About WDC

SLC, in its efforts to sensitize the students and the faculty towards gender equality and harmony, has formed the Women Development Cell (WDC) in the academic year 2015-16. The important events organized and initiatives taken by this Centre has evidently opened the minds of the students to newer ways of thinking. WDC has taken up cross-cutting issues related to professional challenges and social anomalies etc.

The cell is a forum for debate, interaction and meditation on a range of issues concerning gender, sexuality, inequality, discrimination, empowerment, crime against women. The WDC aims to create awareness around gender issues, injustices against women and facilitate an atmosphere free of gender discrimination and prejudices on the campus. It not only provides platform for deliberation and dialogue but also initiates the process of resolving gender perceptions prevalent in contemporary times.

To accomplish these goals, the cell holds year-round activities such as seminars, symposiums, film screenings, workshops on gender sensitization, street plays, self-defense camps, public reading sessions to engage students in discussions on matters concerning gendering of people and spaces, denial or limited access to education, sexual and reproductive wellbeing and rights, oppressive practices and customs, sexual exploitation in public and private sphere, safety in public conveyance and suppression of women's voices in civic and private realm.

WDC, in collaboration with Internal Complaints Committee (ICC), has been conducting workshops, counseling sessions, film screenings, and nukkad naatak for both students and staff members. WDC and ICC also organises workshops separately for students, teaching faculty and the office staff on "Gender Sensitization" by various eminent personalities specializing in this area. Both WDC and ICC teacher members regularly attend workshops and training programmes organized by the WSDS, University of Delhi and other such agencies. WDC has started gender counseling on bimonthly basis from 2016-17 session so as to provide a forum to students (both girls and boys) where they can unhesitatingly articulate and clear their gender and other behavioral related queries.
