About Human Rights and Gender Studies Committee

The Human Rights and Gender Studies Committee aimed at the promotion and protection of the rights of every individual by spreading awareness via organizing various events. These activities sought to focus on intersectional humanities concepts such as domestic violence, including the various forms of gender-based violence or abuse (sexual, physical, verbal, emotional, and economic), crimes against children, hate crimes against marginalized communities, LGBTQIA+, and their standpoints, comparative discourse on various public policies on education, housing, labour welfare, personal benefits, medicine, etc., and persons with disabilities among countless other past, present and emerging issues

About the Course
