International Women’s Day celebrated at VIT
International Women’s Day is not about asserting the dominance of one gender over the other. Conversely , it’s christened to commemorate the contribution of women in the socio-political sphere as well as in global peace and security, to celebrate their very existence and to express our gratitude for their sheer presence in our lives.
With the same agenda in mind , VIT set out to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th march 2015 by conferring the Lifetime Achievement Award on Professor MA Vijayalakshmi, Director of the Centre for Bio-Separation Technologies(CBST) for her contribution to research and academics to mark the International Women’s Day.
Participating in the function , Gynaecologist Kamala Selvaraj advised women to learn karate or some other form of self-defence to protect themselves. She also emphasised on the fact that A woman is the epitome of tenderness, care, and wisdom and that we should love and value them. Also, a woman should never compromise with her individuality and strive to hone her skills.
Vit Chancellor G Vishwanathan added that Women should be given equal opportunities in the field of education and that they should refrain from early marriages.
In Addition to that, A lot of events and games were also organised to commemorate WOMENHOOD as a part of which all the female faculty and students who won were also bestowed with prizes.
