The theme for this year is more relevant to a State like Manipur where there is the problem of insurgency and black laws like Armed Forces Special Powers Act, 1958 is in force on the pretext of counter insurgency, she said, adding that Manipuri women have been subjected to different forms of violence. In her presidential address, Dr Ibetombi expressed serious concern over increasing violence and crimes against women in Manipur.

While discrimination and violence perpetrated against women right from the moment a fetus in the mother’s womb is known to be a female has not been able to stopped, militarism has made the position of the women in Manipuri society all the more vulnerable, she said. In her address, Rose Mangsi pointed out that crime and violence against women is not allowed in Bible and it against the religion.
