WOMEN EMPOWERMENT CELL

ABOUT

          Every citizen of the country, male and female, enjoys the right to education and employment in an environment of safety and security. The Constitution of India provides for "Gender Equality" and the "Right to life and liberty" to all persons under Articles 14, 19 and 21.It is thus the duty and mandate of every organization to provide maintenance of the fundamental rights to live and work with dignity for all employees: male and female. At the same time, persons sometimes face violations of their fundamental rights. This necessitates the establishment of safeguards to provide gender equality. Due to the historical reasons, working women often face difficulties and challenges at the work place, thereby necessitating the need for protective measures that safeguard womens rights and safety. The Women Empowerment Cell of the University College of Engineering Tindivanam was established in September, 2014 to address the practical issues related to the welfare of and equal opportunities for Women faculty members, staff and students.
