International Women's Day, Chandigarh 17th March 2012



International Women’s Day, Chandigarh on 17th March, 2012:-

We organized the first kind of the International Women’s Day at Auditorium, Chandigarh Club Ltd, Sector 1, Chandigarh on 17th March 2012.

This was a raising awareness and creating a positive space in society for disability and women’s issues. The deaf women are doubly disadvantaged first by disability and second with the added vulnerability of their gender. The seminar has explored these issues and a number of senior deaf women activists and participants from Chandigarh, Mohali, Panchkula, Ambala, Rajpura, Patiala, Ludhiana and other parts of Punjab and Haryana had been participating. We saw a gathering of around 75 deaf women.


The seminar started with the welcome note by Mrs. Suvidha Jain, Woman Secretary of Chandigarh Deaf Friendship Club. Mrs. Rupinder Kaur, Woman Secretary of Chandigarh Deaf Friendship Society shared the powerpoint presentation about the deaf women who succeeded. Mrs. Sonia Sodhi, Deaf Woman Committee of Patiala Deaf Friendship Club, Mrs. Sangeeta Sharma, Deaf Woman Committee of Chandigarh Deaf Friendship Club & Mrs. Roopa Ramaiya, Education Coordination of The Deaf Way Foundation, Punjab shared the powerpoint presentation about the deaf women issues. Mrs. Reena Jain & Mrs. Vandana Varshney, NAD’s North India Deaf Woman Committees shared explaining the several rapes of deaf women in India and needed all deaf women to voice against the rape and stand what they can do for their own women rights.


Mrs. Meeta & Mrs. Mansi, Deaf Woman Committees of Ludhiana Deaf Friendship Club have performed the mimes about women issues.


Wish them a successful in their fruitful works for the future.
