Some rarely-discussed problems related to visually-impaired women were the highlight of a day-long workshop organised by the Bharathidasan University’s Department of Women’s Studies on its Khajamalai campus on Monday.

Titled “Reproductive and Sexual Health Rights, Challenges and Vulnerabilities of Visually Impaired Women in Tamil Nadu,” the workshop’s concluding session had writers Ambai and Ravikumar in attendance as special guests, besides Leema Rose of Holy Cross College and Radha Bai of Government Arts College for Women, Pudukkottai.
