Gender Based Violence

Lahore School of Economics Placement Office in collaboration with the Punjab Government Chief Minister’s Office team arranged a session on 22 March 2019 to educate the students regarding gender based violence. It was part of the Punjab Government’s awareness campaign. The session started off with explaining the different types of violence and the gender inequality that prevails in our society.  

Ms Nida Ch talked about the definition of violence; and what comes under this definition. She talked about general everyday life examples where women rights are violated and they are subject to harassment and how to deal with it effectively. She also talked about acid victims and forced marriages. It is a common practice in our society that women rights are violated without even recognizing that it is violence. The society as a whole needs to work towards providing a safe environment for women for economic growth and development of Pakistan.

Ms Fatima Khalid briefed the students about the initiatives taken by the Government of Punjab to improve justice delivery services for survivors of gender based violence and showed important helplines where any such issues can be reported.
