Chief Guest of the meeting, Deputy Commissioner Yasmin Parveen Tibriji said, “Women have been able to come to today’s position because women like Begum Rokeya have protested and struggled. The picture of violence against women in society has to be changed. That’s why a change of mindset is very important. The distorted mentality towards women in the society that we are witnessing is very frustrating. Attitudes towards women need to change. In this case, from the grassroots level, everyone should actively participate and come forward responsibly, so everyone has no alternative to work collectively and actively.
