Education Minister  Thokchom Radheshyam said that women’s inclusion in every societal platform is a necessity to define and fulfil the real essence of women empowerment. He stressed that the women need to be strong to participate in the events organised at local as well as higher level so that the movement of empowering women could begin from the grassroots levels and make it spread.
The Minister said that women or girls should be embraced as a key member in decision making of any societal or political events rather than limiting their task in welcoming of guest. He was speaking as the Chief Guest at – A Two Day National Seminar on Human Development and Gender organised by the Ideal Girl’s College, Akampat, Imphal East, with financial assistance from Department of Social Welfare and Department of University and Higher Education, Government of Manipur.
Th. Radheshyam asserted that research should be carried out focussing on certain factors of political, social, and economic with a focus to gender justice. It is necessary to check and encourage women and girls perform and participate in these factors. He said, human development can be achieved only when the environment is taken into consideration, since human cannot exist in isolation. No human can survive without nature, he added.
He opined that human need to open up more to become innovative and creative and guide the young minds towards the achievement of better and an inclusive society. He added that the teachers as well as the students need to inculcate a habit to question for enriching one’s thinking capability. Education, he explained is not just to get a degree but to enable one to think and work for the progress of the society and country as whole.
International Secretary, Council for Teacher Education, Prof. Nilima Bhagabati said that many obstacles need to be overcome by prioritising and emphasising equal treatment and participation of women. Participation by women from all spheres of life is important to empower women, she added.
Highlighting the theme of the Two Day National Seminar, Additional Director University and Higher Dr. L. Iboyaima said that human development is about giving people more freedom and opportunities to live lives they value. He said that gender identity is a social construct while sexual identity is biological.
The seminar has been organised to draw a road map for human development by focussing the importance of gender equity and removing all the discriminations and differences which are the hurdles of human development.
The inauguration was attended by the Principal of various colleges, professors, paper presenters and students. Later, the Minister accompanied by the Principal and staff of the college inspected the college premise.
