Punjab Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) organized a two-day training, sponsored by UNFPA, for Gender Management Information System (GMIS) Divisional Coordinators at its office in Cantt., Lahore.
Day 1 focused on an extensive discussion on Punjab Women's Helpline (1043). The Coordinators were apprised of the complaint registration process by legal experts from PCSW. This was followed by a discussion on how to tackle cyber crime cases. Emphasis was laid on the role that Divisional Coordinators can play in the redress mechanism.
Day 2 was dedicated to highlighting the importance of mobilizing men against harassment of women. The Coordinators were trained regarding engaging adolescent boys and young men in an endeavor to combat harassment of women as they prepare to conduct awareness sessions in various schools, colleges and universities across Punjab. Thank you.
