Just between us: Day 14

On the 8th of December, Dr. Swarna conducted a multi-generational conversation with the members of the University Women's Association, where she encouraged them to sit in pairs of different generations, and share experiences and learning relating to gender violence and how to cope and combat the same. We had about 6 pairs of women, who sat in pairs at first and then evolved into a larger group discussion. The older generation spoke about how things have changed from how they were brought up, and the mechanisms they used to protect themselves from harassment and violence. The younger generation spoke of what they did now, and listened and took back lessons on how to combat harassment. We ended with a discussion on what we can do to help, and a promise to come back soon.
