Gender Sensitization

Dr. Farida Virani conducted a Gender Sensitization and Prevention of Sexual Harassment workshop at the Bombay College of Pharmacy, Mumbai. Over 200 students and members of staff attended the workshop. She covered the basic understanding of small sexual offenses which was essential for young generation. She smoothly differentiated between what is permissible and what is an indicator of sexual harassment through verbal communication as well as with the help of audio-visual aids. She slipped into the intricate details of PoSH Act 2013 and sensitized the crowd on how to prevent and prohibit sexual harassment to any gender and promote gender equality. Training was summed up by projecting light on the matters of respecting women and how it plays a critical role in building up a nation at large.
