Women in Kerala have the responsibility to protect the rights they have won after long battles, said K.P. Mary, CPI(M) State committee member here on Thurdsay.

Speaking at the Women's Day celebrations organised by the MG University Employees' Association, she said the struggles taken up by the progressive movements as part of their social reform campaigns had played a big role in the empowerment of women in the State.

She called upon women to continue their fight for equality of opportunity and job security by taking the leading positions in the trade and service organisations.

Meanwhile, celebration of a different kind marked the Women's Day celebrations in the town when a women's group of two-wheeler passengers ‘Women on Wheels' took out a two-wheeler rally.

The rally was flagged off by District Collector Mini Antony from Gandhi Square in the heart of the town.

The rally concluded at Santhibhavan at Muttambalam.
