Watsü Mungdang holds 22nd general conference at Mokokchung
Mokokchung, Aug. 27 (EMN): Watsü Mungdang, the apex women organisation of the Aos, held its 22nd general conference on the theme “Aotsür Jenmung” at town hall Mokokchung on August 27.
The conference was supposedly scheduled in 2020 but was postponed due to the pandemic. Dr. I Asongla Pongen, Founder of Library-cum-Theological Research Consultancy, Mokokchung was the main speaker at the conference.
Dr. Pongen said that women were always present and took prominent role in all aspects of life since time immemorial. She asserted that women are making progress and overtaking men in all areas. While keeping in view the great achievements and doings of women, she said that Ao women also lack in certain aspects.
“Ao women lacks confidentiality, they sometimes forget their identity and tend to make people take advantage of them when it comes to morality and many women also suffer in the economic field”, she said.
She also acknowledged the support women are receiving from men especially in the present age. She stated that her visions are to see women being given equal opportunity to participate and involve in the office of Ao Senden, the apex organisation of the Ao Nagas and being inducted as pastors and leaders in church bodies not just in words but in reality as well.
