Amritsar, October 14
To celebrate International Girl Child Day, Women Empowerment-cum-Grievance Redressal Cell, DAV College, Amritsar, organised an online lecture on ‘My Voice: Our Equal Future’ today. Dr Amandeep Kaur, Director, Amandeep Group of Hospitals, was the resource person. More than 100 participants attended the lecture.
Principal Dr Rajesh Kumar focused on how girls play multiple roles in household, society and the economy. “But with the passage of time, the thinking of people towards women has not changed completely even today, problems such as child marriage, dowry and female foeticide are still prevalent in the society. The Government of India has also implemented a number of schemes to empower girls, under which ‘Beti Bachao and Beti Padhao’ is a notable scheme. Apart from this, the central and state governments are also launching other important schemes for betterment of girls,” he said.
Dr Amandeep Kaur threw light on education, equality and empowerment of adolescent girls. She highlighted various challenges faced by girls in the society. “My Voice, Our Equal Future,” was the theme of International Girl Child Day and on this day as well as on other 365 days of year we all should celebrate the possibilities of a better world inspired by girls and young women. Girls around the world are lifting their collective voices to impact social change,” she said. — TNS
