Women respect & dignity is our responsibility. Government has 24 Pro Women Laws to protect Women from GBVs. There is dire need to be enactment & implementation.

Its duty of teachers to make aware students & community to bring healthy environment, safe from GBV & early child Marriages, we should break trends & odds, to adopt good practices of civilized nations. Age does matters, un-mature & mature has great difference of mind sets, thinking, learning & doing, so that we should encourage mature aged marriages rather than under aged marriages. MR.
