Women Empowerment Cell

Professional Group of Institutions has established a Women Empowerment Cell in the college campus to empower girl students, to enhance understanding of issues related to women and to make the college campus a safe place for women students. With a view to take up women’s issues and problems, the cell aims at creating awareness of their rights and duties. It also provides a platform for women to share their experiences and views regarding their status in the society. Added to it suggestions for improvement and empowerment among themselves has been given.

The very need for women’s empowerment is to arise from the subordinate position. They have been treated for a long time in the same way. The empowerment has been felt as a tool to bring about the changes in their socioeconomic conditions.
