The Manipur State Commission for Women (MSCW) is set to submit its “Draft Gender Policy” to the government by the end of September. 

The announcement was made by MSCW chairperson, Salam Ulka, during the Commission’s 17th foundation day celebration at its office complex located at the DC complex, Imphal West.

Ulka emphasized the importance of gender equality in creating a progressive society. She remarked that the societal condition can only improve when both men and women are treated with equal respect and rights. 


She firmly believes that achieving an equilibrium between genders will significantly reduce violence against women and children. The “Draft Gender Policy” has been crafted with the vision of narrowing the disparities between men and women.

Providing an update on the commission’s activities, she revealed that they had dealt with 59 reported cases of violence against women. Out of these, 36 cases have been successfully resolved, while 19 remain ongoing.

A breakdown of the cases showed that 39 are from the general category, 10 from the Muslim community, 8 from Scheduled Tribes, and 2 from Scheduled Castes. 

Ulka expressed concern over the number of incidents against women and children, noting that despite the state being recognized for its respect towards women, the statistics are alarming.


Addressing the ongoing violence in Manipur, Ulka invoked the philosophy of “One Family, One Earth, One Future”, hoping for lasting peace in the region. To further the commission’s efforts, MSCW officials and representatives also visited various women’s homes to assess the situation first-hand.

The function was attended by Thumlip Tiningpham Monsang, Member, MSCW, Lourembam Dayabati Devi, Member, MSCW and T Chuongsin Koireng, Member, MSCW.

In connection with foundation day, the team of women commission visited the Needy Home of Langol Laimanai and relief camps at Imphal West district.
