Programme Objective

  • Providing students with an epistemological consciousness and spirit of inquiry along with intellectual diversity, rigor, and discourse of Gender Studies.
  • Sensitize the students about gender issues in society which help in engendering respect for gender equality and gender identities.
  • Motivate students to perform gender identities through gendered and cross-gendered roles such that not only they obtain a self-identification with one’s own gender but also an identification with the identities and experiences of other genders.
  • Enabling students to understand the role of gender in human biological and social existence, e.g., breaking social stereotypes which perpetuate oppression of one gender by the other; re-discover and improve human social relationships in love, sex, reproduction, and care; and re-organize the configurations of power in gendered relations.
  • Imparting skills in intersectional communication, inter-linking and cross-linking gendered subjects and communities, production and dissemination of gender-based research outputs, counselling and mentoring, prevention of gender-based violence, campaigning and fundraising, building accountability frameworks, and gender sensitization among social clusters and communities.
