Ladies’ Conference, Mysore.

The first Ladies’ Conference in Mysore was held on the 18th afternoon in the Maharani’s College Hall, Mysore, under the Presidency of Mrs. Chandrasekhara Iyer. About 200 ladies attended. The proceedings began with an invocation song tastefully rendered by four young ladies of the High School classes. Mrs. Chandrasekhara Iyer then delivered her Presidential address emphasising the necessity for the education of women and the necessity of holding Ladies’ Conferences at least once a year to discuss and enunciate their views on questions affecting the well-being and advancement of women. The first resolution was moved by Mrs. K.D. Rukmaniamma, B.A., Superintendent of the Maharani’s College in a masterly speech. The great obstacle to higher education of women is the custom of early marriage which necessitated the withdrawal of girls at an early age from schools. This custom should be abolished.
