About the Conference
Saveetha School of Law, Saveetha Institute of Medical And Technical Sciences (SIMATS) is organising an International Conference on Women Empowerment.
There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.
Many people believe that women’s empowerment is a fancy term for feminism. Regardless of the good that feminist movements have achieved, many people don’t want to identify as feminists because of negative connotations associated with the word. Women empowerment is a tool to develop a nation.
Developing one sector of the society and remaining the other sector underdeveloped, won’t make any difference in the growth of the nation. We need to take each section of society together in the path of development. Empowering women is the main motto of the development department because an empowered mother with a child makes the bright future of any nation.
However, on a global level, women are still suffering from gender inequality and struggling with basic human rights like honour killings; child marriages; female genital mutilation; street harassment; rape; pay inequality; educational inequity, and more. In the modern world, women also have to deal with body-shaming, slut-shaming, and victim-blaming on a daily basis.
