Strive to remove gender discrimination, police told

By Our Staff Reporter

CUDDAPAH, NOV. 27. Policemen must change their mindset towards women and strive to eradicate gender discrimination, the Cuddapah Superintendent of Police, V.C. Sajjanar, said on Saturday.

Addressing a workshop on `Immoral Trafficking Prevention Act, Juvenile Justice Act and child and women-related laws', he said police stations should be `women-friendly' and police personnel should address to the problems faced by women sympathetically.

Rights of women

Women and girls were being enlightened on their rights and to resist offers from middlemen, through the Regional Network Against Trafficking of Women, he said.

The police machinery, judiciary and education sector should not encourage patriarchism, the Velugu District Programme Manager, R. Rama Devi, said. Decrying the indecent portrayal of women in advertisements and television serials, she said it would adversely affect society.
