The workshop started with an Ice- breaker. It was attended by both faculty and students who showed a lot of interest and enthusiasm. The understanding of gender was put forward and discussed in detail. The distinction between sex and gender was clarified. It was also put forward in a very open manner that this effort for gender sensitization is in no way to hurt the sentiments and feelings of people but an effort to create an alternative way to think and understand the issues around gender. Gender is specific to humans and connotes all the complex attributes ascribed by culture to human males and females. The issues around gender as a social construct were deliberated in detail. The negative impact of bio-logical determinism and its consequences for the development and growth of society was developed through mutual deliberations. The historical shifting of the position of women from an egalitarian perspective to subjugated position was put forward. The role of patriarchal mindset was also highlighted. The role of socially prescribed scripts in continuance of malpractices as a social compulsion was brought forward. The position of women not only as differently able but also differently valued was brought to attention. It was clarified that how subjugation of women has been taken as a normal practice and became a composite part of social norms and values. There were a few questions from the participants which were handled in a congenial manner. The faculty also joined in expressing their experiences. The workshop was appreciated but it was also pointed out that the time was very limited.
