REPORT OF EXPERT COMMITTEE ON GENDER AND EDUCATION

REPORT OF EXPERT COMMITTEE ON GENDER AND EDUCATION-Deeply concerned with rising trends of social intolerance, and more particularly crimes against women, the National Commission for Women felt the need to set up an Expert Committee on Gender & Education. Undoubtedly efforts are being made to address the
situation by the Government by formulating more legislation for the protection of women. However, simultaneously there is a growing realization that there is an imperative need to change the stereotyped mindset, specially of men and the community at large, which can only be done by purposeful and effective gender sensitization. It is increasingly being felt that the long-term solution lies in imparting gender sensitive values through education, since education is of prime significance in the communication of that which is central to the transformation of the human mind. Questions have been raised of the basic postulates of the educational structure and its various systems in India, with the conclusion that the existing models have failed and there is total lack of relevance between the human being and the complex contemporary society. Today’s modern technology driven India requires the creation of a new culture – values of democracy, respect for human rights and equality.DOWNLOAD FULL REPORT
