Dr Nandini C Sen, Associate Professor, Bharti College (Delhi University) observed that discrimination against the fairer sex is a reality although people prefer to close their eyes on the issue and claim 'all is well'. She observed that there should be intimate conversations on such themes on a regular basis so that the communities are sensitised adequately. Ms Ritu Kalra, General Manager, HR, Indian Spinal Injuries Centre talked about gender issues in the healthcare sector. Dr Amit Sareen, Officiating Director, ASM, observed that physical barriers should be broken before the mental ones. This may enable the women to access public spaces more freely and attain empowerment in the true sense.
