Dr. Trishanjit Kaur Of Punjab University In India Discusses The Role Of Women In Her Native Country

Dr. Trishanjit Kaur, of Punjab University in India, spoke on the topic "The Role of Women in 21st Century India: Traversing the Crossroads of Tradition and Modernity" on Wednesday, June 9, on the Ferris State University campus.

Sponsored by the Diversity and Inclusion Office, International Center, Global Initiative for Cultural Awareness, FLITE and the Department of Languages and Literature, Kaur led an engaged group of students, faculty and staff in a discussion about women in India.

As the title of the presentation indicated, the discussion revolved largely around the role of women in modern India in contrast to earlier times.

As promised, the question-and-answer portion of the presentation was engaging and entertaining as a number of topics were addressed relative to the role of women and the interactions between men and women in India.

Those in attendance also had an opportunity to enjoy pizza and pop, for free, as part of an event that featured a good cross section of the campus community.
