“Intellectually, mentally, and spiritually, woman is equivalent to a male and she can participate in every activity.” – Gandhiji.
Women’s empowerment is the process in which women expand and recreate what it is that they can be, do, and accomplish in a circumstance that they previously were denied. It is the process for women to redefine gender roles that allows for them to acquire the ability to choose between known alternatives that have otherwise been restricted from such ability.
The women cell has been pressed into service for the empowerment of girl students. This service unit takes care of creating social awareness, justice and infuses courage and fortitude amongst the girls by undertaking certain socially useful projects for women empowerment, Women and justice, Female Health hazards etc. The Cell endeavors to alleviate the negative forces that confront women, both on the campus and in the city. The Women Cell handles issues related to women’s welfare.
