    Women's Studies Centre

    Arul Anandar College is located in Usilampatti Taluk an area which had been declared by the Government of Tamil Nadu as Female Infanticide Taluk (Madurai 2004-A Statistical Hand Book). The status of rural Indian women is more appalling and heart rending. They are deprived of all rights and almost are reduced to objects meant for exploitation. As per the medieval perception, woman requires no education save that of household chores. It is sad to note that still the medieval perception persists in most of the villages. Usilampatti Taluk is not an exception, as elsewhere here too women undergo the gender disparity. The girl child is an unwanted appendage and considered to be a curse and a loathsome burden. Education is a farfetched dream for her. The female illiteracy has subsequently led to social issues such as child labour and child marriage. Despite the government taking stringent measures to curb these practices still it persists. Unbridled subjugation of women and nullifying of their very existence is a common knowledge in this area.

    Ushering in a New Phase for the Rural Women

    It is in this context that the Jesuit Community which is worldwide acclaimed for its educational service through its prestigious academic institutions willfully chose a rural ambience in Madurai District in order to uplift the rural youth socially and economically by imparting value based, quality education. The institution, as one of its best practices, opened its portals in the year 2000 for the women in order to empower them. Arul Anandar College stands distinctive amidst the other Jesuit Institutions as it is the sole institution to admit girl students for both UG and PG programmes. It was indeed a blessing for the women who were banned of tasting the fruit of pursuing the higher education and constrained within four walls after their school education. Since then there has been a constant increase in the number of women entering the academia. At present nearly 886 girl students have enrolled themselves in pursuing their studies and thereby empowering themselves.

    Objectives of Centre for Women`s Studies

  • Establishing the library and documentation centre
  • Creating awareness to the students and local women on various issues pertaining to women and gender.
  • Providing the women periodical trainings that build their soft and technical skills.
  • Holding Curriculum Development Programme
  • Information dissemination by way of publication
  • To impart knowledge of women`s rights
  • To sensitize about gender discrimination
  • To go beyond the economic and social factor and to probe the patriarchal and discriminatory practices in the educational policies and infrastructural provision that prevent access to women of the existing facilities.
  • To undertake various steps in one`s own institution, by way of policies and structures that would enable women to overcome their difficulties and move upwards.
  • To identify the persistent gender gaps and injustices within the institutional system and overcome the gaps.
  • Awareness Programme

    The college through the centre has been striving its best to create awareness among the women on the following issues:

  • Breast Cancer
  • Domestic Violence against Women
  • Women`s Issues
  • Breast Feeding
  • Women in Media
  • Mental Health Care
  • Legal Literacy Programme

    Dissemination and literacy are the only means by which the issues of suppressed women can be redressed. It is mandatory for every woman to be conscious of the legal rights hence the college took the effect of organizing guest lectures on Legal Literacy for the students as well as the uneducated rural women. The guest lecturers were focused on the following topics:

  • Women and Law
  • Women and Criminal Law
  • Women & Property Rights
  • Women & Marriage Law
  • Life Skills
  • Women and Health
  • Women`s Rights are Human Rights
