 ‘EQUAL TREATMENT OF BOTH GENDERS SHOULD START FROM HOME’

Nagaland State Commission for Women (NSCW) supported by the National Commission for Women (NCW) organised a legal awareness programme at Jalukie town under Peren district on October 22 in collaboration with Jalukie Town Women Welfare Organisation (JTWWO).
According to a DIPR report, NSCW chairperson, Khrienuo Tachu in her keynote address stated that Nagaland was a patriarchal society where men as protectors could play an important role against various discrimination faced by Naga women and girl child in the society.
Khrienuo pointed out that good patriarchy ensured a safe society resulting in less discrimination, thereby safeguarding Naga women and girl child.
She encouraged participants to develop entrepreneurial skills, to protect themselves from cybercrime and most importantly be educated to become self-productive and self-reliant.
She appealed to the participants to create a safe haven for women and an appeal was also made to the gathering to render equal treatment to both the boy and girl child, which she said, should start from every home.
Peren District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) panel lawyer, Italang Ramlia facilitated the session on “legal rights” where he highlighted various legal rights for women guaranteed by the Indian Constitution such as the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (prevention, prohibition and redressal) Act 2013, Law of Maintenance of Women in India, and rights available, etc.
Sakhi-One Stop Centre (OSC) Peren, centre administrator Asuni facilitated the session on “forms of gender-based violence; & services of One Stop Centre” where she gave a brief introduction on the functioning of OSC, various services available and how to avail them.
She also highlighted on Women Helpline 181, their importance and assistance provided to aggrieved women.
Voice of women should be heard in Naga pol issues
Chairmen union Jalukie president, Hauneu Haika spoke on the session “the way forward” where he encouraged participants that women should be given equal platform in every sphere.
Hauneu stated that many Naga men-folk were divided over tribal lines, political lines and for vested interests and in such a crucial stage where Naga political issues are being tabled and discussed, the voice of the women should also be heard.
He also urged the NSCW to create a platform for women leaders and women in general to be active participants in the ongoing Naga political issue.
Hauneu was of the view that every woman had the capability and potential to perform in bigger platforms.
The programme was chaired by NSCW secretary and joint secretary of the social welfare department, Bodeno S Colo while vote of thanks was proposed by JTWWO former president, Adai Iheilung.
The team visited Community Health Centre Jalukie and interacted with doctors and nurses. The NSCW also paid a visit to the women police station at Jalukie and interacted with the officials.
Later, the commission inspected the ongoing construction of Sakhi-One Stop Centre (OSC) located in the new DC complex, Peren along with the centre administrator of OSC and the district administration, where the various challenges of the OSC were discussed.
