In the wake of devastating floods in Kerala, people from all corners of the country are extending helping hands. Among them, women's groups from Ghaziabad, under the initiative of 'Pinkishe,' have taken a unique and crucial step by focusing on the needs of women. Recognizing the urgent requirement for sanitary pads, Pinkishe has sent 111,000 pads to Kerala.

She also noted the support from the Canadian group Red Bindu, formed by Indian NRIs, which is assisting in this effort.

The Women's Cell in the MIEEE organized a program on International Women's Day with the theme "Modern Women in Traditional World and Women in Technology." During this event, Surbhi Agrawal from IBM and Nidhi Bhakuni from the Pinkish Foundation inspired students and teachers on the subject of women's empowerment and the role of women in technology. Surbhi Agrawal from IBM stated that many positive steps have been taken in the Indian Constitution, and numerous constitutional measures have been made for women's safety to eliminate gender inequality in India. However, alongside the constitutional provisions, all forms of discrimination or inequalities will persist. But, in reality, change is only possible when men's mindset is changed. It will require the cooperation of parents and schools to initiate this change. Both family and schools play a crucial role in a child's development, so it's necessary for them to come together and discuss matters properly so that gender equality can be practiced in both home and school environments. Schools and parents should impart knowledge to children about various aspects of upbringing and practices along with gender sensitization, especially about gender equality.
