 In fact, most students consider themselves privileged to be a part of this club’s activities. Enabling and empowering women is the agenda of this club, which also takes efforts to create awareness about the rights and responsibilities of women.
All the events held by this club are centred around sensitising students on women’s issues, enlightening the girls on legal issues, empowering women to deal with violence and crime against them and also other civic rights.

Manjula, a second semester BSc student says, “I am so interested in activities which deal with the upbringing of women, so my immediate choice was this club. There are very good programmes which help the students in many ways. When we meet elite women who come and give us talks and encourage us to come up in life, it actually helps a lot and increases our self confidence.”
The activities of this club include street plays, seminars, workshops, awareness programmes on various topics, panel discussions and many more. The activities are all based on topics related to women like adolescence, abuse, entrepreneurship and dowry. All the students of Maharani’s are members of this club, and can attend the meetings and functions.

Manyata, a fifth semester B.Sc student says, “I am a very active member of Women’s Forum club and the club holds activities which are very beneficial for the students. This way, the students are aware of many things in and around their environment. In our college, it is considered to be great if a girl is working seriously for any event of this club.”

There is a student body which takes up all the responsibilities. A unique event held by this club, which is loved by most students, is on Women’s Day. On this day, the former students of this college, who have made it big in life are invited and felicitated, and all the students get to interact with them.
Meghana, a third semester BA student says, “This was the first club which I joined, when I came to this college. I joined it without even thinking twice, as I had heard so much about the club from my seniors. All the activities of the club were also put up on the notice board, which drew my interest. So I joined it right away.”
