Invited Talk by Dr. Manjula Iyer

Dr. Manjula Iyer (Associate Professor, School of Contemporary Knowledge Systems) was the resource person for an invited talk organised by the Internal Complaints Committee, Women’s Cell and National Service Scheme (NSS) – Unit No.30 of Nirmala College, Muvattupuzha. She delivered a talk on the topic “Gender equality is a human right and not a human fight”.

Dr. Manjula explained the concept of gender equality and highlighted that gender equality is the measurable representation of women and men. It doesn’t imply that men and women are the same, but have equal value and should be accorded equal treatment. Irrespective of gender identity.. masculine, feminine or other, living in society is a human right, and gender equality becomes a reality when all genders are treated fairly and allowed equal opportunities. Over 200 students attended the session.
