It is the first Women’s University in Tamilnadu offering regular M.A., M.Phil and Ph.D courses in Women’s Studies. ‘Women’s Studies’ as a discipline of academia helps to transform other disciplines by integrating feminist perspectives. The various activities of the Department and Centre for Women’s Studies pave way to bring out more visible research and policy debates which would be raised by women from dalit, tribal, labouring, sexual and other minority communities including religion. It plays a vital role to bring out change in the society by understanding women, ensuring their participation in the policy formulation in order to establish a just and secular society in India. To empower the rural public, livelihood opportunities, awareness programmes and entrepreneurship trainings are being conducted at the women’s studies Training centre, Pallapatti.
