The deeply ingrained social malady of gender-based discrimination has been plaguing Indian society for an extended period. Overcoming this sensitive issue has been a protracted and arduous battle against the potent structural and male-centric forces of society. Despite women comprising almost 50% of the population, they continue to suffer from a dearth of equal opportunities to foster their all-encompassing personality development through education, sports, and career paths, among other areas. This is a flagrant contradiction to the principle of gender equality enshrined in the Indian Constitution's Preamble, Fundamental Rights, Fundamental Duties, and Directive Principles. The Constitution not only confers equality upon women but also authorises the state to implement affirmative action measures in their favour.
Consequently, women’s empowerment is one of the key factors in determining the success of development in the status and position of women in the society. The college took an initiative on women’s empowerment, realising that it was all about making focussed efforts towards not just physical or psychological but complete personality development involving medical counselling, sex education and laws on women’s rights, etc.
To fulfil this objective, a society named ‘Sashakt’ was set up in 2003 with an aim towards the welfare and development of the female students and faculty members by providing equal rights and opportunities; and a platform for growth, ensuring their progress.
Sashakt works with the following three objectives:
To fulfil these objectives Sashakt organises following activities
