LTTE political head of women's wing, Thamilini, hoisted the Tamil Eelam national flag and the events started with a minute silence in rememberence of those lives sacrificed for the Tamil struggle.

Gowry Maniccavasagar, Commissioner of Northeast Province Labour Department, presented a research discussion on "Economy and Women."

This was followed by debates and discussions on selected women's issues in organized 'birds-of-the-same-feather' groups of the attendees to the conference. Second day's conference concluded with additional cultural events.

Resolutions related to women's issues are expected to be passed during the final day events, scheduled to be held in the LTTE controlled area. Colonel Karuna is also expected to be present for the final day events, sources said.
