Pointwise Outcome Report:
1.              A one-day International Conference on ‘Gender and Politics in Media and Literature’ was organised by the Amity School of Social Sciences and the Amity School of Communication on 10th February 2023.
2.              The event was convened by:
A . Prof. (Dr) Iti Roychowdhury, Director, Amity Institute of Social Sciences, ASCENT and ASL, and Dy. Dean Student Welfare and Campus Life, AUMP
Key-note speaker/speakers were invited to the event. They gave extensive lectures on Gender inequality and biases in the 21st century and the related issues as well as their impact on the development of the country. The depiction of a coy and submissive woman in Literature and Media has gained tremendous academic attention over the past few years. Media refers to anything that is used to reach out to people and Literature also is a mirror of society, hence the women’s depiction is not a promising one. The third gender and the discrimination that needs to be dealt with consideration were deliberated upon.
3.              The conference received congratulatory messages from Sh.Anurag Singh Thakur, Minister, Information and Broadcasting and Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India and Sh.Mangubhai Patel, Governor of Madhya Pradesh.
