Centre for Women’s Study at AMU

Chairman of the University Grants Commission, Professor Hari Gautam has announced on 9 February to set up a Centre for Women’s Study at AMU and said that the founder of this college, Shaikh Abdullah was a crusader of female education, a century ago.

Dr Gautam was inaugurating a two-day national seminar on “Shaikh Mohammad Abullah” at AMU Women’s College. He said that woman is much stronger physiologically, emotionally, psychologically and physically than man and added that empowerment of women was a must for the country’s development .He said that educated woman can preserve the cultural heritage of this country and warned about the threat of western culture.

Dr Gautam said that one of the great hurdles in the way of country’s progress was growing population which was directly related to female illiteracy and urged the girl students to study various vocational courses like jewellery, gemology, fashion technology, information technology and biotechnology. He said that biotechnology was going to play an important role in the development process.

He said that AMU and BHU are the largest and prestigious universities in the country and rest are the centres of higher learning.

Delivering the keynote address, Dr Vina Mazumdar, Chairperson of the Centre for Women’s Development Studies, New Delhi urged the women to meet the challenges of globalization and study technologies of the future. She said that education of women should be re-oriented to face the challenges of the 21st century.

Dr Mazumdar said that the birth rate of female child is declining day by day because mostly urban based educated women did not want to give birth to a female child and urged the UGC to set-up a committee to study the issue.

In his presidential address, AMU Vice Chancellor, M Hamid Ansari said that education should be taken to the grass root level. He said that elementary education was a must for every girl. He thanked the Chairman, UGC for offering the Women’s Study Centre at AMU.

While welcoming the delegates, Professor Zakia A. Siddiqui, secretary of the female education association said that women are still living in poverty, ignorance, ill health and all kinds of discrimination. Education is the sole medium through which women can face the challenges of 21st century.

Prof Siddiqui pointed out one of the purposes of this seminar was to highlight the plight of female coming from lower strata of society and create awareness among them for education, self-employment and equal status.
