An awareness program was held on gender sensitivity to provide an understanding about these issues for the citizen forum members in the fisher cooperative society’s center on 29 of August 2014 in Trincomalee district. The  participants were able to shape their knowledge about the gender sensitivity.
There should be a balance between the woman and man in the family but most of Asian countries have the male based society. Same situation can be seen in the family even in Sri Lanka. There should be a good understanding about the responsibilities of man and women in the family. The rights which belong to man should have to women as the same situation and the same ways.
