Kuvempu University Vice Chancellor S.A. Bari inaugurating the two-day symposium on women’s awareness at Kuvempu Ranga mandir in Shimoga on Tuesday, 28th Feb. Karnataka State Women’s Commission Chairman C Manjula, Shimoga Urban Development Authority Chairman S Dattatri and others are seen. SHIMOGA: Kuvempu University Vice Chancellor S.A. Bari said the University will set up a women’s studies centre at Jnana Sahyadri campus which is likely to start functioning from the academic year 2012-13. Speaking after inaugurating the two-day symposium on ‘Women’s Awareness’ organised by Karnataka State Women’s Commission, Collegiate Education Department, Women & Child Development Department at Kuvempu Rangamandir here on Tuesday 28th Feb, he said the State government has been releasing ample funds for the progress of education sector for the past four years.
“We are in need of honest and efficient staff to run this centre.” He called upon eligible women to occupy higher positions in the field of education. He said the rise in number of missing girls in the society is a matter of concern. Karnataka State Women’s Commission should take proper measures in this regard at the earliest. Police should also join hands with the Commission towards tackling this. Expressing his concern over parent's careless attitude towards the education of girl children in rural areas, he said parents should overcome a notion that daughters are meant to be home makers. They should send their daughters to colleges without fail. Besides, they should never think that spending money for their daughters’ education is of no use as young girls do play vital role in building a healthy society as young boys. He said it’s a good sign that women are doing well in all fields despite the society’s careless attitude towards the education of girl children. In this way, women have shown that they are second to none. Speaking on the occasion, Karnataka State Women’s Commission Chairman C. Manjula said “there is a need to have discussions on problems of women in the current society. Besides, we need to find solutions to them.” She said the Commission has registered nearly 1,700 cases related to assault on women and the investigation is in progress. The missing girl's cases have been considered seriously. Apart from this, there is a need to discuss the issues related to portrayal of women in media. Collegiate Education Department Joint Director Natraj Urs said women are not getting expected assistance from judiciary in assault cases. Hence, there is a need to have discussion on alternative ways to tackle such cases. Women & Child Development Department Deputy Director Lakshmikantappa, Karnataka State Women’s Commission member Prameela, Shimoga Urban Development Authority Chairman S Dattatri, Collegiate Education Department Deputy Director Manjunath, former zilla panchayat member Gayathridevi were present on the occasion.
