By: Usha | 30 May 2018 12:00 AM

In the backdrop of national outrage over increasing rate of crime against women and children followed by incidents of Nirbaya, Unnao and Kathua, it is important to raise the following questions: Who is responsible for violence against women and children? Is it a women’s issue? Is it a men’s issue? How the discourses around gender should be shaped?

Centre for Research on Women and Society, Sampurna is organizing a certificate course on ‘Gender Sensitization’ on 4th June till 23rd June, 2018 at Sampurna, Razapur, Sector- 9, Rohini, Delhi (Near N.K. Bhargodia Public School).

We often hear our parents, teachers and elders saying, “Tu meri beti nahi, beta hai.” Such narratives reflect how we reinforce the patriarchal beliefs and stereotypes about gender in our society.

This course will highlight on the following topics:

  1. Gender, Gender identity and Self
  2. “Girls wear pink, boys wear blue”: Gender stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination.
  3. You will find mummy in the kitchen: The contest of gendered spaces at home
  4. “Different but equal”: Why feminism is both men as well as women’s issue?
  5. Oh, boys don’t cry: Gender expectations and Gender role.
  6. Munni badnaam hui, darling tere liye: Glorification of objectification of women by media and Bollywood
  7. Chowmein consumption leads to rape: India’s rape culture and victim blaming
  8. India has the highest number of educated housewives in the world: Gender and public space.
  9. Women are honour of the family and men are its reservoirs: Societal’s expectations, Group conformity and social norms
  10. Lets talk about it: Bystander Intervention

Every lecture will adopt unique pedagogical tools such as role plays, videos, situations, movie screening following by take home assignments.

The lecture will be followed by a self- defence training programme for the candidates by Delhi Police.

Dates: 4th June to 23rd June, 2018

Time: 11AM to 2 PM
