Mr. Suresh was the resource person for the two-day training for 40 women participants. The training stressed the importance of gender equality, women’s rights and the government schemes available for the protection of women from violence and exploitation. The women were encouraged to begin practicing gender quality within their families. The resource person brought to their notice, various circumstances where the women themselves discriminate between male and female children in their families. He pointed out that mothers have great influence over the men and boys in moulding their attitude and manners towards female members in the family and outside, with respect to gender equality. The activity-oriented training held the active attention of the participants throughout the training and they were enthused to learn more about the concepts and issues related to the rights of women, and the available schemes under the government and the means of accessing those provisions.
