The aim of the workshop was to sensitize the participants on gender issues, to help them be aware of gender biases and to help them resolve interpersonal conflicts arising from it. It also brought the patriarchal issue of men domination in the society and work culture. Besides, the students participated actively in the discussion and were appreciative about getting an opportunity to know and discuss gender sensitivity and implementation of the Sexual Harassment of Women in society. The workshop gave the students the new insight on how they view themselves to be equal as men and got the same opportunity to pursue their career and dreams. They also can stand for themselves for any challenges they face in the society. Thank you Mr. Benjamin for the great sharing and motivation!
