In a first, the Delhi University is all set to host a three-day 'gender fair' from Thursday, where boys and men will stand shoulder to shoulder with girls and women to question and bust stereotypes associated with issues related to gender equality.

Speaking about the event, Akash, a volunteer associated with CFAR-Wajood initiative, on stopping domestic violence, said that the fair is for "connecting with youth in different parts of the city so that we stop being bystanders and do our bit to better to improve gender equality," PTI reported.
