About the Seminar

Inequality along the line of gender has been a persistent problem in India. The severity of the problem is more because of gender stereotype present in society. Media the conscious keeper of society is also not untouched with gender biases. Inclusiveness is furthest not only in the internal set up of organization but also in the content being aired by Media.
