CHIEF MINISTER Shivraj Singh Chouhan said media must take care of the solemn and sublime image of women while presenting reports and in display of advertisements.
He said women had a vital role in society and were considered a divine source of strength. Thus, media must carefully project the aspects of womanhood.
The Chief Minister was addressing a workshop on ‘Participation of women in media” organised by Tulika Socio-educational Cultural and Art Committee at Ravindra Bhavan here today. Noted writer Mridula Sinha presided over the workshop. A number of women journalists including Hindustan Times’ Vanita Srivastava were felicitated on the occasion.
The Chief Minister said women hold supreme positions in Indian tradition. “They are not feeble and rather symbolise Shakti (power), which is worshiped by all,” he said.
He stressed on increased participation of women in media to effectively raise gender issues. He said active women journalists needed encouragement.
He said the policy for public relations was being formulated and suggestions and conclusions of the workshop would also be incorporated in the policy. Chief Minister released Tulika souvenir and telephone directory Desh Ka Sandesh.
Mridula Sinha said the media must come forward to sensitively deal with the image of women and disseminate achievements by women in different fields.
Director Madhavrao Sapre Museum of Newspapers Vijaydutt Shridhar threw light on the history of participation of women journalists. Vinita Shrivastava of Tulika spoke on the activities of the organisation. Sanjeev Shrivastava also spoke on the occasion.
