WOMEN EMPOWERMENT CELL
The empowerment of women is vital and it increases their ability to influence changes and contribute
to a better society. Empowerment is inspiring women to develop the courage to break free from the chains of superstitions and patterns.
Women of today are pragmatic, intelligent and thoughtful and many aspire to be self independent and economically stable and therefore there is every need to empower them. Govt. P.G College for Women, Rohtak being a knowledge hub has within itself the liability of creating social sensitivity and awareness among the students. Thus, keeping in view of the Vision, Mission and Values of our college, we have instituted the Women Studies and Development Cell. The Women Cell of G.P.G.C.W, Rohtak has a dual responsibility of not only handling the cases of grievances of female students on campus but also taking the initiative to organise activities on women empowerment. Moreover, it intends to create awareness and understanding about women's issues, gender discrimination and sexual harassment and also help students to become aware of legal options available in such cases. The cell stands for facilitating women empowerment through guest lectures,
seminars, workshops, inter class competitions, awareness programmes and other welfare activities.
Our college magazine VANDANA also offers a creative and dynamic space for students to express their opinions
and concerns about inequalities surrounding us.
The Women Empowerment Cell is working in the college under
the convenorship of Dr. Meenu Nain.
Other members of the committee are:
Dr. Nirmala Kayat
Dr. Minakshi Saharan
Ms. Pooja Rani
Ms. Preeti Bansal
Ms. Neeraj Kadyan
Mr. Nishant Saini
Mr. Arjun Sharma
