Conference on Violence against women with women leaders

The conference on Violence against women with women leaders programme was conducted at 10.12.2015 in Arisdo at Madurai.

Now a day, women leaders counting was increase gradually, even though it is not enough to get women empowerment. Women leader should come forward to taking leadership ability in family and community. Normally have fear to take leadership ability in the matter of finance, because the earning member is men. But we should motivate women leaders to earning money to avoid unwanted fear on finance. Women should grow with leadership capability in family, this only lead to good family structure and create good future to their children. If the women take decision in family, the children also became very bold and brave to take decision in future.

The good strategy for women to take financial decision in family is to start microenterprises.  The very important strategy of microenterprises is marketing strategy, if they have clear idea on that, they should became a good business women. For that they should discuss them self about the team work, for instance, who is going to be collected raw materials, who is going to be in production, who are all the selling that product in market or in rural areas, like that they should discuss and work very hard in the field. The team members also change their roles periodically; these strategies will lead to earning money to livelihood. So women automatically come forward to take decision in family and community.
