NEPALGUNJ: A three-day self-defence training for women and girls has been launched here since Friday on the occasion of the 111th International Women’s Day.
Nepalgunj Sub-metropolitan City Main Program Committee has organized the training.
Addressing the inaugural function of the training, Senior Superintendent of Police Kiran Rana said it would be helpful in self-defense if women are physically and mentally active.
She called on the women never to think themselves as inferior to males as they are created strong persons.
Nepalgunj Sub-metropolis deputy mayor Uma Thapamagar hoped that the training would instill self-confidence among the trainee women and girls for their self-defense.
She said, although the state has made several provisions for the security, inclusion, participation of women, the implementation aspect was weak.
