The National Committee for Women in Aden in coordination with the Student Council of the University of Aden organized a workshop on the understanding of university students of the social gender.
The workshop, held during 15-16 December 2003, was funded by United Nations Population Fund, and attended by 60 students of both sexes from the Governorates of Aden, Lahj, Abyan, Al-Dhali', and Taiz.
The Workshop discussed a number of issues including the definition of gender in general, and relative to education and religion as it aims to present the student with a better understanding of such definitions.
It also aims to present women with enough proofs so they are better equipped to handle life in the workplace.
