The resource person highlighted the various fundamental rights, fundamental duties & directive principles of women. She insisted that the constitution not only grants equality to women but empowers the state to adopt measures of positive discrimination in favour of women. The speaker narrated that the Women in this country are unaware of their rights because of illiteracy and oppressive tradition. The speaker explained that how states must popularize the laws, and explain the rights clearly to the public, in order to prevent ignorance, or misconceptions originating in popular myth, about the laws.
