Girls Safety and Legal help available in Women Harassment Issues

Date: 25th September 2017

On occasion of “Pharmacist’s Day”, on 25th September 2017 one day seminar was arranged on “Girls Safety and Legal help available in Women Harassment Issues”.

Mrs. Sujata Tanawade Sr. Police Inspector, Karjat was guest of honour. Dr. Deepanjali Bawiskar and Dr. Swati Kale talked about “Menstrual Hygiene”.

Women and girls are frequently subject to violence and abuse – from physical and verbal harassment to assault and rape on city streets, public transportation or in their own neighborhoods. Such daily occurrences limit the rights and freedoms of women as equal citizens to enjoy their neighborhoods and cities. One of the major concerns for women in urban areas is safety in public spaces in both the developed and developing world. Sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence occur every day for women and girls globally. It happens on streets, in and around schools and workplaces, in parks, in public sanitation facilities, and in neighborhoods. Violence and sexual harassment in public spaces restrict women’s freedom of movement, reduce their access to essential services, and negatively impact their health and wellbeing.

Under the guidance of Dr. Mohan Kale all the ladies teaching, non teaching faculty participated with all girls in the college. The event was co ordinated by Mrs. Kirteebala Pawar.
