Naripokkho, a women's activist organization, has called for an end to discrimination against women, and establish equal rights for both genders—at the family and social levels. 

The organization has been working towards genders equality from the beginning of its inception, said speakers at a press briefing held at the National Press Club, at 11am, on Tuesday.

"We [women] want to be recognized as human beings, and we want to express our rights and desires just like any other human being," Rita Das Roy, project editor of Naripokkho, while addressing the briefing. 

"We want all discrimination and repression against women to stop," she further said. "At the same time, we want equal rights to be established all across the country."

At the briefing, Naripokkho announced a two-day conference in celebration of the organization's 35 years on October 12-13, which will be held at the Bangla Academy. 

Issues such as: women's rights, repression against women, freedom of expressing wants and desires, reducing discrimination against women, and instating equal rights for the two genders, will be discussed at the conference.
