About the Conference:

The Constitution of India cherishes the goal of gender equality. Today we live in a world of infinite and flowing internet and communication technology. The modern era has facilitated social change, cultural reproduction leading to redefinition of gender relations. Technology has facilitated gender equality and women empowerment by dissolving the old basis of discrimination.

In modern digital era, we get to see the two faces of the society where one side women are respected and on other they are exploited to the core.
