Recently Pathways students presented some compelling facts and stories about the changing role of women in their respective countries , including Afghanistan and Myanmar. 220 UG students, the Vice Chancellor and Heads of Departments at Port City University were mesmerised by this highly engaging , sometimes harrowing , account of the Pathways students experiences.
After the presentations there was a round table discussioninvolving a mixed gender audience of students from both AUW and Port City. Questions such as Where do you think gender stereotypes come from?and Is gender equality a concern for men?prompted a lively discussion involving both the round table participants and also the audience who were keen to ask questions and give their view points. This highly successful event could have continued for many hours over its allocated time and everyone left with a feast of food for thought to digest for many days to come.
