Digital revolution was proving to be a double-edged weapon against women. ‘‘On one side, it is providing tremendous benefits to women. On the other, its misuse is violating their human rights. It is aggravating conventional forms of violence like trafficking and female foeticide.

Dhaliwal, S.M. Bhasker of the office of controller of certifying authorities, Government of India and S.I. Ahson of JMI University also spoke on the occasion.
