the curriculum right from the primary classes. If this is done then teaching teenagers and adult students about the subject becomes a normal part of the routine.
