The University Grants Commission has made official recommendations on college programs. UGC asked affiliated colleges and universities to include gender awareness and women’s safety content in their curriculum, with the proposed motivation to educate students about women’s contribution to society.
The Union Ministry of Education sent the UGC a letter on the report of the Standing Committee on Internal Affairs of Parliament, entitled “Atrocities against crimes against women and children”, asking it to introduce the necessary changes according to the situation. Universities are urged to include more content on leadership, sacrifice, and the role of women in various fields. The new program proposed by the UGC would also aim to eliminate stereotypes or negative attitudes towards women.
UGC recommended that universities, “in addition to increasing gender awareness about leadership, sacrifice and the prominent role of women in all areas of life, include more content in the curriculum to create a sense of respect for women and fight against the negative state of there are minds or stereotypes that may arise in society ”.
The UGC has also encouraged institutes to organize conferences and webinars on the topic of “women’s safety” to raise awareness of the dignity and respect of women. The University Scholarship Committee also proposed to sensitize young people about the rights of women and the need to guarantee their safety in society by including these topics in the curricula of colleges and universities.
