As part of strengthening women’s collectives in East Khasi Hills to address gender based violence and violence against women, NEN Meghalaya conducted a capacity building workshop on ‘Women and Media’ on April 24 – 26, 2018 at Mawryngkneng Community Hall. The workshop was attended by 42 women leaders from 5 villages (Umphyrnai, Mawryngkneng, Pomlahier, Diengpasoh and Nonghali) under Mawryngkneng Block, East Khasi Hills. The programme capacitated the women leaders on understanding gender, gender based violence and how to use media as an advocacy tool to address social issues. It also gave them a platform to draft action plans for women’s groups of their respective villages.
