Difficult Dialogues 2018 summit comes up with several recommendations for gender equality

Panaji, Feb 12 (UNI) Over the last three days leading international academics, policy makers, development experts, NGOs and grassroots gender workers got together in Goa for the Difficult Dialogues 2018 summit where they discussed and debated several key issues around Gender Equality – For Everyone’s Benefit?
Delivering gender equality for everyone’s benefit is a top priority for India as there has been gross inequality on the basis of gender discrimination over the years. It is this inequality that Difficult Dialogues aimed to address and the conference examined wide-ranging topics under the theme of gender equality and would now come up with white papers that could make a tangible difference. This year, the forum was held in partnership with University College London (UCL), Goa University (GU), the International Centre Goa (ICG) and Brookings India (BI).
Renowned academic experts from UCL such as Professor Sarah Hawkes who leads the UCL Centre for Global Health and Gender, Professor of Global Health David Osrin of UCL, Professor of Child and Family Policy Margaret O’Brien of UCL, and Professor of Global Health and Philosophy Sridhar Venkatapuram of King’s College Londonshared their vision for gender equality at the conference. Through engaging panel discussions, the speakers grappled with the crucial issue of how Indian gender constructs affect fundamental aspects of daily lives and citizenship. There were a dozen thought-provoking panels on topics related to gender ranging from the #MeToo movement, women in politics, science and technology, masculinity and violence, women and the law to trafficking, what works when aiming to transform gender norms and fatherhood.
