Warangal: The women should learn to make effective use of available chances to come up in their lives, suggested District Revenue Officer (DRO) K Shoba. The women were known for their commitment and dedication in whatever field they work and make a value addition, she said while addressing a gathering at the International Women’s Day celebrations in Hanamkonda on Tuesday.

The celebrations were jointly organised by women and Child Development department, MEPMA and Sarvodaya Youth Organisation supported by Karl Kübel Foundation (KKS) and German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. Senior civil judge and District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) secretary G Neelima in her address felt that the Women’s Day should be celebrated across the year and not just on March 8.

She stressed on the need of family’s support for a woman’s growth in the society. She opined that if women were at the helm in the society, their issues would easily be addressed. Whenever disputes arise in a family, efforts should first be made to resolve it at family level. If it can’t be resolved at that level, those involved could reach out to the DLSA or organisations like Sarvodaya.

Steps were being taken to ensure proper sanitation in girls’ hostels and Shishu Gruhas with the help of the concerned department, she added. Additional Joint Collector S Tirupathi Rao expressed over incidents of violence against women and prejudice against them in the society.

‘This happens despite the assertions that women are respected in our society and all the rivers in the country have feminine names,” he added. The Sarvodaya secretary P Damodar said they have set up grama rakshaka committees to address the issues related to women locally while noted writer Anisetty Rajitha called upon women to fight collectively for their rights.

The participants have taken a pledge to work for women’s welfare. MEPMA PD, K Purushotham, ICDS official E Premalatha, forest settlement officer Krishnaveni, Child Welfare Committee chairperson K Anitha Reddy, excise CI Durga Bhavani and others were present. The International Women’s Day was also celebrated at TSNPDCL head office, Kakatiya University, KU SDLCE, Pingle Womens’ College and Warangal Police Commissionerate on the day.
