Forum's plea

TIRUCHI, MARCH 11. The Tamil Nadu Women's Federation has urged the State and Central Governments to take steps to check trafficking of women and children for sex trade and other hazardous labour.

A resolution to this effect was adopted at a seminar organised by the federation on occasion of the International Women's Day in the city recently.

Urging the governments to provide relief and rehabilitation packages to the tsunami victims, it also sought State help in preventing portrayal of women in bad light in the mass media and demanded reservation for women in all sectors.
