Women should become self-reliable by getting educated themselves, said former Minister Prof. B.K. Chandrashekar. He was speaking at the inauguration of Cultural, Literary and Sports Forum at the JSS College for Women in city this morning.

Referring to the words of Swami Vivekananda’s speech at the World Religions Summit held in Chicago, BKC said that Vivekananda in his speech had said that women should learn self defense to protect themselves.

He said that education is the only means through which women can attain proficiency.

BKC added that it had become ver difficult for a single woman to walk on the streets and hence it was a must for them to learn self defense to protect themselves.
