The “Women In South Asia” quiz is part of Prajnya PSW’s public education work. Five Chennai women’s colleges participated–Ethiraj, MOP Vaishnav, Queen Mary’s, Stella Maris and WCC. M.O.P. Vaishnav’s team won and Stella Maris came in second. Enthusiasm was great among teams and audience.
The objective of the quiz was to raise the consciousness of young women today about women and their crucial contribution in society, particularly in politics and security. The quiz covered a range of issues and personalities in diverse fields such as politics, arts, literature, culture and sports.
This event was made possible by several Friends of Prajnya. Prizes were donated by Manara Learning and PK & Mangala Ayre. Prajnya also used Manara’s space for the venue. Uma Vangal provided snacks.
Prajnya also ran a companion email/online quiz and two people sent in all-correct entries! No prizes for them, however.
