Banasthali Celebrates International Women’s Day IWD 2019 - Pragati Sharma with Memento

Banasthali Celebrates International Women’s Day IWD 2019 - Pragati Sharma with Memento

From mobile banking to artificial intelligence and the internet of things, it is vital that women’s ideas and experiences equally influence the design & implementation of the innovations that shape our future societies.

The theme for this year is Think Equal Build Smart Innovate for Change. It is known that innovation and technology provide unprecedented opportunities, yet trends indicate a growing gender digital divide and women are under represented in the field of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and design. It prevents them from developing and influencing gender - responsive innovations to achieve transformative gains for society.

The message for IWD 2019 from UN Secretary-General António Guterres goes as “Gender equality and women’s rights are fundamental to global progress on peace and security, human rights and sustainable development. We can only re-establish trust in institutions, rebuild global solidarity and reap the benefits of diverse perspectives by challenging historic injustices and promoting the rights and dignity of all. Let’s make sure women and girls can shape the policies, services and infrastructure that impact all our lives. And let’s support women and girls who are breaking down barriers to create a better world for everyone."

Mr.Mohammad Tarique Iqbal faculty Women's Studies & Research Centre Banasthali highlighted some key targets of the UN 2030 agenda: Ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and effective learning outcomes; ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care and preprimary education so that they are ready for primary education; End all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere; Eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, including trafficking and sexual and other types of exploitation; and Eliminate all harmful practices, such as child, early and forced marriage and female genital mutilation.

It is known that Nobel Prize is given for Physics, Economics, Medicine, Literature, Peace and Chemistry and that 8 Chemical Engineers are Nobel Laureates. Out of the 8, 7 are men Fritz Haber (Chemistry 1918), Carl Bosch (Chemistry 1931), Linus Pauling (Chemistry 1954 & Peace 1962), Giulio Natta (Chemistry 1963), Lars Onsager (Chemistry 1968), Mario Molina (Chemistry 1995), Martin Lewis Perl (Physics 1995) and one is woman Francis Hamilton Arnold (Chemistry 2018).

While a team of faculty Dr Gaurav Kumar, Dr Somen Jana and staff Subhash Jangid, Abhishek Pareek, Kamlesh Sharma, Binod Kr Sharma and Rajesh Gurjar enacted the roles of Chemical Engineering men Nobel laureates, Miss Pragati Sharma third year BTech Chemical Engineering student to a thunderous round of applause did a brilliant enactment of the woman chemical engineer Francis Hamilton Arnold which included the prize winning Innovation by Evolution lecture.
