Seminar on Gender Justice- Breaking Stereotypes, Discriminations and Prejudices by MNLU, Nagpur [Oct 15-16]: Deadline- Sep 15


  • The Centre for Gender Justice Studies is an endeavour of the Maharashtra National Law University, Nagpur to respond to the emerging regime of rights of different genders and their protection granting them the liberty for the full realization of their basic rights.
  • Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. It is important to observe that sex is a biological manifestation of an individual, while gender is a social tag that is based on certain pre-defined norms. The Constitution of India enshrines principles of equality before the law and that all should be given equal opportunities, but fighting the odds of discrimination and prejudices is still a long way.
  • Moreover, Goal 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals 2015 envisages gender equality by the year 2030 and to achieve the same, the persistent obstacles must be fought with unwavering spirit. To achieve overall development, the marginalized genders must engage socially, economically and politically on a larger level and that is the most effective manner through which they can carve an equal space for themselves on the stage.
