'Sabala' celebrates womanhood

 The event was meant to create awareness and sensitise the students and the faculty on the Challenges before Indian Women.

The programme was unique as it was conducted through plays enacted by students, preceded by a narrative and was finally thrown open for discussion on the themes portrayed through the plays. Dr K G Uma, Coordinator of the Centre, presented a preview of the workshop and the role of the UGC in weaving gender equity into  the higher education system. Prof Shilpi Choudhry, welcoming the gathering, said, Celebrating Women is honouring women and by honouring women one is creating a gender-friendly environment.

Joyce Sunder, Principal of the College and Director of the Centre, spoke about the initiatives taken by the college in empowering young women. Padma Srinivas, Chairperson, Karnataka State Social Welfare Board spoke on the role of the State Commission for Women, the Department of Women and Child and the Social Welfare Board in supporting women’s cause in promoting a gender-equal society.

    The plays were choreographed by Shilpi Choudhry, Head, Department of History. The Kamsale which was generally performed by men was re-adapted to make it  a women-centric performance. Kavitha Rudresh, faculty, Department of Sociology, proposed a vote of thanks.
