Karachi, October 31, 2017 (PPI-OT):Working women are still considered to be bad in our society, therefore majority of highly educated women who could actively play a vital role in our national and societal growth couldn’t do so. Only through education, a woman becomes fully aware of her legal rights and its provision.
Spreading awareness and education in the society will be vital in order to cope with the negative norms in the society. These views were expressed by KU Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Muhammad Ajmal Khan while delivering his address at the seminar and poster exhibition for awareness and prevention of violence against Women organized by Centre of Excellence for Women Studies, University of Karachi (KU).
Vice Chancellor lauded the efforts of Dr. Nasreen Aslam Shah and students, adding that such events must be held regularly. He also inaugurated the poster exhibition held on the occasion. “Proper training of women must be ensured, we will hold trainings of our students in the end of this semester”, Dr. Nasreen Aslam Shah added.
SP Shehla Qureshi also participated in the program and added that women must be provided adequate awareness to empower them.
