In her inaugural address, Pi Marli Vankung has highlighted various initiatives that are taken up by the Government on Gender Equity related issues. On advocating the importance of awareness campaign, she had expressed her disappointment that most of the initiatives on Gender Equity are largely unknown to the general public in Mizoram, till date ." It is very important that men have to accept the fact that women and men are equal. A woman has every right to have a sense of security that a man enjoys in a society", she said. She had also hinted that lack of awareness on these initiatives could also be the reason why there is no known complaint relating to Sexual harassment of Women at the Workplace in Mizoram.
