Workshop on Safety of Women “ Know the tips to secure yourself”
The main aim of the workshop was to aware female students of AIMT to handle issues like eve teasing and voyeurism. The programme started with a speech by Mrs. Pallavi Baruah Guha, Coordinator of Grievance, Anti Ragging and Women Cell, AIMT who discussed various issues regarding the ongoing female molestations all around. She also made the students aware about the fact why taking up self-defense classes is beneficial to everyone and that it is a countermeasure that involves defending not only the health and well-being of oneself but also from harm. The use of the right of self-defense is in fact a legal justification for the use of force in times of danger
Our resource person who is an expert in the field of martial arts designed the course so as to make the female gender of the Institution more aware, prepared, and ready for any situation that may occur in everyday life. The students also participated in the session with great anticipation. Some of the faculty members also tried certain techniques as a safety measure.
Overall the workshop was commendable and the students showed great enthusiasm.
