Dr. Shoiba Saldana addressed the High School children about Gender Sensitization. She first put forth many questions on safeguarding themselves against sexual harassment and any other kind of violence. When they came up with some of the ways in which they become prey to the attackers, she explained how the sexual attackers attract the children slowly by using their techniques. She advised them being in a group with friends is a way of safeguarding themselves against the attackers. Instead of fearing or worrying they can ignore the problems they face in the public places and later they can inform to the elders at home if it becomes intolerable. She added that the body language of an individual plays very important role in protecting oneself from violence. She concluded by saying that boldness is very important for a person to protect himself/herself from any kind of violence.
