With this age being heralded as the age of women empowerment, Jaipur Engineering College and Research Centre (JECRC) made sure that it contributes to the cause. The college celebrated International Women’s Day with much enthusiasm from its students as they vowed a pledge to respect women and treat them with dignity and equality. The students of JECRC also performed a Nukkad Natak in the college premises that centered on women empowerment.
Director of JECRC Foundation Shri Arpit Agrawal addressed the gathering during the celebration with a motivational speech.
JECRC has a dedicated team that works for women empowerment – Suhasini. Suhasini runs with the tagline ‘An Initiative to Save the Smile of Girl Child’. After the success accomplishment of the celebration in college, team Suhasini visited a village Barah Meel for a door to door visit to raise awareness on the matter.
“Our head is bowed down with shame when we look at the trials women have to go through in this unequal and patriarchal society. Sexual assaults, dowry related issues, disrespect, domestication, domestic violence, and so much more is still happening in the society and it is mind boggling,” said the vice-chairman of JECRC Amit Agarwal. He added, “We firmly believe that the only plausible solution to the problem can be ascertained through education and awareness. Not just men but women who advocate the society’s patriarchal rules also need to believe in gender equality from their soul.”
