A session on Laws and Rights related to women was arranged by Soroptimist International Bombay Chembur in association with Stree Mukti Sangathan for the mothers of students studying in a school at Chembur, Mumbai. The resource person Ms. Rajashree Damle enlightened the participants on the various issues faced by women and the prospective solutions and guidelines to tackle them through law. There was active interaction and participation from 150 mothers who attended the session.

A similar session with Women Development Cell of Mahatma Education Society – Pillai College of Education and Research, Chembur and Stree Mukti Sangathana, Chembur, Mumbai was organized on ‘Women’s Laws in India’ on 19th December, 2019. The resource person for this awareness campaign was Advocate Rajashri Damle. She oriented them with the principle of gender equality which is enshrined in the Indian Constitution in its Preamble, Fundamental Rights, Fundamental Duties and Directive Principles. She emphasised that the Constitution not only grants equality to women, but also empowers the State to adopt measures of positive discrimination in favour of women.It was a very informative and interactive session which ended on a positive note of holding such more sessions on ‘Women’s Laws’ for women empowerment.
