Asking state women's commissions to act as agents of social change, President Pratibha Patil on Thursday said the bodies should create awareness about implementation of laws relating to women.

At a meeting with National Commission for Women chairperson Girija Vyas and representatives of all state commissions here, Patil said all women at panchayat level should be mobilised and provided information regarding laws.

Women, including educated women, should not tolerate violence and exploitation. The fight for their right should take the shape of an all-India movement, she told the representatives.

Appreciating the role played by the NCW, the President said the chairpersons of state commissions should act as the agents of social change.
