India TV and MxMIndia announce self-defence workshops for women in media agencies

Much as the government is working on tough laws to act as a deterrent on excesses against women, after the gangrape of a 23-year-old last month, doubts have been raised about the safety for women working till late.

 

Given that the media often requires working at odd hours and the fact that women constitute a sizeable ratio amongst employees in the sector across the country, MxMIndia spoke with several women in media (on- and off-the-record) for a two-part article on MxMIndia.com (here and here). Our conclusion was that there is an urgent need for an aggressive and ongoing exercise to get women trained in self-defence.

 

MxMIndia then conceived a special initiative for media companies so that women can be better equipped in case of an eventuality.

 

As a first step, India TV and MxMIndia have got together for Self-Defence Workshops for women in media agencies in Mumbai, Delhi NCR and Bengaluru. The workshops start this week and will conclude by the month-end.

The workshops are being facilitated by media activations firm Pure Media. For details: Alok Kapuria (Telephone: 9892832681)
