The Assam State Commission for Women will organize a state level workshop on trafficking of women and girl children and another one on child marriage and its impact in January.

Talking to TOI, the member secretary of Assam State Commission for Women, Monideepa Borkataki, said, “We are going to organize these workshops in the month of January, in collaboration with the National Commission for Women. We also submitted a proposal to the government for organizing these workshops.”

These workshops are mainly organized to sensitize people regarding the increase in women and child trafficking and child marriage. There has been constant exploitation of women despite the implementation of laws and Assam is fast emerging as a major source of transit and trafficking of girls, she added.
