About the Webinar
The aim of this proposed webinar is to focus on the nature of change in protection and safeguarding the reproductive rights of women in India. To spread as much awareness within the community.
Bihar is a state who is the least developed as compared to other states of India. The condition of women in India is also not up to the mark since most of the population of Bihar population are belonging to Villages. If we see the health profile of this state, then we come to know that Bihar has the lowest health profile. There are various reasons behind it and pregnancy is also one of the reasons behind it.
If we talk about the rights of women in the context of pregnancy in India there is no appropriate law for it. In about 70 years of Independence of India, women are working in many sectors parallel to the men.
