The BJMC II students attended a panel discussion that was organised by Navjyoti India Foundation in Nayagaon village to mark the Women’s Day. The guest of honour was Ms. Kiran Bedi, and the topic of the discussion was â€œ6P Model of Prevention and Crimeâ€.
The panellists with Ms Bedi were Ms Suchi Atrija, District Magistrate, Gurgaon, Ms Dharna Yadav, ACP and Ms Junika Banarjee from the Centre of Social Research.
The event focused on women’s empowerment and how to make sure that women are safe and empowered.
The panellists spoke on various issues that are of concern such as women’s safety, dowry deaths, and cyber crimes. Most of the information was targeted at villagers, who had come in large numbers from the neighbouring villages, to attend the panel discussion.
The panel discussion was especially useful for the village women who were made aware of their rights. They were taught how to register complaints in the women’s cell or visit the office of the District Legal Services Authority for assistance.
The ceremony concluded with the felicitation of those village women who had done something extraordinary in fighting the orthodox customs that prevail in villages.
It was a great learning experience for the media students because they gained first hand knowledge of the problems faced by village women.
The students were accompanied by Ms Neha Verma, Assistant Professor.
