Women and the society need to play an active role in order to protect the rights of women, said Prof. Amita Dhanda, from Nalsar University, in her talk on the conclusion of ‘Gender and Law Fest’ at University of Hyderabad. She stated that when there is a collaborative effort between the society and law, both can mutually protect their rights.

The office of the Dean Students’ Welfare and Centre for Women’s Studies jointly organised a ‘Gender and Law Fest’ at University of Hyderabad, where they were a series of competitions on the directive of National and Debate Commission for Women, such as online quiz on the awareness of legal rights of women and a debate. The programme was coordinated by Prof Rekha Pande, head, centre for women’s studies and Dr G Padmaja, deputy dean, student welfare.

As a conclusion of this programme, a session was organised at CV Raman auditorium at University of Hyderabad where Prof Amita Dhanda participated as a chief guest and delivered a talk on ‘Failures of Legal Protection: Me too and More’.

In this talk she analysed the reasons for failure of both laws and society to protect the rights of women. Owing to the issues pertaining to topics like ‘#MeToo’ and others the harassment faced by women is openly discussed in the society. Yet, in order that enough justice is done to women from legal perspective too, she said that a woman has to enhance her legal awareness and improve her active participation.

Students as well as Faculty participated in the programme with enthusiasm and posed questions after the talk which were aptly answered and clarified by Prof Amita Dhanda. Prof Debashis Acharya, dean, Student Welfare and Prof Darla Venkateswara Rao, deputy dean Student Welfare and others participated in the programme.
