Seminar on crime against women ends

Himachal Pradesh State Commission for Women president Daisy Thakur said women were moving ahead in all spheres at national and international level, but majority of them were still victims of societal exploitation and indifference. She stated this at the concluding ceremony of the seminar on crime against women, organised at Government College, Sanjauli.
