Our National Policy emphasizes the elimination of
discrimination and all forms of violence against women in both
the public and the private sphere. In adherence to the above
objective, the College has an Anti-Sexual Harassment Cell
comprising senior faculty members and headed by the Principal
for handling complaints of sexual harassment. In 2014, close
circuit cameras were installed at strategic points to keep vigil
on occurrence of untoward incidents.
Since its establishment in 1938, the College has strived to translate the ideals of its mentors of empowering women to make them capable home builders, worthy citizens and conscientious women in their chosen fields, not merely through formal education. Accordingly, gender sensitivity is ingrained in the culture of this College. Specific programmes are organised for furtherance of this objective.
On 22nd March, 2014, the College in association with SAMAGAM, an NGO, organised a One-day workshop titled - "Atrocities on Women vis-a-vis role of Counselling", where a representative of the Kolkata Police and an eminent lawyer and a representative of CINI Asha addressed the students and took questions from them as well, to make them conscious of their rights and prerogatives as women. Thereafter, students of various departments presented skits and theme shows reflecting abuse of women in different social spaces namely the family, the workplace and other social areas.
