Women’s study centre of SGT University , Gurugram is a wholly integrative centre within the University spanning several critical topics across the disciplines, from social theory to biomedical advances. The aim of the centre is to increase our capacity for rigorous gender analysis and to promote awareness of its relevance in historic, economic, political, social, and scientific contexts. It also aims at bringing women life in its completeness to the villages and help people solve their own problems in the changed social norms instead a solution being imposed on them from outside. The emphasis would be laid on a scientific study of the village problems before a solution was attempted. The acquired knowledge through the extension works of the centre which gives equal emphasis on the action-oriented programs toward social development , along with identifying and involving sensitive persons, including those from the community around , who are committed to play significant role, in bringing about equal participation of the women is obviously one aspect but empowering women and thereby bringing imbalance women in the sense of equal sharing and cooperation as equals.
Across Centres for women studies in India as well as Internationally, there are groups of people who are excited about their research and who are committed to multidisciplinary. Feminist techno science, culture studies, religious studies, migration studies, multicultural studies and creative writing, management studies, theatre studies, health studies and more, are all productive outputs of the endeavours of women studies enthusiasts.
With the establishment of Women’s Study Centre at SGTU, a new era of social orientation and responsibility has been unveiled in this prestigious University. We at the centre firmly believe that we can make a difference to existing gender equations in multi-disciplinary spheres.
