At present times, women employees are seen in almost every establishment. But the discrimination against women still exists in various forms, particularly in the workplace. Thus, it is important to make today's women aware of their rights, make them informative and empower them to live their lives with dignity. For the said purpose, Women's Welfare Committee (WWC) IIT Bhubaneswar had organized a session on “Rights of Working Women" on 27.01.2020.
