Dibrugarh University discusses Women's Rights

DIBRUGARH: A two-day workshop on 'Women and Legal Rights' concluded at Moran College in Dibrugarh on Wednesday. Around 100 students and 35 teachers from different colleges of the district participated in the UGC-sponsored workshop which was organized in collaboration with the Indian Red Cross Society, Charaideo branch.

The workshop was inaugurated by Nita Kalita Baruah, professor of Dibrugarh University, and her colleague at Calcutta University, Ishita Mukherjee, delivered the keynote lecture. This was followed by an interactive session where women's legal rights vis-a-vis domestic violence, dowry and crime were discussed. The participants were divided into three groups, Jagriti, Pragati and Nirbhaya.

"If you sensitize college teachers, you can sensitize everyone through them," said Jutimoni Bordoloi, the convenor of the workshop, on the participation of college teachers.
