more-in

The history of women’s progress is the foundation stone of the reformation movement in the State, Minister for Cooperation Kadakampally Surendran has said.

He was speaking after inaugurating a conference in connection with the valedictory of the ‘Women’s movements in renaissance’ exhibition organised by the Kerala State Literacy Mission Authority here on Monday.

The Minister said there were umpteen instances in the State’s history of women coming together to fight atrocities against them.

The State was also a model for others on women’s safety and giving them their due position owing to the results of such progress, he said.

However, there were attempts from certain quarters in recent times to deal a setback to the tradition of the women’s movements. The people would not forgive those behind such attempts, he said.

Social literacy

Kerala Pulayar Maha Sabha leader Punnala Sreekumar, who delivered the keynote address, said the literacy mission’s social literacy programmes should be encouraged.
