'Shout' for women empowerment'

 ‘SHOUT to achieve and get empowered’, advised by an American student Sangeetha Rajan, surprised a gathering of various girl students from school and colleges at a programme held at Sadividya Semi-Residential PU College in Mysore on Sunday.

The 16-year-old Sangeetha’s lecture helped to improve self-confidence among the students.

The meaning given for SHOUT by her was S — Speak up: She advised that the girls should shed their inhibitions and inferiority complex and learn to speak up thier mind and excel in their field of interests.

H — Help out: Every woman has a talent of her own and she should find a platform to display her skills.

Woman should extend helping hand for the same gender, and prove false that woman herself is an enemy of a woman, she said.

O — Overcome: Overcoming fear and hurdles of life is a challenge for woman and it is mandatory for women to know their rights and freedom for a bright future.
U — Unify: ‘Unity is strength’ explains the importance of unity and joining hands to achieve a goal is always successful. Women shining in all fields is a perfect example of the phrase, she said.

T — Take action: Bring all thoughts and projects into reality. Make use of the available infrastructure and resources and do not discontinue any attempt, she suggested.
Till date about 70 per cent of women are still reeling under poverty and 67 per cent are illiterate, Sangeetha lamented.
