  • 1.Rape is carried out to satisfy sexual need. 2.Rape becomes a way to compensate for these underlying feelings of inadequacy and feeds their issues of control, dominance, authority and capability. 3. Sometimes ethnic cleansing was aimed by communal forces to push out minorities by means of murder and rape. “ नारी बोझ या जिम्मेदारी.........कब तक सहेगी ये अत्याचार बेचारी ” During the communal riots at the time of partition of India, large number of Hindu, Muslim and Sikh women were abducted and openly raped. There were tens of thousands of rapists belonging to all these communities exacting what they saw as communal vengeance. The reasons for these rapes was an overt assertion of their identity and a simultaneous humiliation of the other by ‘DISHONOURING' their women.
  • 1. Education is becoming costlier day by day in our society. So, instead of girl, a boy is given preference for receiving education in the home because a boy is considered support of old age. 2. Marriage of a girl becomes a burden on her parents. Dowry is so scaring that parents are not sure whether after giving good dowry their daughter will have a comfortable married life. 3. It is important that a girl is not underrated in comparison to a boy. Sense of security has to be created in the girl. 975 963 958 940 930 910 850 900 950 1000 2011 2001 1991 1981 1971 1961 NFANTICIDE: “It’s not just an atrocity, it’s an OBAMANATION ”
  • The development of any nation or region is indicated by the level of education and that too of both genders. That is why education for all’ is strongly recommended and focused on by our government. India has made a considerable progress in this sector and with all the efforts the literacy rate grew to 74.04% in 2011 from meager 12% in 1947 , but the female literacy levels according to the Literacy Rate 2011 census are 65.46% where the male literacy rate is over 80%. The negative attitude of parents towards the girl child and her education is one of the major reasons of low female literacy rate in India. Poverty is the root cause of many problems in India and also of low female literacy rate.. h Another barrier to female education in India is the lack of female teachers. As India is a gender segregated society, it is a very important factor in the low female literacy rate in India. In most of the rural areas lack of easy accessibility to school is another reason for low female literacy rate. मुझे पढ़ने दो, मै पढ़ना चाहती हू…..

  • OUR INSPIRATION ‘Now every man thinks twice before harassing a girl from our village’ When she lost her father at the age of 10, Vaibhavi Ulmale’s mother told her “Big girls don’t cry’’. She turned that into a motto. At 18 now, she has made Sidur, her village in Maharashtra’s Chandrapur district, a safer place for girls. Ulmale is leading a squad of girls in her village with the help of UNICEF, teaching them to fight sexual harassment and child marriage. Thanks to their efforts, these incidents have come down in the village. Ulmale says she found her strength after a harrowing stalking experience. A few years ago, she was stalked by a 50-year- old man. Ulmale was shocked at his audacity: he was known to her parents. Like most victims of sexual harassment, she first blamed herself. But later she found she wasn’t the only one. Other girls too were complaining. “That’s when I decided to stop being a victim,’’ she says. Ulmale convinced her friends to fight their tormentor. One day, the sight of the man teasing her friend infuriated her. “We chased and hit him with our fists and our bags. It was empowering,’’ she says. The incident drew the attention of other villagers who forced the man to leave the village. “The news spread and now every man thinks twice before harassing a girl from our village,” says a proud Ulmale. Their squad strengthened. With the help of Unicef’s ‘Deepshikha’ group, they learned about women’s rights and started campaigning against child marriage. Ulmale managed to stop the marriage of her 17-year-old friend. “We convinced the parents to wait till the boy and girl reached the legal age of marriage,’’ she says. For her efforts, Ulmale was honored by the UNICEF ‘Navjyoti’ award last year.
  • Implementation of our innovative ideas in a society We visited a society, RADHEY SHYAM PARK SOCIETY, in Delhi where we meet Mr. Bobby Kapoor, RWA of society, and aware him with our innovative idea. We tell him to make a group of women that handle all the activities related to women and any women in the society having any kind of problem can contact this group. Also we suggested them to organize cultural functions like dance competition , singing , cooking , get together's , etc… , so that the hidden talent of women in the society get enhanced. we are very thankful to this society for considering our ideas and implementing them in their society.

Vineet Verma “to organize cultural get together for the female faculty and the wives of the other faculty once in a month “. According to us this will help not only the female faculty but also the wives of the faculties , among whom mostly are housewives , to show there talent in front of everyone and we are very thankful to our college management for implementing this idea on our demand. We had also organize a seminar in our college for awaring about women empowerment and in this our faculty also participated. Implementation of our innovative ideas in our college
