The 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), opened on 14 September,2021 under the theme

Building resilience through hope – to recover from COVID-19, rebuild sustainably, respond to the needs of the planet, respect the rights of people, and revitalize the United Nations

The United National General Assembly also launched the Feminist Plan for Sustainability and Social Justice, outlining how to use the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis to shape a better, more gender equal and sustainable world with emphasis on including women’s voices and leadership.  Thus, the realization of women’s rights and gender equality is crucial for sustainable development.

The international momentum for promotion, protection of Women’s rights coupled with Gender equality initiatives has percolated to national level mandating effective redress of violations of human rights. Within the frame work of the Indian democratic polity, the laws, development policies and plans have aimed towards advancement of women rights and gender equality. Hence, the need to accentuate women’s rights emanates from the inter-linkages between Gender inequality and human development wherein as per the Global Gender Gap Report 2021 India ranks 140th out of 1506 countries in-spite of pro-women laws and constitutional tenets of affirmative action alternatively positive discrimination in favour of women.  The Constitution of India embodies the principle of gender equality, in the Preamble, Fundamental duties and the Directive Principles. However, women continue to face discrimination, harassment consequentially, violation of their rights. The need of the hour is to develop appropriate strategies to eliminate any form of discrimination against women so that women can participate equally in all walks of life .

This Virtual National seminar will throw light on several issues and challenges faced by women with special reference to post pandemic era and discuss the needs for the advancement of women in all walks of life. Further the seminar invites suggestions from the intellectuals of the society for the empowerment and development of women, to combat discrimination and violence against women.
