On 08th March 2018, Sanskriti in collaboration of Women Skill Centre and Sano Paila (A Little Step) organized a one day Interaction event on the occasion of 108th International Women’s Day 2018 to bring people together and create a neutral platform where average members of the society can rub minds with others that have gone ahead in their fields. The event was supported by Global Education Counselling Consultancy. The theme of the event was “SEXUAL ABUSE AT WORKPLACE”.
The event was presided by Shailee Chaudhary and chaired by Mrs. Salma Khatoon, Deputy Mayor, Pokhariya Municipality, in presence of distinguished personalities like Mrs. Shanti Karki, Deputy Mayor, Birgunj Metropolitan City, Madam Sushma Tiwari Dwivedy, professor and women rights activists, Mamata Rajkarnikar, Lakshami Dutta, Darshana Jha, Female leader Rambha Mishra, Monika Singh, Usha Sheevastaw, Durga Chettri, Youth leader Rahbar Ansari, Dilip Karki, Journalist Bijay Kushwaha, Ritesh Tripathi, Suresh Bidari, Radheshyam Patel and Madhuri Mahato among others. The attendees of the event were approximately 90 who visited from different parts of Parsa and Bara District.
During the event, our speakers shared their experiences and harassment at workplace, discussed over the abuse at different places women have to go through and also about the mediums to overcome the abuse women face in their everyday lives.
Overall the entire event was fruitful to interact and raise awareness among local actors and aims to the gain the support of these actors in order to impart knowledge of different scopes and emerge a platform for upliftment of the society and received assurance from different organisations to conduct related programs with collaboration from different concerned stakeholders and organizations. From such interactions, Sanskriti believes to create a platform for women to break the monotony and discuss
and debate the unspoken agendas in future.
