About the Conference:
Gender inequality has been the most pervasive form of inequality across the globe. Socially constructed norms have led to wide-scale discrimination and even expulsion of vulnerable gender, including women, non-binary and transpeople, from social, cultural, and economic life. Gender inequality has pervaded social, economic, educational, legal, and other institutions leading to gender gaps and underlining the need for immediate steps to ensure gender

Equality is the edifice on which constitutional values and ethos have been built. Constitution founding fathers recognized the importance of the right to equality for one and all in free and independent India and therefore, the right to equality was guaranteed as a fundamental right. Recognizing the need of ameliorating the vulnerable sections including the vulnerable gender, the Constitution of India provided protective discrimination in favour of the vulnerable gender. International instruments have also emphasized the right to equality irrespective of gender. Undoubtedly, gender equality and gender justice are the bedrock of a progressive democratic nation striving for sustainable and inclusive growth. However, despite the constitutional guarantees and international emphasis, the marginalized gender has been the victim of violence, crime, exploitation, and discrimination owing to the prevalent patriarchal power structures, gender stereotypes in society, and other economic, social, and cultural constraints. In this backdrop, RGNUL is organizing the two-day National Seminar on Fostering Gender Justice: An Assessment of Challenges and Strategies.
