Kerala University Gender Inequality Conference

About the Seminar

It will be a three day national seminar on Gender Inequality in Contemporary India: Issues and Challenges. Attaining gender justice is not an easy task in India. From time immemorial, a girl child has been considered as an unwanted entity and a burden that the parents would not mind doing away with.

Discrimination against women begins even before her birth. The gruesome evils of female feoticide and infanticide prove how brutal the world could be to women. Though the Indian constitution provides equal rights and privileges for men and women and makes equal provision to improve the status of women in society, majority of women are still unable to enjoy the rights and opportunities guaranteed to them.
