About the Workshop

The International Web-Workshop on Dynamics of Gender Justice and Violence Against Women: Issues, Challenges and Remedies is organised by Sexual Harassment Prevention Cell, Bankura University from Oct 3-4, 2020.
In this backdrop of gender-related uncertainty, persons belonging to different gender categories are suffering owing to different factors, like domination and oppression including the manifestations of oppression, like exploitation, marginalisation, powerlessness, cultural imperialism and violence.
Indian society is generally patriarchal and patriarchal structure dominates all spheres of life and generates violence, in case of any disobedience to it. In the present social scenario, the dynamics of gender justice shows violence against women and third genders.
Practically, gender justice is not yet achieved in India and a number of crimes are committed against women and other genders, which include female foeticide, sexual harassment of women, acid attack, domestic violence, dowry death, honour killing, rape, insult on the modesty of women, unnatural offences, like sodomy on third genders etc.
Keeping the current developments and the emerging trends in mind, the International WebWorkshop invites deliberations from the scholars, academicians, development professionals, NGO activists and expert practitioners in the field.
It also generates awareness regarding the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013, the University Grants Commission (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal of Sexual Harassment of Women Employees and Students in Higher Educational Institutions) Regulations, 2015 and the existence of the ‘Sexual Harassment Prevention Cell’ at the Bankura University.
