A press release by the college stated that resource person, renowned writer, author, poet, Dr. Easterine Kire spoke at length on the theme and elaborated that “generation equality” involves prevention and ending violence against women and moving towards gender equality and empowerment of women. 

Keeping the thought of feminism in mind, she said the general perspective of generation equality might be thought of as a feminist agenda. Paraphrasing the Beijing Declaration of 1995, she explained that one should voice out the empowerment of women as the empowerment of society.
She concluded her discourse by saying that generation equality in “our context is a matter of practicing respect and balance”. 
Delivering a short speech, Deputy Commissioner (DC) Phek, Sachin Jaiswal supplemented that the seminar was an important discourse to spread awareness amongst the masses. 
For a progressive society, the DC said representation of women in politics was imperative, which he lamented was lacking in Nagaland. 
He also talked about various centres and schemes for empowerment of women and for protecting the dignity and ensuring safety of women in India. 
The keynote address was delivered by PGC principal, Dr. Vizovol Mekro. The seminar concluded with a vote of thanks by PGC assistant Professor, Dr. Thejotalu Nienu.
