Gender equality conference in Kerala from tomorrow

Thiruvananthapuram:  In a bid to promote gender equality in the country and hike female work engagement rates, the Kerala government is all geared up  to host  India’s  first  international conference in Thiruvananthapuram from November 12-14.

Issues ranging from citizenship, globalisation, work, governance, health, education, disability and the role of media will be tabled in the global conference whose primary theme is “Gender, Governance and Inclusion”.

The conference stresses on the urgent need for ushering in a new agenda for promoting gender equality.

Titled ‘International Conference on Gender Equality’ (ICGE -1), the three-day conference is being organised by the Green Park, an institution under the Kerala Government. Green Park revolutionised the issue of gender equality by introducing “She Taxi”. The model is now being replicated in various states across India.

The conference aims to necessitate an informative and interactive program that will include plenary sessions, thematic paper presentations and panel discussions by gender experts from across the world and poster presentations by young scholars.

Kerala’s draft policy on transgender rights is also set to be discussed in the conference.
