Inspired by our guiding motto that Women's Studies is a catalyst for change, we at the Centre remain engaged in bridging the gap between academic knowledge about women and their every-day life experiences. Innovative courses and seminars offered at the Centre and research conducted here aims at generating a functional knowledge base with the purpose of identifying hitherto under-used and neglected human resources for national growth.
