The Centre for Women’s Studies was established at the IIS (Deemed to be University), Jaipur in 2009 in accordance with the UGC guidelines. From its inception the university has taken implicit responsibility of transforming the lives of women, especially making the young girls “World Ready Women”. There are a number of structural, social, psychological and emotional barriers which impede the progress of women. In order to overcome these barriers a dedicated Centre for Women’s Studies has been established for undertaking teaching, research, documentation and community outreach activities.
