Women Empowerment Cell
"When development is not en-gendered it is endangered"
Women are always treated as receiving end in the society. In every sphere of life they are denied for their social, cultural, economic, legal, political and religious rights. Haryana especially Mahendergarh having second worst sex ratio after Jhajjar need urgent sensitive approach from knowledge society. University being a knowledge hub has responsibility of social sensitivity and awareness on its shoulders. Keeping in view the vision and mission, Central University of Haryana under the visionary leadership had established Women Empowerment Cell in 2012. The Cell has following objectives (although the list is not exhaustive) -
To provide empathetic counselling environment for psychological empowerment to students and local women about their problems which they cannot share easily.
To analyze underlying causes through research to women discrimination and to generate awareness.
To development gender sensitive curriculum according to regional and national demands.
The forms of various government schemes for the welfare of women and girl child will be available free of cost and members will help to fill those forms.
To combine knowledge and practice by facilitating discussion of the latest in analysis and approaches to women's equality from both academic and community-based participants, from a rich variety of perspectives – by creative deconstruction of women's experiences.
To sensitise the women students of University and society about their individual growth like nutrition, health, hygiene and sanitation.
To facilitate the economic empowerment of women by meeting with various self-help groups, NGO's and other government organisations.
